fastIEP works with your IEP Reporting Software
Already have IEP Reporting Software?
Great! fastIEP works with your existing IEP reporting software to ensure that your data collection is compliant as well as your reports.
Data collection is the most important part of the IEP process, yet none of the most popular “IEP Software” tools handle real-time data collection at all. They are designed to help you write compliant IEPs, and generate compliant reports, but what about the data that goes into those reports? Teachers are left to figure this out themselves, often resorting to post-it notes, paper notebooks or spreadsheets. These methods are far more time consuming, are inaccurate, insecure and impossible to audit or track.
fastIEP fills the gap so that teachers can monitor IEP progress and record data in real time, ensuring compliance with the Endrew F. Supreme Court decision. And administrators can always see in real time the current state of IEP progress monitoring in the district.
How much does fastIEP cost?
fastIEP is priced on a simple per-student/per year pricing model. You only pay for students who are on an active IEP. You do not pay for students who are archived or inactive. You have unlimited accounts for educators, including teachers, administrators, therapists, paraprofessionals, assistants, BCBAs, SLPs, etc.
Wait, my teachers said it was $80
In addition to our fully-featured version, we also offer a “standalone” version of fastIEP directly to teachers for their individual use. This version is priced at $80 per teacher per year.
Note that this version does not include essential district features such as data sharing, data collection by more than one teacher per student, import/export of IEP data to your student information system or IEP reporting tool, administrator dashboards and reporting, and many other features.
We accept purchase orders from schools who wish to purchase standalone licenses for their teachers. Please enter the number of teachers below and click “Show Price”.

Frequently Asked Questions
I don't want to give my teachers "one more thing to do"
It's not "one more thing to do"... teachers are already doing it (progress monitoring), just very inefficiently. You're giving them a tool to do it faster and easier, saving them hundreds of hours!
Teachers love fastIEP so much that over 15,000 teachers have signed up to use fastIEP entirely on their own, independently of their districts. But don't just take our word for it, listen to teachers around the country talk about how much fastIEP has helped them.
We made the fastIEP interface so easy that teachers don't even need any training. We provide PD for those who want it, but even that takes only one hour.
Not only is it easy to learn, it is designed to make teachers' lives easier. fastIEP saves teachers time and hassle—hundreds of hours a year recording progress notes, collating data, making charts, writing reports. Teachers are happier when they spend less time on non-teaching tasks, and are less likely to quit!
We already have IEP software, why do we need fastIEP?
Most “IEP Software” is designed to help you write compliant IEPs and create compliant reports. They typically don’t provide any tools or functionality for real-time progress monitoring. So, where does the data that goes into those reports come from? 23% of teachers don't record progress at all, and try to remember each student's progress on each goal when reports are due. Of those that do record progress, 80% of teachers track progress manually, on paper or in spreadsheets.
Writing compliant IEPs is important, but it’s only the beginning. To be fully compliant with Endrew F., you need to show that you’re monitoring progress and that each student is making meaningful progress in light of their individual circumstances. If a parent asks you to prove where the data in the IEP report came from, can you? With fastIEP, you can.
Can fastIEP integrate with our existing IEP authoring tool and student information system?
Is fastIEP compliant with COPPA, FERPA, HIPAA, etc.?
COPPA deals exclusively with websites that children can access themselves. fastIEP is only accessible by educators and parents. Children never log in to fastIEP, so COPPA is not relevant.
FERPA protects the privacy of student personal details and educational records. With fastIEP, the only personal information we store is the student’s name. We don’t store address, phone number, date of birth, grades, etc. fastIEP’s terms of service strictly prohibit us from sharing, selling or otherwise transferring any data to any third parties. For increased protection, some schools enter only the student’s first name, or a code/nickname or student identifier instead of the full name.
HIPAA is applicable only to health care providers. fastIEP does not provide health care services and therefore is not covered by HIPAA.
What is the pricing model?
Does it work on tablets, Chromebooks, iPads, etc.? Do we have to install anything?
Since fastIEP is web-based, there's nothing to install and it requires no special permissions on your devices. It only needs a standard Internet connection.
Can I use ESSER or title funds to acquire IEP progress monitoring tools?
Our LMS already tracks progress automatically. Why do we need fastIEP?
