I'd definitely recommend this tool to others as the overall functionality is very usable and useful. Document uploading, content management is taken care very well. As it is an open source tool, it comes without cost which is the best part but it would require some added security for larger companies to adopt. Security and access based control are one of the most important features.

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

Nuxeo

  • The platform has Lots of option to protect assets, review and share with the required people.
  • It provides a seamless transition from SharePoint which is extremely useful for our business as we have tons of data stored on SharePoint.
  • It is a powerful tool, especially for searching - since the indexing is super fast unlike other platforms.

  • 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

Nuxeo

  • During a software update - if one issue is fixed, others are broken. Proper regression testing is required.
  • Customization is bit difficult in as documentation is not as powerful. This area could be improved.
  • It has to enable bulk uploading of documents, it requires Nuxeo support assistance for this feature and this is a paid service.

  • 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.

Alternatives Considered

Nuxeo

Nuxeo stacks up very well against its alternatives. It has a very good UI, migration strategy from SharePoint and documentation skills. Content management real time helps a lot. It is an ECM with DAM. Only disadvantage is that it requires a lot of support from Nuxeo to use certain features. It uses modern frameworks and technologies so that developers find their way around quickly.

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

Nuxeo

  • It is an open source tool hence proves to be an excellent ROI. Content and document management are managed very well in the tool.
  • Security and role based features play a major role. Migration is a breeze. Hence it is a very positive impact.
  • Nuxeo has very rich feature set but its complex enough and so developers needs considerable time to ramp up on development on this platform .

  • 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.
