What is Stepwell?
In the fast paced, high stakes world of special education, intense collaboration around results driven accountability is the key to not only compliance, but to system improvement at every level.
Stepwell’s core is the work of LEA’s in response to specific findings around Parts B and C indicators and general supervision monitoring activities. Stepwell ensures that the work itself is well defined: the right data is available at the right time to inform root cause analysis and provide a firm foundation for improvement planning; best practice is “automatic,” embedded in every step a district takes in response to a finding; a communications engine optimizes requests and notifications to ensure they are directed to the right person and when necessary. Stepwell users collaborate for results, not stopping at merely communicating and coordinating for compliance.
Clearing away obstacles to collaboration between a monitor and an LEA team involve providing a monitor visibility into timely and relevant data, history, individuals engaged in the work, process, and status related to timelines in the event of a finding.
