IEP drafting… evaluations and eligibility determination… meeting schedules and invitations… tracking and compliance… due process and procedural safeguards… state special education requirements… state data warehouse reports… confidentiality of information.

Throughout the special education process, the time and burden of administrative tasks and paperwork are growing while staff resources are getting tighter.

IEP Direct is a proven state-specific solution with a track record of saving time and effort, improving compliance and reducing the complexity of managing Special Education programs and IEPs. 

State-specific Special Ed requirements

There are vast differences in Special Education requirements from state to state. That is why, unlike the products of other companies that offer generic software, IEP Direct is a truly customized state-specific solution. Each state-specific version of IEP Direct is designed to align fully with state requirements. The customization of IEP Direct goes far beyond state-specific forms and reports. Every aspect of the product, content, training and support is state-specific. The result is a truly best-of-class solution that will help you save time, improve compliance and enhance quality.

Data seamlessly shared between general education student information system and IEP Direct.

Data can be seamlessly shared between your district's general education student information system and IEP Direct. Instead of the labor-intensive and error-prone process of entering and updating student and guardian demographic records into two systems, IEP Direct automatically updates the information from your general education student information system. In this way, IEP Direct will eliminate redundant data entry, improve data accuracy and save time.
