Annual Report of Children in Local Institutions

In Oklahoma, every school district is required to report two distinct October caseload counts of children or youth for whom the LEA provides an education and reside in eligible local institutions. (If a district has no institutions, a report of a zero caseload will be reported.)

Counts are conducted beginning on October 1 and ending October 30, every year. For this reason, this data collection is often called "The October Count." The children and youth counted must be aged 5 through 17 and live in an eligible institution for at least one night in October. Institutions keep  a daily record of the number of overnight residents. The count for the day with the greatest number of overnight residents - the high-water mark - for the month of October is reported.

Contracted Facility Requirements

Each correctional facility entering into an agreement with a LEA to provide services to children and youth under Title I, Part A, Subpart 2 shall:

  • Where feasible, ensure that educational programs in the correctional facility are coordinated with the student's home school, particularly with respect to a student with an individualized education program under part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Act;
