New On Line IEP Tool for ALL Maryland Students
Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Technology in Education, partnered with the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) has developed an important new web site for use with the creation and update of All Maryland State students with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Before long each Maryland school district will begin to follow the new law and start to develop their student IEP’s on line using the special features afforded with this unique on line software. The on line IEP’s will host the data and make it available from any computer with internet access.
The program design appears quite sophisticated and capable of addressing virtually all of the IEP parts under the new federal law. Time will undoubtedly reveal the usual bugs and glitches found in all new programs. We worry that such mistakes could prove doubly disastrous for effected students.
If your child is provided an IEP, we encourage you to explore this new site, take the demo, read the extensive documentation available on line and get ready for special education in the age of the internet!
