How to Apply for Waiver Services


If you were unable to join us for our Vitals in Transition: Zoom @ Noon today, we had two exceptional ladies, Beth Will and Eileen Skogerboe, share their expertise with us regarding Waivers. You can watch the video under our EVENTS tab: AEA Zoom Recordings – 2020-21.

 

A copy of the PowerPoint (with links) is also available under the video on the AEA Zoom Recordings, and is also linked HERE

We hope you will join us for Part 2 in this series on Tuesday, January 12th @ noon.

WIOA what?!?


No… that is NOT Iowa spelled incorrectly!  If you have heard the acronym “WIOA” it stands for Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.   WIOA is designed to help job seekers access employment, education, training, and support services to succeed in the labor market and to match employers with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy.

There are still lots of details to work out as this new process moves forward, so to help you have some basic information, here are several documents that may help you understand some of these changes:

  1.  Memorandum of Agreement notice between IVRS & the DE
  2.  WIOA Webinar Powerpoint  – Dec. 2015
  3.  WIOA Webinar – approximately 30 minutes
  4.  FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) 

All of the information above may be found on the Department of Education website under Special Education/Secondary Transition.

As more information comes out, we will keep you posted!

Driver’s license – great online practice tests!


The Iowa Department of Transportation has some great ways for students to practice for their driver’s license test.

 

Iowa Driver Practice Test site

Iowa DOT practice tests

There is also a new option that has an additional link you can open easily on your desktop! Iowa DOT practice test 2

Click on the DOT Motor Vehicle Link and you can also access the other options (Android, iPad, Kindle Fire) here as well.  These are very easy to use sites that your student/child can practice when they have some spare time.

The entire Driver’s License Manuel may also be viewed online (and printed in sections, if desired) for easy access.

Thanks, Iowa DOT, for making this available for use!
