Department: Special Education
Location: Waterboro, ME
Interviewee: Nora Lantagne, Assistant Director of Special Education
Fortunately, the Special Education department already had most of the technology they needed for electronic IEP completion. Still, they were missing the final piece— A quick and easy way to collect eSignatures on paperwork from busy parents anywhere, anytime.
The district looked into both Adobe and DocuSign before their IT staff introduced them to BlueInk.
Englewood noticed an issue with how Adobe and DocuSign required signatures: those signing the document had to do so in a particular order, which was not feasible for the department’s workflow.
They discovered that BlueInk’s flexibility allows for multiple people to sign at various times. Plus, the platform sends finished documents to all parties upon completion. Instantly.
The Special Education department learned that parents could receive documents via text and sign directly from their mobile devices. It’s the most convenient feature for a new normal, and BlueInk’s Suite allowed Englewood to adapt right away.
To top it all off, they provided the school district with Big Savings over competitors—
The bottom line: BlueInk gave Englewood peace of mind that they could afford to be virtual as long as they needed to.
The school district no longer has to worry about misplaced signatures or delayed procurement of IEP forms.
BlueInk’s features show parents and teachers that Englewood respects their time. And their pricing shows school districts that paperless technology is within reach for Special Education departments everywhere.
