Iowa State Dept. of Education, Des Moines.; Iowa Association of Adult and Continuing Education Deans and Directors, Des Moines.
Section 121 of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA) requires Regional Workforce Investment Boards (RWIB) to develop a memorandum of understanding (MOUs) with the Regional Workforce Development Center (RWDC) partners to detail how resources will be coordinated across funding streams to operate and provide services for RWDC delivery systems. This document provides guidelines designed to serve as a model for Iowa's community college-based adult basic education local program providers for inclusion of basic literacy skills programs, services, funding, and ancillary services in the RWIB's MOU developed under Title II of the WIA. The document is organized into the following sections: (1) MOU definition; (2) MOU guideline assumptions; (3) required partners to be included in the RWIB MOU; (4) required components of the MOU; (5) failure to execute an MOU; (6) sources of information; (7) Attachment A (national reporting system performance measures, benchmarks, methodologies); and (8) Attachment B (suggested guidelines for costs allocation plans).
