Van Delivery

Iowa's AEA van delivery guidelines have updated!

Iowa's AEAs have made changes to the van delivery process. Here are a few notable key changes.

  • All van delivery requests must be submitted using this Google form.
  • For profit organizations are no longer eligible for van delivery through the AEA. Non-profit organizations are only eligible if the materials being distributed have a pre-K-12 educational focus OR advocate for children and families.
  • Please contact us at if you have any questions related to these changes.

Van Delivery and Materials Distribution

Grant Wood Area Education Agency (Grant Wood AEA) provides delivery to each public and  accredited nonpublic building in the Agency’s seven county service area. Deliveries can include, among other things, Grant Wood AEA communications, Media Center resources, Creative Services printing and inter-district correspondence.

Delivery Details

Deliveries during the school year are made twice weekly to each building in a district on either Monday and Thursday or Tuesday and Friday. Delivery to the Cedar Rapids Community School District warehouse is daily, they in-turn deliver to their buildings.

Van Procedures for External Requests

Important: Please note that sensitive documents such as student records should be sent using the U.S. mail to ensure privacy and timely delivery.

Each building has one location where van delivery is picked up and dropped off. All items should be addressed properly to ensure delivery to the correct person, building and district. Mail that is not addressed correctly will be sent to the district administration office. We do not hold any mail. For your convenience, here is a label template to use:
