ACCELERATED LEARNING OPTIONS

The sole piece of legislation addressing Advanced Placement established an AP instructor training program at the State University of Iowa. Since the late 1980s, however, Iowa public policy has encouraged dual enrollment opportunities in multiple ways, providing particular support for career and technical programs that span the secondary and postsecondary sectors. The Postsecondary Enrollment Options Act of 1987 states that 11th- and 12th grade students, along with gifted and talented ninth- and tenth-grade students, may enroll part-time in college courses in order to have access to rigorous academic or career and technical coursework. The educational institutions themselves determine student eligibility. School districts must grant high school credit for college courses, but can determine the number of credits to award for each college course. School districts must also pay the higher education institutions a maximum of $250 per course to cover tuition, fees, and textbooks; the legislation specifically states that students are not to be charged for their participation. However, students must reimburse the districts if they do not complete or pass the course (with some exceptions). As this funding arrangement was perceived as a disincentive to high school and college participation, in 1998 new legislation provided for supplemental weighted funding, in which school districts may receive 1.48 percent funding for every high school student enrolled in community college courses. To receive the weighted funding, districts must verify that the college course is for credit and that the credit is applicable to a degree, among other quality criteria. Additional legislation was passed in 2002 to support dual enrollment as part of career academies. Career academies are defined in the legislation as a program of study that combines a minimum of two years of secondary education with a postsecondary career preparatory program in a non-duplicative, sequential course of study that is standards-based, integrates academic and technical instruction, incorporates work-based learning, uses an individualized career planning process that involves parents, and leads to an associate degree or certificate. Finally, the Iowa Department of Education's approval process for secondary career and technical education programs requires documentation of articulation with a community college.

ADULT LEARNERS

Iowa's Department of Education oversees the state's adult literacy program that takes place across the state's 15 community colleges. Iowa's adult basic education, English literacy and ELL, family literacy, and GED program areas help adults acquire basic education skills. Any Iowa Community College receiving funding for the Pathways for Academic Career and Employment Program is required to develop a curriculum that makes it easy to move between adult basic education, GED, continuing education, and credit certificate, diploma, and degree programs according to State statute (Iowa Code 260H.7). Iowa school boards can provide evening schools and adult education programs. Any school board or community college that offers general adult basic education classes is required by statute (Iowa Code 279.50) to occasionally offer instructional programs in parenting skills and in human growth and development for parents, guardians, and prospective parents. (Last updated 2013).

ARTICULATION, TRANSFER, AND ALIGNMENT

Articulation and transfer agreements in Iowa are for the most part voluntary. The Liaison Advisory Committee on Transfer Students (LACTS), originally established in 1972, created eight statewide transfer agreements, the most notable of which is the Associate of Arts Articulation Agreement between the state's 15 community colleges and the three "Regent Universities" - the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, and the University of Northern Iowa. According to the agreement, community college students who fulfill all A.A. degree requirements will be granted junior-level status upon transfer to the four-year institutions. Other areas of agreement between the community colleges and the public universities include career and technical credits, common grading definitions, the College Level Examination Program, military credits, and electronic-based technologies. There are currently over 200 agreements in place between community colleges and the public universities in Iowa. The state maintains a "www.TransferInIowa.org" website which allows students to access information related to these statewide agreements and navigate the transfer process as outlined by the LACTS and the Iowa Board of Regents. Furthermore, legislation passed in 2003 established Career Academies designed to create seamless career and technical education programs between high schools and community colleges in the state.

DATA AND ACCOUNTABILITY SYSTEMS

A unique statewide student identifier is required for every public school student in prekindergarten - 12th grade in the Iowa, which is used for a variety of reporting purposes. While colleges and universities report that individual institutions use performance based budgeting and reporting, there are no statewide accountability mandates that link institutional performance to state budget allocations.

FINANCE

The Board of Regents is responsible for establishing resident and nonresident fees and student charges at the Regent institutions. Each proposed increase in student charges is presented to the Board twice by university presidents - first for preliminary consideration and public notice requirements, and second for final approval. The Board must adopt a policy for establishing tuition that provides some predictability for assessing and anticipating changes. Resident undergraduate tuition is set annually to keep pace with the Higher Education Price Index (HEPI). At the community colleges, each board of directors has the authority to determine tuition rates. Full-time resident students enrolled at an accredited private institution and who establish financial need may be awarded tuition grants for not more than eight semesters of undergraduate study or the trimester or quarter equivalent. (Prepared by the State Higher Education Executive Officers, 2008)

RESIDENCY

Residency policies are set by the Iowa Board of Regents as specified by the Iowa Administrative Code. Eligibility for resident tuition benefits is contingent upon the student's reason for being in Iowa. If he or she is in Iowa primarily for educational purposes, he or she will be considered a nonresident. A student's domicile is the most influential factor in determining eligibility for resident tuition benefits. In order to be classified as a resident for tuition purposes, a student or the persons legally responsible for the student must have resided in Iowa for at least one continuous year prior to enrollment. Members of the military who are stationed in Iowa, along with their dependents, are considered residents of the state. Additionally, those who have been granted refugee status asylum by the appropriate agency of the United States are granted resident status. However, resident tuition benefits are not granted to those individuals without legal immigration status. Members of Native American tribes present in Iowa are granted resident tuition benefits.

STUDENT FINANCIAL AID

The Iowa College Student Aid Commission administers various state and federal student aid programs. The Iowa Tuition Grant is for applicants with the greatest financial need. Moreover, the Iowa Grant is a need-based program that supports students attending public and independent colleges and universities, as well as community colleges in the state. Iowa's aid includes the merit-based Robert C. Byrd Honors Scholarship; the Robert D. Blue Scholarship, which awards students who demonstrate literary and scholastic ability and exhibit qualities of truth, courage, fellowship and strong moral character; the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation Scholarship for those students working towards a degree in an agricultural field; and the Iowa State Fair Scholarship, for students who participate in the Iowa State Fair. The Iowa College Student Aid Commission guarantees several student loan programs. In addition, this state has a Teacher Shortage Forgivable Loan Program. For the 2005-2006 academic year, Iowa spent 53,446 million for need-based aid and 368,000 for non-need-based aid. (Prepared by the State Higher Education Executive Officers, 2008)

TEACHING QUALITY

In 2001, Iowa passed SF 476, its student achievement and teaching quality program, setting up career paths with compensation based on locally derived performance measures, as well funding mentoring, professional development and a team-based performance pay pilot. However, this tiered licensure program and pay pilot was never fully funded or implemented. In 2005, the legislature enacted legislation again establishing framework for performance pay, and the governor created the Pay for Performance Commission within the executive branch to investigate and recommend implementation strategies. In the end, the commission did not recommend a state-wide performance pay system and instead suggested amendments to existing language if pilots were to be authorized and embraced working within the current system to move toward change compensation and career ladders for teachers.
