Each Local Educational Agency (LEA) is required to submit Special Education data for 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). The majority of these data are submitted during two data collection periods.
