IEP Manager Form Viewing Modes
To edit the forms in the IEP Manager the user has the option of either the PDF or HTML mode located at the bottom of the forms.  The default and preferred mode is PDF as it will
provide a more accurate view of the form but requires some configuration to the browser; the other HTML mode will work in any environment but is not as user friendly.

  • IEP Manager options to edit forms: PDF mode vs. HTML mode.
  • Chrome 45+ no longer supports Adobe PDF plugin in the IEP Manager. Click on the link System Requirements for more information on how to configure your browser for the IEP Manager.

IMPORTANT for CASEMIS Clerks/Special Ed. Secretaries in SIRAS

  • District CASEMIS staff can enter progress reporting dates, vacations and ESY dates for next school year.  Go to the Tools menu and select SELPA/District/School Admin.
    • Enter Progress Report dates for the 2016-17 school year and even the 2017-18 school year, if known. Enter the regular report card dates for the district.  If there are different reporting periods within your district, narrow your focus using the school house icon to the specific school with different dates. Utilize the “Description” column to name each reporting period (quarter, trimester, semester, P1, Progress Report 1, etc.).
    • Enter all vacation days.  For holidays, enter the first and last calendar day that students do not attend school.  SIRAS will know if the vacation is in excess of 5 school days and apply those days to the assessment completion/countdown feature in the IEP manager.
    • A new choice in the dropdown is Extended School Year.  You can now input the start and end dates for ESY.
    • Disregard the option to enter the CAASPP Test Period.  We will be doing something different to advance testing options based on grade level next year.
  • The rollover and grade advance occurred on August 1.  For students who have open meetings that will be continued, you will need to go to that student’s IEP in development and manually advance the grade if appropriate.  To avoid/reduce the need to do this in the future, complete meetings and finalize them before you leave for the summer.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

Medi-Cal Billing Option:

Siras Systems, Inc. is excited to announce a partnership with Leader Services, a national company that provides technology and data processing solutions to over 1,000 Local Education Agencies (LEA's). Leader has provided Medicaid billing services to LEA's since 1992 and has assisted with generating more than $1.8 billion in reimbursements. Together, we will provide an improved service within IEP management and Medi-Cal billing for our mutual clients.  With consent in the near future, we will offer districts the ability of integrating SIRAS IEP data with Leader's Medi-Cal billing software via a scheduled nightly data export option between the two systems. We offer this as a solution to help save valuable staff time on data upkeep while providing LEA's a streamlined IEP management and Medi-Cal billing process with the goal of maximizing reimbursement potential.

If you have any questions, please contact Steve Ormbrek - steve@sirassystems.com
