Support to local schools is provided through three service areas: Educational Services, Information & Technology and Special Education. Prairie Lakes AEA supports educators, parents, and the communities we serve as we work together toward one ultimate goal--to improve student learning. Our region stretches over 14 counties including 40 public and 11 accredited nonpublic schools.
