School Business Alerts


On this page...

Since the 1989-1990 school year, the Department has published the monthly School Business Alert newsletter sharing relevant and timely information regarding school finance in Iowa. Topics are identified through collaborative efforts led by members of the bureau of school business operations and including other internal teams, other state agencies, and requests from the field. Monthly distribution includes each school district’s and AEA’s designated school business official(s), as well as others who have signed up to receive the newsletter.  Recent issues of the School Business Alert are available below. Past issues are available upon request.
