State OKs more education at Eldora juvenile home

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The state has agreed to provide additional educational services to current students and recent graduates of a juvenile home in Eldora that's previously been under investigation.

The Iowa Department of Human Services, which runs the Boys' State Training School, is providing the additional services as part of a corrective-action plan following two investigations. However, the state won't have to offer remedial services to youths who have left the program in recent years.

The investigations into the school concluded the state violated federal law by failing to provide the minimum level of education services to special education students. Similar federal violations were uncovered at the state-run Iowa Juvenile Home in Toledo, which was ordered to be closed in January.
