Senior Education Specialist
“The Lumen SPEDEX system’s flexibility, customization, and ability to mirror the State of CT formats are what sold us. They provided us with constant oversight, guidance, and management throughout the process and made themselves available for all of our needs – and we were needy! The more our staff become familiar with SPEDEX the more the district is reaping the benefits; shared information between schools, consistency, reduction of redundant tasks just to name a few. We are very impressed with this tool.”
