Individualized Educational Plans (IEPs) and 504 Plans offer every student the opportunity to achieve his or her full potential. Meaningful IEP/504 plans require dynamic, ongoing collaboration, tracking, and accountability for each student in each class. Unfortunately, this does not currently happen, which is why parents, teachers, and administrators need Trokt.

Trokt empowers collaborative partnerships to help students succeed.

With Trokt, parents, advocates, or specialists can start each IEP/504 from a flexible template, and then:

  1. Create a new block for each area of difficulty. Separating each area of difficulty into its own block allows for both the efficient use of specialists and transparency across all aspects of the student’s IEP/504.
  2. Family, instructor, and administration commitment to the IEP/504 is demonstrated by each party clicking “Agree” regarding every plan for each area of difficulty.
  3. The baseline IEP/504 is used to create a “living replica” in Trokt where supporting documents can be added, challenges can be discussed, and updates for the annual review can be evaluated by everyone on their own time.

Family, instructors, and administrators can then easily collect actionable data, allowing:

  1. Any involved party to read any aspect of an IEP/504 on their smartphone via the Trokt Tracker.
  2. Data on performance, compliance, or support to be quickly entered from anywhere at any time.
  3. Each entry to open a new file where the data can be clarified, additional documents can be attached, and discussions can take place regarding the particular issue being addressed. The result of these mediated solutions could possibly be directly inserted during the next review – meaning no lessons lost between the time they were learned and the time they were recorded.

As a parent, you only have one chance to give your children every opportunity to succeed in life. But you are not in it alone. Your teachers want to provide the classroom your child needs, your specialists want to see every child succeed, and the school administrators want to see every class reach its potential. The current IEP/504 process does not serve those in need, because the tools being used take too much time, allows for too many errors, and takes too many people away from what they want to do:

Ensure everyone is heard. Ensure every student succeeds. 

Give your community a voice. Bring Trokt into your community so that your child – and every child from here on out – has an opportunity to receive the educational support that is best for them.
