Implementation of the IEP PlaNETTM System includes a
staff development and training program which fully integrates software
training with Vision Management Consulting's IEP philosophy, resulting
in efficient, compliant, and effective IEPs. Training in the use of the
IEP PlaNETTM System software includes how to enter student
biographical data, create and update IEPs for students, and generate
reports. An overview of the IEP PlaNETTM System software
user's manual is also undertaken.
In addition to ensuring the compliance of the IEP PlaNETTM
System software with current IDEA and State Administrative Code
requirements through regularly issued updates, Vision Management
Consulting provides staff development workshops addressing relevant
issues in special education.
System Implementation and Training Models
The IEP PlaNETTM System is implemented in two ways:
- Coding sheets are filled out by special education professionals
and submitted to a central location where the information is entered
by data entry personnel.
- Special education professionals directly enter student's IEP
information into the IEP PlaNETTM System software on
laptop or desktop computers.
Depending on the needs, size, and preferences of the school
district, Vision Management Consulting recommends two different
1. The Direct Staff Training Model:
In this training model, the focus is on the direct training of
special education staff. Vision Management Consulting trains each staff
member on how to input and retrieve information from the IEP
PlaNETTM System software.
2. The Training-the-Trainer Model
Vision Management Consulting uses its "Training-the-Trainer"
workshop to familiarize in-district staff members with the IEP
PlaNETTM System software and the methods used to train software
users, who then provide direct training to the remaining staff. Vision
Management Consulting is still available to do workshops covering IEP
development, due process issues, etc.
