Dear Bluegrass Educator,
That is the "beauty" of this SETS system. As soon as the
first piece of information is logged into the system the Division
of Exceptional Children receive the same information and have
access to everything in the online due process folder! Each month
your little name as case manager pops up at DEC with red markers by
the areas in which you are out of compliance. Each month your
special ed. director is notified of the compliance of the folders
in her system by case manager name, she in turn notifies your
principal and you. Lovely isn't it?
I have little red marks all over the place as in attempting to
utilize the program it was discovered that there were numerous
technological problems with this program thus preventing me from
completing any of the due process online. Now, one also cannot go
back and revert to the old reliable paper method once this online
process has been started in order to irradicate the errors.
Needless to say our STI/SETS was not up and running today.
I'm in elementary.
