The Illinois State Board of Education has developed a comprehensive web-based Special Education database system called I-Star (IEP Special Education Tracking And Reporting). 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. 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 is available to school districts, free of charge. Harrisburg Project offers free support and training for the I-Star system.
