Each Local Educational Agency (LEA) is required to submit Special Education data on students aged 3 through 21 years of age who receive special education and related services through an Individualized Education Program (IEP) to the Oklahoma State Department of Education-Special Education Services (OSDE-SES).
Part B Data
- Child Count - A count of students who are enrolled in the LEA and on an IEP as of October 1 of the fiscal year. In addition to federal reporting, this count is used in allocating State Aid for Special Education.
- Data/Annual Performance Report (APR)- Data regarding full-time equivalents (personnel), discipline, exits (e.g. graduation and dropouts), environments, as well as other important information about students with disabilities. The information collected covers the fiscal year (July 1st through June 30th).
This Data Handbook serves as guidance and support to local education agencies (LEAs) that provide special education and related services to identified students with disabilities under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) of 2004. This document serves as an overview for LEA personnel new to the data requirements of IDEA as well as a reference for more experienced Special Education Directors and Managers.
State Performance Plan (SPP)
IDEA 2004 required the OSDE-SES to establish a performance plan that evaluates the state’s efforts to implement the requirements and purposes of Part B of IDEA 2004.
The plan was to be completed by December 2, 2005 and include:
- A six-year plan for an evaluation of the state's efforts to implement the requirements and purposes of Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to improve educational services for students with disabilities;
- Targets for each of the 20 indicators identified by the OSEP;
- Targets that are specific, measurable, achievable (yet challenging), relevant, and timely;
- Specific plans for improving performance on each indicator;
- A yearly report, to OSEP and to the public, reported in an Annual Performance Report (APR) of an indicator's progress and slippage; and
- An annual report to LEAs of their performance on the targets identified in the SPP.
