SPSM-KS_21.6.1.0 Release Notes

Date of Release: July 6, 2021



Release Note

SPEDSM-43441Behavior Intervention Plan added to IEP

Added a section for Behavior Intervention Plan to the IEP. The Functional Behavior Assessment will still be a standalone document but only have the Summary Report section. On the Considerations section, when "Yes" is selected for the question, “Does the student’s behavior impede the student’s learning or that of others?” there will be checkboxes for Behavior Intervention Plan and Goals/Accommodations. When Behavior Intervention Plan is selected, the Behavior Intervention Plan will be added as a section of the IEP. Additionally, if the Behavior Intervention Plan box is selected on the Considerations section and the IEP is finalized, then the Behavior Intervention Plan checkbox in the Student Profile, and then Special Education Information will be selected. 

SPEDSM-39643Copying section on new IEP document

Fixed an issue with the IEP when the “Copy information from another (previous) document” option is selected. For example, if the user selected only the Goals and Objectives/Benchmarks section to copy from a previous document, the Progress Report would populate with the previous IEP goals and objectives data. Information from the Goals and Objectives/Benchmarks section will no longer appear in the Progress Report when creating a new IEP.

SPEDSM-41409DisabilityCatgories keyword table

Changed Gifted and Talented to Gifted in the DisabilityCatgories keyword table.

SPEDSM-40847Excusal From Attendance at IEP Meeting

Updated the Excusal From Attendance at IEP Meeting document so that only the "I consent/do not consent" option appears. Previously, there were options for "Agree/Disagree" and "Consent/Do not consent" which was confusing.

SPEDSM-45004Globals - Goal Wizard

Fixed an issue with the Goal Wizard so that the Curriculum will appear, even if the Goal Wizard is not enabled. Previously, when the Goal Wizard was not enabled, the Curriculum didn’t appear on the Goals and Objectives/Benchmarks section of the IEP.

SPEDSM-42882IEP: IEP Team ESY Decision-Making and Documentation section

Updated the IEP Team ESY Decision-Making and Documentation section of the IEP. When Yes is selected for the ESY (Extended School Year) checkbox, it will mark the ESY field in the Special Education Information profile once the IEP is finalized.

SPEDSM-41832IEP: IEP Team Meeting Participants

Updated the IEP Team Meeting Participants section of the IEP so that the General Education Teacher and Attending checkbox for the General Education Teacher fields are not required.

SPEDSM-32835IEP at a Glance

Updated the IEP at a Glance section on the IEP. If the "Suppress Printing this area" is selected for Service Chart/State Reporting, the data will no longer flow to the Service Delivery area on the IEP at a Glance. Additionally, the Service Delivery area will not appear in the printed IEP at a Glance when "Suppress Printing this area" is selected.

SPEDSM-33631Manifestation Determination Review

Updated the Manifestation Determination Review document and a non-lookup option is now available in the "Team Members Present" and "Dissenting Opinion Team Members" areas.
