This booklet compiles information on Iowa's statewide system of postsecondary area schools. A history of the junior college movement in Iowa and the formation of the area schools is provided, including statistical data covering the 10-year period 1966-1975. There are currently 15 area schools operating in Iowa. The merged areas of the schools include all counties in the state. The schools offer a wide range of programs, including: part-time adult education, vocational education, college parallel programs, agricultural production, community services, remedial programs, and special programs for high school students, the handicapped, and the institutionalized. Fall 1975 enrollment totalled 32,792, compared to 12,419 in fall 1966. Descriptions of each of the 15 schools are provided, covering statistical information, admissions, financial aid, costs, and programs. Also provided are detailed descriptions of each of the types of programs offered. A fiscal summary is included which covers the period 1967 to 1975, followed by a list of major legislation affecting the area schools. Much of the enrollment and financial data is tabulated throughout the document, and a map of Iowa showing the jurisdiction of each of the area schools is provided. (NHM)
