Van Delivery/Distribution

photo of Heartland AEA vanHeartland AEA provides van delivery service to each school in the Agency's service area. Materials shared between schools through interlibrary loan can be delivered via our vans as well.

Delivery Details

Media resources and other agency communications are delivered to each school building and AEA office on a scheduled basis during the school year (twice a week) and summer (once a week to district offices and to other buildings by request). Delivery schedules for each district and building should be posted in school/district offices and staff rooms. Your building or office also has one drop site where borrowed items to be returned to Heartland AEA are to be placed for pickup. Correspondence or items being sent back to the Agency should be addressed properly to ensure delivery to the correct person, office and department. Please include on the address label or envelope: NAME, BUILDING, CITY and RETURN ADDRESS.

Dissemination of Information & Materials For External Organizations

External organizations may make use of Heartland AEA's van delivery service in disseminating materials to schools in our service area. The Agency has established guidelines for the dissemination of materials by these types of organizations. Information from external organizations may also be disseminated to schools via electronic means--either e-mail or our weekly newsletter for district administrators. Either way, the information requested to be disseminated must meet the following criteria:

  • Has a pre-K-12 educational focus related to educators and/or students
  • Advocates for children and families
