Website changes: See what’s new


Thursday, October 17, 2013

Welcome to the Iowa Department of Education’s website, which has undergone some changes in an effort to meet a new standard for all state agency websites. These changes will result in a more functional and secure website.

You’ll notice that our website has a different look now, but it is organized in much the same way as the previous version was.

One nice change is a working search bar in the upper right-hand corner of the website. This custom search bar will allow all users to more easily search the content of our web pages and documents. This was not a reliable function on our old platform, which left many users to default to an A to Z list to search for important information. (The A to Z list still exists in the navigation bar of the new platform as well.)

In the short term, some links within the website may be broken, and some bookmarks used to save web pages previously may not work. While we are working to redirect these links, some may be missed because of the large size and volume of the website. We appreciate your patience as we work to fix any issues associated with this website transition.

Watch this video to learn more about the website changes.

Questions about troubleshooting or locating information on the website should be directed to Lisa Albers, the Iowa Department of Education’s web content manager, at or 515-281-0972.
