Special-Ed Getting New Computer System, Staff

The District school system plans to spend $4.3 million on a computer system designed to keep track of special education students' academic life, replacing several systems plagued by bad data and an inability to communicate with one another.

During a news conference yesterday, D.C. State Superintendent of Education Deborah A. Gist also announced that the city plans to hire 30 full-time case management workers, at a cost of $3.2 million, so that students referred to special education can receive services more quickly.

The initiatives are "a way in which we intend to serve students more effectively," Gist said. She was joined by Mayor Adrian M. Fenty at a news conference in the lobby of her office at Judiciary Square. The Washington Post
