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.
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.
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 »
