Important Information:

Count Sheets:

  • Teaching Staff: Please create and review your count sheets
  • Do Not create multiple count sheets
  • Notify Diane Thomas of any errors on your count sheet, so that they can be corrected

IEP Status:

  • Please do not set an IEP status from Draft to Review until it is final (all signatures are uploaded and it is complete - all sections)

  • Please respect others' time (whenever possible, keep it short, sweet, and to the point)
  • Stay Positive!


  • On Special Factors Page: Communication Needs
  • Check YES if student receives speech services or support


  • Please include the date of the meeting on the subject line of your invitations in order to get the processed sooner
  • Do Not Delete the student name or UIC number from the subject line


  • When REEDS are complete, you do not need to notify anyone. It gets bundled in, and the Invitation notification serves the purpose to then alert ESA that the REED is complete as well. (Think of this as one less step you have to do!)
