Van Delivery




Green Hills AEA media vans will transport learning materials, written communications, lamination, printing, and equipment to buildings throughout our service area on a twice-a-week delivery schedule. Each piece of mail being sent on the van should be clearly marked with the name of the person to whom it is being sent, the school district and building name, and van route number.

Print & Design/Creative Services




For Schools

In order to be more efficient and to offer schools a wider range of print, design, and specialty products, Green Hills is partnering with Heartland AEA. All school orders for copy, design or other products will go to Heartland AEA Creative Services via an online ordering system. Our Green Hills vans will continue to deliver completed orders to schools. Schools will have access to a more comprehensive set of print and design products.

Orders for lamination only will still be done at Green Hills AEA

Cooperative Purchasing




AEA Cooperative Purchasing is formed under the Code of Iowa as a 28E entity and is an initiative of Iowa’s Area Education Agencies. The goal of AEA Purchasing is to combine the purchasing power of Iowa school districts to offer aggressive pricing on materials, goods, and services. In 2014 participating Iowa schools and AEA’s saved over $7 million on their purchases through the program. Participation in AEA Purchasing is without cost to Iowa’s schools in that it is funded by small fees paid by the vendors.
