ACE Students Attend Legislative Day

February 15, 2011
Five Missouri Valley ACE students attended the Iowa Association of Alternative Education (IAAE) Legislative Day at the Capitol in Des Moines on Monday, February 14, 2011.  They joined numerous alternative schools and programs from across Iowa in setting up table displays showcasing their programs and drawing attention to the importance of having alternative education options available to students.  The students were able to meet other students and teachers and learn about other alternative schools and programs from across the state.
The highlight of the day was having Governor Branstad address the students about the importance of education and the realization that "one size does not fit all" when it comes to education.  The students also took a guided tour of the Capitol building learning about it's rich history.
