Career and technical education draft rules comments due Friday

October 20, 2016

The Iowa Department of Education is accepting public comments through Friday on draft rules to implement a statute that would modernize career and technical education in Iowa. The statute, passed by the Legislature in 2016, was the result of recommendations made by a task force on which ABI participated. Comments may be submitted to or through the online comment form. Comments must be received by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 21, to allow the department to review all feedback before the proposed rules are advanced to the State Board of Education in early November. Members of the public will also be able to provide comments during the formal rulemaking process to follow.
