Since the year 1992, Faucette Micro Systems, Inc. (FMS) has been programming our SELPA System software. It is used by California Special Education Local Planning Areas (SELPAs) and special education clients to provide quality programs useful in tracking special education students.
In the year 2003, we expanded our horizons by partnering with East Valley SELPA to develop a user-friendly web-based Individualized Education Program (IEP) system. We continued to broaden our scope by developing Web504® in 2012 in cooperation with Oakland Unified School District's Health Services office to generate electronic Section 504 Plans. In 2017, aided by Yucaipa-Calimesa Joint Unified School District, we added to our product line WebSST, which tracks students who are in general education but are receiving targeted support.
Along the way, we have developed numerous utilities and programs that support our main programs. These include the Replication Module, Foster Youth program, Block Enrollment reports, Low Incidence program, and more.
Since its founding, FMS has continued to serve various customers with dedication and commitment. Data is becoming more and more important. Our job to help you organize that data.
The mission here at FMS to turn our passion for programming into the power to produce the best products. Our work has a steady aim at leveraging computer technology into an always-improving asset, decreasing our clients' work load and increasing ease. With our products and services, clients have the ability to soar to new heights knowing they are backed by first-rate performance and commitment.
We want our clients to know they have a reliable foundation beneath the work they do. This gives them the opportunity to focus on achieving success rather than focusing on the problems that come up along the way. We push ourselves to the limits of our expertise in an effort to deliver the highest quality service possible.
