SER (Special Education Reporting) System
System Manager: Bernetta Sims (email: Bernetta.Sims@la.gov)
The Special Education Reporting (SER) System provides for the establishment of a statewide special education student database from which specified reports from the student record can be generated. The specified reports that are generated enable special education personnel to follow the provision of services to individuals, monitor the timeliness and appropriateness of these services when judged against the sections of the Regulations for Implementation of the Children with Exceptionalities Act, R. S. 17:1941, et seq., implementing ACT 754 and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA, Part B and Part C), which pertain to the individual student; and to ascertain local technical assistance needs through analysis. Special education personnel have the ability to collect, report, and process information on individual students through automated means. Data are captured on an individual from the point of referral to pupil appraisal personnel and from the provision of services until the time of exit from special education. SER was implemented September 1, 2005.
