EverFi is a cost-effective way to push out training to staff. Some of the pieces of training are much more updated than others. If using the tool, review the training in-depth before sending them out to make sure that they are appropriate for your team.

PowerSchool Unified Classroom Special Programs

PowerSchool Special Education is well suited in one specific area: special education in elementary, middle and high schools. It works here due to the nature of the platform, which focuses on meeting the needs of students with all disabilities. The software offers information on specific cases, students, as well as Academics. This supports the mission of supporting all students and making it easier for educators, parents, and administration to be more heavily involved in tracking, monitoring and supporting students. When using PowerSchool Special Education, it simplifies the IEP process. Collaboration is one of the best abilities the software provides. There is a need to track program eligibility, including 501 accommodations and Title 1, and in a school with such a large population, the functionality that this software offers to users is important.

Pros

EverFi

  • EverFi's online learning modules and coalition resources provide cutting-edge prevention education to collegiate members.
  • The annual Campus Prevention Network Summit has become a highly anticipated professional development opportunity for individuals working in higher education prevention. Not only does the experience provide exceptional education programs, but it also affords those attending the opportunity to interact and connect with prevention experts from around the country.
  • EverFi's Prevention Diagnostic Tools allows for benchmarking of educational programs, resources, and strategic initiatives. The feedback provided allows for campuses and organizations to critically assess how effective current efforts measure up in relation to evidence-based approaches.

PowerSchool Unified Classroom Special Programs

  • It provides all the documents necessary for supporting federal and state laws in regards to the special education program.
  • Extremely effective in helping to meet reporting standards for students. Teachers that fall behind on deadlines or timelines are given reminders and provided with processes to monitor progress and reporting.
  • Case management is easy, which leads to 100% compliance. This is important because the best strength is that this platform helps to increase funding by meeting all requirements of the Fed and State.
  • An additional strength is the collaborative potential it offers. The platform offers student portals to let staff access all resources on demand.

Cons

EverFi

  • The administration portal felt clunky with an outdated user interface.
  • Assigning courses could be tedious, it was hard to know what notifications employees were receiving.

  • In terms of improvement, the interface is extremely ugly and simple in design, color and icon design. The platform needs to have a much more interactive and appealing interface so that use is more comfortable.
  • For parents, their side of the platform has a lot of options. That needs to be simplified. I think less and more drop downs within the key menus would help.
  • The disability codes are very lengthy. Perhaps there are easier or faster ways to access subsections to select.

Customer and client services vary depending on account representatives. Frequent changes in staff assigned as our client manager has not allowed for much personalized service.

Alternatives Considered

EverFi

We need EverFi in addition to Lessonly because EverFi had a robust compliance catalog and we did not have time internally to create compliance materials on Lessonly. EverFi filled an important catalog-based need for us, while Lessonly allowed us to author short courses for our employees.

PowerSchool Unified Classroom Special Programs

There is no other software on the market that is specifically focused on improving the support of special education programs. PowerSchool Special Education system has a similar interface and structure that Moodle Rooms offer; however, Moodle Rooms is for content management and student management. PowerSchool Special Education is not related to course curriculum management, it is primarily focused on special education programs. Managing special education programs can be very difficult and stressful. It is impossible to successfully comply and healthily support a special education program without tools such as PowerSchool Special Education. Even more important than what other software does do for schools and educators, this platform makes it more convenient for families. Electronic forms and parent portals make processes easier.

Return on Investment

EverFi

  • Evidence-based learning with testing, tracking, and completion data for each participant/chapter.
  • Behavior and environmental data tracked over multiple years allows for tracking of trends
  • Insurance carrier provides discounts on risk management coverage for use.

  • There is also a positive impact on ROI for the school. Utilizing this software provides the school with the ability to increase the potential it receives in Title 1 funding. Title 1 funding is a major source of funding for inner-city schools in particular.
  • Normally, the IEP and tracking process is lengthy, filled with paper, and often takes more time than necessary. Utilizing this software speeds up the process and provides clear requirements to be met, which reduces the number of questions and confusing meetings or papers left in teacher mailboxes.
  • I have not experienced a negative return on investment with the software, because, without it, the paper trail would be too lengthy and the process would be much more convoluted, with long meetings, long sheets of paperwork, and missed deadlines due to a lack of clear collaboration.
