QuickSchools for Special Education

QuickSchools is fantastic for managing complex records and reports, such as the files kept for special education students. If you’re looking at how to setup your account to work best, given a handful of special education students – or a whole school body – here are some of the ways that we recommend tracking information.

The Students module can store tons of information - here are a few of the ways in which to use it for Special Education

Managing Records & Files

There are quite a few features that might be helpful for tracking forms, files, and special accommodations. Here are some highlights…

  • Documents – this tab in the Students module is like an online file-folder as it allows  for files to be uploaded and stored online, with the student’s primary record. It’s great for IEPs, 504-plans, or other official files – written accommodations or otherwise.
  • Medical – this tab in the student record is a tidy way to enter student medical information. For situations where there are special accommodations due to allergies, illness, or physical disabilities, the medical tab can be a clear and helpful way to track the information.
  • Custom Fields – this particular section of the student records is super-flexible, so it can be used as a way to make notes on a file. For example, students’ record can have custom fields areas for writing out necessary accommodations, or leaving notes for other teachers about how to work with a student
  • Private Messaging – As a communication system for special education teams, Private Messaging is a very powerful tool. It’s easy to have just one thread for each student’s group of support people. Parents and students can also be included in their special education threads, if needed.

Grading

Because QuickSchools is so flexible, there are quite a few different ways of going about managing grades are reports for special education classes. Here’s some information on the different features in the system that might be helpful.Read More »

The Hudson College Report Card Template

As part of our initiative to share the awesome custom report cards at QuickSchools, today we’re sharing a private template. If it looks good to you, feel free to chat in – we’d love to enable it for you and help you set it up just the way you’d like!


At Hudson College in Toronto, ON students receive report cards that give detailed grades on both behavior and academics. It’s a very specific template, so we all worked together to build it with Hudson. When all was finished, Director Jeff Bavington had this to say about the process –

“The ability to customize our reports to suit our school’s personal needs was crucial for us at Hudson. The support team at Quick Schools – especially Azroy and Rick – were tremendously responsive and helpful in designing, testing, and implementing our reports. The result of our new report system is that it’s simultaneously more simple and efficient, yet also much more detailed and personalized for each student – and we’re only getting started! We are very pleased with the results. I highly recommend Quick Schools to any school looking for great features, flexibility, and support for their SIS needs”

Of course, special thanks to Director Bavington and all our friends at Hudson College! It was a pleasure to work Report Cards with you too!

Since it’s such a fantastic and detailed report card, we are all certain that it may be of some help to other schools. Without further ado, here’s a look at a sample Hudson College report card.
