Searching for students with IEP's

Is there a way to search for students that are on an IEP?

How do you have these students identified in PS? We use the Alert_Other for staff to include IEP at a glance information for teachers and admin. Then we are able to search for those students and pull a report of the text included in the alert box. 


We are also using Special Program Enrollments for our special services identified students.

In Georgia, we search for 'not blank' on the field that has an entry if the student is SPED, thus:




Try going to your "State Reporting Help" section using the "?" at the top of PowerSchool. On the left there should be a section called "Data Dictionary". Find your field category on the left, in my case it's "S_MI_STU_GC_X", and use ctrl + F to do a search for "flag". You should be able to find the exact field used to indicate IEP. Then you can just add =1 to find your students with the flag.
