Universal Special Education Forms Project

The Ohio Department of Education, Office for Exceptional Children is currently exploring the feasibility of creating a universal system for electronic special education forms in Ohio. The universal system would be designed so that appropriate staff members in districts would have immediate availability of special education records for students transferring in to their districts, while also minimizing the burden of sharing documents to receiving districts when students transfer out. The first phase of this initiative is to determine the cost effectiveness, risks, technical constraints and needs both at the district and state levels related to implementation of a universal special education forms solution.
