How do I work with services?

Information about the services provided to students can be collected by the school or district administrator. For this information to be accurate, the services and modifications pages need to be filled out in a certain way.

Add a new service

  1. While you are “Working with students”, in the “Forms Menu”, click on “IEP” under Service Plan section.
  2. In the IEP menu click on “Services”.
  3. Click the button labeled “Add Special Education Services”.
  4. A box will appear for your service.

Enter information about the service provided to the student

Whenever possible, select the service from the list of services provided. If you type a service in the “Other” box, the information cannot be collected by your billing person for the purposes of tuition billing. If you need services added to the services menu, contact your SpEd Forms Administrator.

  2. Indicate where the service will be provided by selecting a choice from the “Location” list box.
  3. Use the “Frequency” field to enter the number of times the service will be provided to the student for each period (usually “week”). For example if the student receives the service five times a week, type “5” and select “week”.
  4. Enter the number of direct and indirect minutes per session.
  5. Select the “Anticipated Duration” for which the student will receive the service.
  6. Enter the “Start Date” and “End Date”.
  7. Click the “Save” button.

You should indicate the person providing the service. This information can be collected by the special education director and business manager to assist with teacher workload analysis and tuition billing.

To indicate the provider of the service

  1. Click on the “Provider” link.
  2. Then in the popup window, click “Select” next to the provider's name (names will appear in alphabetical order by last name).
