There are lots of common threads that run through all special ed programs and tops among them is paperwork. One would think that in this time of increasingly electronic communication paperwork demands would go down, but the opposite seems to have occurred. In NYC we're mired in the dark ages and still write IEPs by hand and make copies for all the teachers involved with each student. This is so time-consuming that I often do not get IEPs for the students I teach until January, sometimes later. The city says we'll be switching to an electronic IEPs in a year or so, but I'll believe it when I see it. What, if anything, is your school doing to reduce the paperwork mountain? If not much, what would you like them to do?
