The Illinois State Board of Education is developing a comprehensive web-based Special Education database system called I-Star. This database system is a special education data management tool for districts in Illinois. ISBE has tied together all the aspects of Special education reporting into one convenient place. The new web-based IEP is integrated with the new personnel and pupil reporting systems, which are currently being developed. The student demographic data is pulled directly from the Student Information System (SIS). Instant error checking in I-Star will help your district achieve federal and State Performance Plan Indicators compliance. I-Star will be available to school districts, free of charge.
