The State System is coordinated by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, and each institution is governed by a board of regents. The State Regents prescribe academic standards of higher education, determine functions and courses of study at state colleges and universities, grant degrees, recommend to the state Legislature budget allocations for each college and university, and recommend proposed fees within limits set by the Legislature. The State Regents also manage 23 scholarships and special programs. In addition, in cooperation with the Office of State Finance, the State Regents operate OneNet, the state's information and telecommunications network for education and government. The Regents also operate the Oklahoma Guaranteed Student Loan Program, which guarantees loans made to students by the private sector. While the State Regents are the coordinating board of control for all institutions in the State System of Higher Education, governing boards of regents and boards of trustees are responsible for the operation and management of each State System institution or higher education program.

Head Start with the support of the necessary special education professionals Head Start programsby calling the oklahoma Association of Community Action agencies at 405 http://okvoices.org/headstart.html
Extractions: Head Start is the federal program for preschool children from low-income families operated by local non-profit organizations such as Community Action Agencies. Head Start has a mandate to recruit and enroll income-eligible children and children with disabilities who are most in need of services, and to coordinate with the local education agencies and other groups to benefit children with disabilities and their families. With a goal of helping all children succeed, Head Start provides children with individualized activities that help them grow mentally, socially, emotionally, and physically. A key feature of the program is to educate all children in an integrated, developmentally appropriate program. Of Head Start's many benefits to children with disabilities, the ability to provide special services in a setting with other age-appropriate peers may be the greatest asset. Care is taken not to isolate children with disabilities in the Head Start program. Head Start's main strength is in being able to assist public schools in implementing an Individualized Education Program (IEP) in a setting with other preschool-aged children. Head Start staff have the knowledge and training to implement the IEP in the least restrictive environment, with the support of the necessary special education professionals. The program strives to enhance the child's mental processes and skills with particular attention to conceptual and communications skills. There is an emphasis on encouraging a sense of dignity and self-worth within the child and the family.
