PowerSchool’s Special Education Case Management and Response to Intervention Solutions Re-Endorsed by Council of Administrators of Special Education
Re-endorsement represents PowerSchool’s commitment to state and federal compliance while meeting students’ specific needs
Folsom, CA – July 20, 2016 – PowerSchool, the leading provider of K-12 education technology solutions, today announced that its Special Education Case Management and Response to Intervention (RTI) solutions have been re-endorsed by the Council of Administrators of Special Education (CASE). The re-endorsements symbolize PowerSchool’s commitment to providing schools and districts with comprehensive tools to better meet students’ specific learning and behavioral needs while also ensuring compliance with state and federal requirements.
CASE is an international professional educational organization whose mission is to provide leadership and support to members by shaping policies and practices which impact the quality of education. The endorsement process is a thorough evaluation verifying that products meet state and federal government requirements as well as the professional standards of the organization that represents special education leaders throughout the world. Key areas of focus include:
• Product development in the last five years
• Client satisfaction data
• Referenceable contacts
• Evidence that the product improves outcomes for children with disabilities
A recent report stated that the U.S. Department of Education’s latest evaluation of state implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act found about half of states are not meeting special education requirements. A major factor contributing to that staggering number is educators not having access to adequate resources that fully equip them to accommodate a student’s rate of learning.
PowerSchool’s Special Education Case Management and RTI solutions offer comprehensive tracking, providing individualized instruction paths and progress monitoring of the entire Individualized Education Program (IEP) process, allowing school districts to provide high quality educational services to all students.
“Ensuring the success of all students in the classroom requires having access to efficient resources that help facilitate instruction, identify where students are struggling, and allow for implementation and tracking of interventions to get those students back on track,” stated Oliver Wreford, VP of Strategy and Marketing at PowerSchool. “CASE’s endorsement of PowerSchool’s special education solutions is significant for K-12 educators as it reflects our ability to deliver solutions that empower administrators and teachers to support the academic progress of all students.”
