OSSE, in its role as the State Education Agency (SEA), has the responsibility to clarify expectations, provide necessary guidance, and establish a standardized format and timeframe for reporting student, school and financial information required to support compliant practices at the LEA level.
A copy of the proposal can be found here*.
