Podcast: Special Education Software Companies as District Partners

Special Education


In special education, the road to choosing a software program to support administration and program management is different than in other areas of K-12 education. One difference is because of complex, state-specific compliance requirements — but there are other variables that make selecting the right software a complicated journey.

This podcast explores the intricacies of the relationship between an educational organization and its IEP and special education management software provider, through the lenses of a superintendent and a special education director working on the front line of K-12 education.

There’s the expectation that your vendor has the bird’s eye view of what’s going on. Don’t forget, if you are working as a special education director in a school district, you may have colleagues you can talk to, but by and large you are a sole practitioner within that district. You are looking to your vendor as a partner to help you predict what’s going on down the line.” ― Dr. Tom Reap, former special education director and administrator, Frontline Education

Choosing one vendor to manage special education, 504 and RTI data saves staff time and energy as students change programs. Learn how Frontline Special Ed & Interventions can ease the administrative burden in your organization.
