Administrators, teachers, counselors, occupational therapists and others can now contribute to a student's individualized education plan (IEP) process from any location with secure access to the Internet via Xperts Inc.'s IEP Online v5.0. The tool is a Web-based software product for special education student management that automates the entire process for tracking and reporting information on students with special needs.
The company says that IEP Online can improve efficiency of the IEP process by 50 percent, and substantially increases the accuracy of record keeping, resulting in an increase in financial aid and more effective care for exceptional children. Because the application follows the IEP workflow process used by most schools across the country, it's easy to use and understand. Educators enjoy significant reductions in administrative costs associated with implementing and maintaining this application across their school districts as well because the application is available online.
