Right now under the I-plan system teachers are periodically losing student information put into the system. The new SEMS Tracker software will allow the district to better manage the information especially for Special Education students. The finance committee approved the $120,000 in stimulus funds for the software that many other district are already using.
"You want to keep them on track as far as academically. As soon as we know that they are in the system, want to get to them to their parents and everyone to let them know that we want to continue their education as quickly as possible," said Zora Allen, Dougherty County School System.
The district will have to come up with another $60,000 to scan the old paperwork into the new system.
