Arrington, Leader, Information Management Case Services Team, Regulatory Information Management Services, Office of the Chief Information Officer. Office of Planning, Evaluation, and Policy Development Type of Review: Regular. Title: Annual Collection of Elementary and Secondary Education Data for the Education Data Exchange Network (EDEN). Frequency: Annually. Affected Public: State, local, or tribal gov’t, SEAs or LEAs (primary). Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: Responses: 52. Burden Hours: 297,060. Abstract: The Performance Based Data Management Initiative (PBDMI) is in the second phase of a multiple year effort to consolidate the collection of education information about States, Districts, and Schools in a way that improves data quality and reduces paperwork burden for all of the national education partners. To minimize the burden on the data providers, PBDMI seeks the transfer of the proposed data as soon as it has been processed for State, District, and School use. These data will then be stored in EDEN and accessed by federal education program managers and analysts as needed to make decisions. This will eliminate redundant data collections while providing for the timeliness of data submission and use. Additional Information: The Department of Education (ED) is specifically requesting the data providers in each State Education Agency (SEA) to review the proposed data sets to determine which of these data can be provided for the upcoming 2005–06 school year and which data would be available in later years (2006– 07 or 2007–08) and which data, if any, is never expected to be available from the SEA. ED also seeks to know if the PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 53351 SEA data definitions are consistent and compatible with the EDEN definitions and accurately reflect the way data is stored and used for education by the States, Districts, and Schools. Our responses to the public comments that were submitted in June and July are found in Attachment E (covering policy and process issues) and Attachment C (addressing changes in the proposed data requirements). There are some significant changes in this version of Attachment D. In it we describe the EDEN plan to reduce the paperwork burden on the states and districts.
