Stepwell, a collaborative web-based platform, is now available to school districts to improve special education outcomes. The platform provides visibility into special education compliance and monitoring for results, helping education leaders plan and implement systemic changes to achieve better outcomes for students with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) and ensure compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
According to a 2021 report from the U.S. Department of Education, more than half of the states in the U.S. and the District of Columbia did not meet the requirements or purposes of IDEA for Part B, which ensures free appropriate public education for students with disabilities. Stepwell aims to address this issue by streamlining relevant information and workflows, allowing education leaders to focus on system-wide improvement and overcome cumbersome tasks associated with compliance management.
Stepwell offers various benefits, including insights into relevant student data, improved communication between educators, embedded best practices for root cause analysis, and decreased manual reporting and data collection. By providing a collaborative environment where educators can view important tasks, reports, updates, and deadlines, Stepwell enhances visibility into IDEA Parts B and C monitoring and accountability across school districts.
