North Dakota To Roll Out Special Ed Management System

##AUTHORSPLIT##<--->

The North Dakota Department of Public Instruction (NDDPI) has signed on with Maximus for a $1 million state-wide implementation of TIENET, a special education case management system.

TIENET is a Web-based instructional management system for collecting, analyzing, and reporting student achievement data and perform monitoring activities to help improve learning outcomes. It also provides tools for communications with parents and various school, district, and state stakeholders. It's geared specifically toward special education.

"Our State wanted to provide a service for educators that will enhance their ability to use data to serve students more effectively," said Robert Rutten, director of the Office of Special Education for NDDPI, in a statement released Wednesday. "The TIENET system strengthens both instructional data management and special education case management, and it also makes it easier to meet reporting expectations."

NDDPI comprises 192 school districts serving more than 95,000 students as of fall 2006. The TIENET deployment is expected to be completed by October 2008.
