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, physical therapy equipment and other materials 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 building should be posted where staff can see them.

Your building or office also has one drop site where borrowed items to be returned to Heartland AEA are to be placed for pickup. Items being sent back to the Agency should be properly addressed to ensure delivery to the correct person or department. Please include on the address label or envelope:

Iowa’s AEAs Van Delivery Guidelines for External Organizations

On occasion, external organizations make requests for their materials to be distributed through an AEA’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 Van Delivery Request form below. 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.
