Work-based learning clearinghouse to be established


Gov. Kim Reynolds signed her first executive order today to establish the Iowa Clearinghouse for Work-Based Learning. The initiative will be a joint venture of the Iowa Department of Education and Iowa Area Education Agencies Learning Online. Together, they will facilitate distance K-12 school-business partnerships and build an inventory of established and newly created work-based learning opportunities for K-12 students as well as students in college and trade schools, the governor said in a press release. Fareway Stores Inc. will be the first company to partner with the state in the clearinghouse, Reynolds’ office said. An advisory board will be formed to include business and industry representatives as half its members. The governor’s budget includes $250,000 for the clearinghouse as part of the Future Ready Iowa Initiative. The goal is to launch the clearinghouse by July 1, 2019.
