This school improvement process is intended to increase the capabilities of Iowa's schools, families, and communities to enhance the social, emotional, intellectual, and behavioral development and meet the increasingly complex needs of children and youth. Learning Supports may be defined as activities, programs and services beyond core classroom instruction that are intended to facilitate the learning process to ensure student success.


Systems of learning supports are designed to improve results addressing the health and social competence of children and youth, their preparation for productive adulthood, and the family, school, and community contexts that nurture their growth. These results are contributing factors to school success.
