special education program profiles
Special Education Program Profiles
  • Identify all current and proposed programs operated by the school district or operated within school district's buildings.
  • A program can be thought of as a “teaching position”. Your program profile outlines the various positions you have at your district that provide Special Education services. Each program is a position. Within each program, a position may have 1 or more “segments”. A segment equates to an FTE and the total of all segments cannot be more than 1 FTE.
  • Begin by clicking the “+ Program” button to add a new program. Then, click the “+ New Segment” button to add the specifics for that program. Enter the building location, grade and type, the support and service type, the low and high age, the caseload and the FTE. Click the “Submit” button. You will return to the Create Program page. (NOTE: your program is not yet saved). If additional segments need to be added, repeat the process by clicking the “+ New Segment” button again and completing the information.
