About the L2RPT System

L2RPT reports are generated in a Cognos reporting application environment, each hosted independently by RIC/Big 5 Level 1 data centers (or other hosting site) on their own servers. For specific information about how to access your local/regional L2RPT environment, or if you have trouble accessing your reports or need guidance, please contact the appropriate L2RPT support contacts at your Level 1 data center or host site. General instructions for accessing the L2RPT/Cognos server are located below.

IMPORTANT NOTE: User IDs and passwords are required to log in to your L2RPT/Cognos server. These UIDs/passwords are managed by the NYSED Delegated Account System (SEDDAS), which allows designated LEA personnel (public school district, charter and non-public administrators) to add users and manage access for their own employees. Information on SEDDAS accounts, permissions, and the applications managed by SEDDAS may be found at

L2RPT Report Guides

L2RPT SIRS Report refresh dates are now available on the IRS Calendar/Data Refresh Cycles page, sorted two ways: by report refresh date (earliest to latest) and sequentially by SIRS Report number.

Steps to access L2RPT:

Please keep in mind as you review these steps:
As noted at the top of this page, because each local/regional L2RPT reporting environment is hosted independently (and is therefore customizable by each RIC/Big 5 Level 1 center or host site), your local L2RPT environment may vary somewhat from that which is described in any of the steps below. If your instance of L2RPT varies, please call or email your data center or host site's support contacts.

  1. Log into your local/regional Cognos server. The URL/web address must be provided to you by your local/regional Level 1 data center or other host site.
  2. Click on the "Public Folder" tab (or "My Folders" tab, or any other folder/tab designated by your Level 1 data center or host site).
  3. Click on the L2RPT folder (any whose title contains 'L2RPT').
  4. Once inside your L2RPT folder, you may click on any L2RPT report.

From here, use the report guides listed above and follow the instructions in each guide for report-specific navigation and contextual guidance.
