What our customers are saying…
|“As an administrator, I am able to see a complete electronic record of all completed IEPs, including amendments, without having to pull the physical file. The report options in ProgressBook enable me to pull specific data directly from SpecialServices instead of combing through files and spreadsheets.”|
Kristen Prough, Director of Special Services, Stow-Munroe Falls City Schools
|“The district-to-district transfer when students move in or out of our district is fabulous. When new students transfer to our district, we can simply and quickly digitally import their information from another SpecialServices district. We have all the information we need to initiate services without waiting for hard copies to be mailed or faxed.”|
