13 Special Populations Coordinator Management System The SPC Management System was originally developed to assist the Special Population Coordinators in completing the electronic Career Development Plan-Plus (CDP+). Completion of the CDP+ fulfills local, state, and federal accountability requirements for students identified as Special Populations.
14 Special Populations Coordinator Management System In addition to meeting the need for documentation for required reports the program is now used to assure more readily available information for teachers and SPCs. The available information allows teachers and SPCs to work together for targeted, individualized services for students.
