The Mahaska Wapello Early Childhood Iowa Board is made up of a variety of community members. No members work for an agency that directly receives Early Childhood Iowa Funding. It is important in order to maintain the objectiveness of the Board we do not allow members that work for, or represent in any way, agencies that receive Early Childhood Iowa Funding.
Our make-up is split between the two counties and is determined by the Legislative language set for us by the Early Childhood Iowa Board and the Iowa State Legislatures. We are required to have members from specific sectors of the community.
Board Meetings Scheduled

- 4th Thursday, October 27, 2022.
