4+ programs in Iowa


Participation in a 4+ programs is an IEP team decision.  4+ programs are intended to give students vocational and life skills that will increase independence in adulthood.    The student remains on the home district special education roster so the school pays for the tuition, fees, and special education support.  There are multiple 4+ options for students in Iowa, yet each program has its own unique design.  Districts do not have to support specific programs, so obviously location to districts is an important consideration.  Below are links to 4+ programs in Iowa:
