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 prefered 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.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:

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.

OCTOBER 2015:  form development history

 

September 2015:  PRINTING - removing browser's header and footer

When printing out Student Lists, Progress Reports, or other SIRAS reports generated from the web page (not PDF forms) and you want to remove the title and footer inserted by your browser, go to the Menu bar for your browser, go under "File" to "Page Setup" then change all of the settings for your header and footer to "Empty".  Otherwise the things listed such as Title, page numbers, dates, and URL will print on your report which is usually not desireable.  This only needs to be done once and your browser will remember.

To turn off your Popup Blockers for all sites, open your browser and look under Tools on the menu bar and scroll down to Pop-up Blocker, then select "Turn off Pop-up Blocker".
