Grant Wood Area Education Agency offers opportunities for professional learning to enhance educator skills and practices and improve student learning.
A New Registration System for Professional Learning
Grant Wood AEA has transitioned to a new professional learning registration system.
This single registration system will provide participants the ability to access professional learning activities offered at every AEA in Iowa through a statewide catalog. Access to both systems is available as we make this transition.
NOTE: your login will be the same login used for the AEA training system (i.e. the one that you likely use for blood borne pathogen and other annual training.)
