The Special Education Web Portal is available to school district personnel only and is accessed by secure login at the following site: https://apps4.dpi.wi.gov/seportal. The login ID and password for the Portal is unique to this application. The Portal is not yet using the WAMS ID.
Directors of Special Education and their designees are assigned access by contacting the Special Education team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608-266-1781. These users have access to all applications and reports. In addition, they create and maintain accounts for district users and which applications those users can access.
Be sure to contact the team when a Director of Special Education leaves or starts at the district, so that access can be updated as required.
Other district users are assigned access by contacting the Director of Special Education in the district. Each user must have a unique account assigned; sharing of accounts is not allowed.
See the Special Education Leadership Directory for a list of directors: https://apps4.dpi.wi.gov/speddir. This list is not generated from the Portal but is a close approximation of who you should contact in your district to request access.
