Priority: In accordance with 34 CFR 75.105(b)(2)(iv), this priority implements section 5464(c) of the Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Act of 2001 (20 U.S.C. 7253 et seq.).

Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(3) we consider only applications that meet this priority.

In accordance with section 5464(c) and because the FY 2001 Javits appropriation was $7.5 million and the FY 2005 appropriation is $11 million, the Secretary will utilize approximately $3.5 million to fund new awards under the ‘‘Special Rule.’’ Therefore, the Secretary establishes an absolute priority for this competition such that applications submitted in response to this announcement must propose to carry out one or more of the following 5464(b) activities: (1) Conducting— (A) Scientifically based research on methods and techniques for identifying and teaching gifted and talented students and for using gifted and talented programs and methods to serve all students; and (B) Program evaluations, surveys, and the collection, analysis, and development of information needed to E:\FR\FM\08MRN1.SGM 08MRN1
