California Department of Education, Special Education Division’s special project, California Services for Technical Assistance and Training (CalSTAT) is funded through a contract with the Napa County Office of Education. CalSTAT is partially funded from federal funds, State Grants #H027A080116A. Additional federal funds are provided from a federal competitively awarded State Personnel Development Grant to California (#H323A070011) provided from the U.S. Department of Education Part D of the Individuals with Disabilities Education act (IDEA). Opinions expressed herein are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the position of the U. S. Department of Education.
We welcome your interest in adopting TED (California’s Training Events Database) into the life of your educational organization! TED is offered to you free by CalSTAT, a special project of the California Department of Education, Special Education Division, located at the Napa County Office of Education.
To support qualifying CA state LEAs in adopting TED, there are a limited number of $600 stipends available this fiscal year, on a first come first served basis. Email or call Marin Brown email@example.com or 707-481-9139 to inquire about the availability of stipends, and to have her reserve one while you complete the Adoption process.
Page 2 provides a worksheet for deciding which TED configuration (single computer, server, or hosted on a network) will work best for your organization, to help determine the Filemaker licenses that will need to be purchased for running TED.
Pages 4-10 provide the stipend instructions and forms, including an MOU, License Agreement, Invoice, and W9. Print and complete these forms. Send in the originals.
Use your TED Configuration sheet and the details on page 3 to determine which Filemaker licenses to purchase. Place your order.
Get out the popcorn and have your staff watch two movies and fill out the 3 Things to Do Before TED Arrives worksheet on pages 11-12. Meet as a group and finalize your Funding Sources, Topics, and Roles choices, so you’re ready to customize and optimize TED for your organization. Movies found here: calstat.org/preparingforted.html.
Here are the instructions for installing TED: calstat.org/settingupTED.html Have your Main TED User watch the second movie on this page to guide the initial setup of TED.
Have all TED users watch this series of brief training movies for learning the features of TED: calstat.org/learningTED.html That’s it. You're ready to use TED… Enjoy!
TED operates in FileMaker Pro 11, and can be accessed on either Mac or Windows computers. FileMaker Pro is a desktop application that is relatively inexpensive, and can be purchased with an educational discount.
You choose whether TED will run on a Single Computer, a Server, or a Network at your site. Here’s how it works.
Jot down in the table who in your organization will be accessing TED for these kinds of tasks. For some organizations that will be one person, for others several people. This will let you know how many & which Filemaker Pro 11 workstation licenses to purchase.
|Name||Role||Phone||Mac or PC|
|Server or Networked||Name of Your IT Person||Phone|
Refer to your TED Configuration Options sheet for how many and which types of licenses will need to be purchased (Mac or PC, Server version or not).
Currently Filemaker 12 has come out, but we are using Filemaker 11 for TED, so you will need to purchase Filemaker 12 plus an inexpensive downgrade license to get Filemaker 11.
You may want to contact Eric Williams at CDW (866-339-7929), who is one of the educational sales reps. If he is not your district's/organization’s CDW representative, he can pass you along to the right person.
CDW has provided a general quote (below) at the educational prices, so you can have an idea of what you'll need to order and budget for the software. But, your sales rep can determine whether additional discounts might apply due to other Filemaker licenses already purchased by your district or site.
There are a few things to be aware of:
You can purchase Filemaker from other sources, just be sure to ask for the educational discount. The information above is simply provided to help you to be clear on what you’ll need to purchase.
We hope this provides what you need for creating your purchase order and obtaining Filemaker!

|TED Stipend: Selected to implement use of the non-web-based TED software for tracking training participation and feedback.|
List here the Names of the Funding Sources, Grants, or Programs you want to add into TED. Later, when you enter events into TED, you’ll select a Funding Source for each event, which will enable you to generate Summary Reports specific to these Funding Sources over time. You can enter as many Funding Sources as you wish into TED, as you go along.
You can list up to 13 Topic Areas in TED. We’ve listed TED’s default Topic Areas below. Choose only those default Topic Areas relevant to your organization’s work, then add in customized Topic Areas to cover the rest of your work. Each time you set up a new event in TED, you’ll enter which Topic Areas it covers. Then, in the Summary Reports, you’ll be able to see what events were offered, and who from which organizations has attended trainings, in which Topic Areas. Once you set your list of 13 Topic Areas, you need to keep them the same from then on. Try to leave a couple of open spots for topics that emerge over time.
|13 Topics||Your Site's Topic Areas (blank)||TED's Default Topic Areas|
|1)||[...]||Alternate Dispute Resolution|
|4)||[...]||Family and Professional Partnerships|
|5)||[...]||Individuals with Disabilities Education Act|
|6)||[...]||Least Restrictive Environment|
|8)||[...]||Other Core Standards|
|9)||[...]||Positive Behavioral Supports/Safe Schools|
|11)||[...]||Special and General Ed Collaboration|
You can list up to 9 Primary Roles in TED. We’ve listed TED’s 7 default Primary Roles below. There is room for you to add in two other Primary Roles that might be important in your work. Each time you set up a new person in TED, you’ll enter their role. Then, in the Summary Reports, you’ll be able to see the Roles of those you are serving. You’ll also be able to send out emails to those from specific roles in promoting your events.
Another group of Roles in TED are those of Other Certificated Professionals (OCP). You can add in as many OCP Roles as you wish. They will all be summarized in the reports under the role of Other Certificated Professionals. But, you will still be able to select and send emails to people from these individual OCP roles as needed.
|9 Primary Roles||Your Site's Primary Roles (blank)||TED's Default Primary Roles|
|1)||[...]||Teacher – Special Education|
|2)||[...]||Teacher – General Education|
|3)||[...]||Administrator – Special Education|
|4)||[...]||Administrator – General Education|
|6)||[...]||Parent / Family|
|Unlimited||Your Site's OCP Roles (blank)||TED's Default OCP Roles|
|1)||[...]||Speech and Language Pathologist|
|9)||[...]||open, as many as you wish|
Before actively using TED, it’s important to make these decisions. Then enter your Topics and Roles under TED’s Administration Menu – View/Edit Profile section. They’ll show up in Topics and Roles drop-‐down menus in TED. Add your Funding Sources directly into the main TED window Funding Source drop-‐down menu as you need them.
