Manage compliance and capitalize on reporting

Use reporting to manage compliance, identifying timelines and which teachers are on track or which teachers have fallen behind.

Reports beyond state requirements

Easily run required state and district reports, and if allowed, send data directly to the state. Identify trends and address problems through training or professional development.

Intuitive and easy-to-use

Our system is easy to use and designed to guide users through workflows of what needs to be done. Take confidence knowing you’ve met requirements.

Transparent progress monitoring

Involve parents and build communication and understanding using progress monitoring with charts showing student growth over time.

Manage special education services with an all-in-one solution.

Customize our platform built by educators for educators to meet both district and state requirements.

PowerSchool Special education covers all areas of education including 504 processes, services capture for Medicaid billing, special education case management, gifted and talented, English language learners, and Response to Intervention (RTI). Take confidence in a comprehensive system that meets your needs, such as a case management system combined with tracking clinical services to ensure the delivery of IEPs and alignment of IEPs to state and local goals. Our system is designed to support districts in meeting results-driven accountability requirements that in turn positively impacts student education and growth.

"[PowerSchool Special Education] has earned its reputation for vastly improving the quality of special education and documentation… Users now depend on the many benefits of the program and recognize its place as a central foundational piece in the entire special education process."

Bridging general education and special education

Customize our Response to Intervention (RTI) system to quickly identify students with early warning signs in general education who need an intervention. Implement timely interventions to help students get back on track before a referral to special education becomes necessary.

PowerSchool Special Education makes it easy to efficiently manage the requirements of students with special needs who have certain accommodations as part of their Section 504 eligibility, but may or may not be classified as special education students. Make data-driven decisions about issues affecting learning and escalate interventions if accommodations don’t meet student needs.
