Van Delivery/Distribution

Heartland 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:

Van Delivery Guidelines for External Organizations

Overview of Delivery Service

Iowa’s AEAs provide regular van delivery service to public districts and accredited non-public schools. This service is an integral part of the AEAs’ mission to improve student achievement.

On occasion, external organizations make requests for their materials to be distributed through an agency’s van delivery service. The following guidelines and procedures have been established to determine an organization’s eligibility for delivery. It is our intention to ensure necessary standardization and efficiencies for staff who handle items to be distributed, privacy for teachers and school districts and compliance with U.S. Postal regulations and the Iowa Code.

All requests for delivery of materials and information must be entered into the Request for Delivery of Materials Through Iowa’s AEAs Van Delivery Service form. Once decisions about the request have been made, requesters will be notified within 5 business days by someone from Iowa’s AEAs to confirm next steps.
