    My district has been using "Excent" for years, but are moving to "easyIEP". What are some other programs out there for IEP writing?

    Our entire state has switched to Enrich now, because the state pays for it. We have a lot of students that move around during the year and they thought it would be better for every district to use the same format for their IEPs. We used to use excent, which I actually liked better. In a previous district, we used SEAS.

    My last and currents districts use eSped. I remember it being pretty useful when I was a SPED teacher.

    My state has a system that almost everyone uses in this state. That way when a student moves, the current IEP can be sent electronically. We also can use the IEP until the next time for an IEP. Many times we do have an IEP meeting and write a new one. If a student comes from a different state, then we have to enter them/have a new IEP shortly after they arrive.

    We have a state system. TIE Net. It's so terrible beyond your wildest imagination.

    We use IEP direct. It's pretty simple to use. If we get a new student from a district in our state it is usually just a matter of updating the IEP because I think most use the same system.

    We use IEPOnline. It has its issues, but it's better than what we had before (I think it was called IEP writer).

    We use Progress Book by Software Answers. I think it is mainly an Ohio program. Many districts around me use it. It is a suite that has grade book, special services, student information, and one other component. It works for me. I don't remember our first online program, and I begin writing IEPs on carbon paper forms in triplicate, so typing is a huge advantage.

    I think one of my IEPs from the early 90s is on carbon paper (I think it is actually my IFSP).

    The others are typewritten, then typed in starting around 2000 or so.

    What was worse about carbon was the goals/services pages were on 11x17 paper. Very cumbersome and always creased and smudged if you took it anywhere because you had to fold it. My first year of teaching was 2000-2001. I even tried using a typewriter, but that was hard with formatting. I love that it is all online. Our program is web based so I can work on reports anywhere I have internet.
