Iowa’s AEAs and AEA Learning Online have collaborated to move our individual professional learning and licensure registration systems to one statewide professional learning registration system. It creates greater equity and consistency in programming and resources to help support quality professional learning. Thank you for your patience as we transition to the new system!

Mr. Fleece and I are very proud of our students who represented our Burlington Community School District at State Future Problem Solving this past month in Ames! We had one junior team receive 4th place overall in their division and our middle team received a 5th place for their action plan skit. This was the second state appearance for our two 6th grade teams and high school team. The students were focused and worked hard on this year’s topic of cloud storage. We are excited to see these teams continue to grow! Please congratulate these students when you see them.
On April 25, FMHS hosted a Transition Resource Event for students and families. Transition services are provided to assist students in smooth transitions to postsecondary living, learning, and working based on students’ individualized interests and needs. This event included a panel presentation by local educators and service providers, with plenty of questions asked by audience members. Parents, students, and teachers engaged in conversations intended to build the success of their students, and connections were made between students and support opportunities to help them reach their goals.
FMHS students were involved in baking cookies for the event and creating the flier to invite families. A BIG “thank you!” to Abby (FMHS student) for emceeing the event!
Panel participants included: Aleena Garr (Vocational Rehabilitation), Lenae Greene (Iowa Works), Ryanne Wood (SEIL), Kelly Wallace (GPAEA Parent Educator Partnership Coordinator), Kate Cole (GPAEA Transition Coordinator), Angie Mickelson (SCC Disability Coordinator), Jillian Flanders (Job Corps), Mary Hofmann (Intermediary).
