We will show the changes that have taken place for the new year, where to find application materials; plus review the application approval process which includes instructions on how to use ICAVES (Iowa Certification and Verification Excel Spreadsheet).

In addition, we will be covering the details of Iowa's participation in a pilot program which allows SFAs to directly certify additional students.
