Notice of Proposed Information Collection Requests, 36068-36069 [E6-9908]

Download as PDF 36068 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 121 / Friday, June 23, 2006 / Notices collection will remain available to the public in microform in the Public Search Facility. Thus, all information currently available will remain available in non-electronic format. For the reasons discussed above, the USPTO believes that removal of the paper search collection of marks that include designs will not negatively impact the public. All existing paper records will remain available in microform. Design coding errors will be reduced through checking by applicants and internal training and quality review procedures. The creation of the on-line dual design coding system will benefit the public because it will be available to all members of the public through the Internet. Any interested member of the public is invited to provide comments on this modified plan to eliminate the trademark paper search collection of marks that includes design elements. Once all comments have been reviewed and addressed, and any necessary modifications have been made, the USPTO will submit another report to Congress detailing its plan. The paper collection of marks containing designs will not be removed until the USPTO has certified that the implementation of such plan will not negatively impact the public. An additional notice to the public will be issued 60 days prior to removal. Dated: June 15, 2006. Jon W. Dudas, Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office. [FR Doc.

Eligible Applicants: State educational agencies (SEAs), and if endorsed by the SEA to apply and carry out the project on behalf of the SEA, local educational agencies (LEAs), public charter schools that are LEAs under State law, institutions of higher education (IHEs), other public agencies, private nonprofit organizations, and for-profit organizations. Estimated Available Funds: $3,690,000. Maximum Award: We will reject any application that proposes a budget exceeding $307,500 for a single budget period of 12 months. The Assistant Secretary for Special Education and Rehabilitative Services may change the maximum amount through a notice published in the Federal Register. Number of Awards: 12. Note: The Department is not bound by any estimates in this notice. Project Period: Up to 12 months. Full Text of Announcement I. Funding Opportunity Description Purpose of Program: This program promotes academic achievement and improves results for children with PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 36069 disabilities by supporting technical assistance, model demonstration projects, dissemination of useful information, and implementation activities that are supported by scientifically-based research. Priority: In accordance with 34 CFR 75.105(b)(2)(v), this priority is from allowable activities specified in the statute (see sections 663 and 681(d) of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), 20 U.S.C. 1400 et seq.). Absolute Priority: For FY 2006 this priority is an absolute priority. Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(3), we consider only applications that meet this priority. This priority is: General Supervision Enhancement Grants (GSEG). Background Section 616 of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires the Department and States to establish and implement systems for monitoring implementation of and enforcing obligations under Parts B and C of IDEA. The Department monitors States, and requires each State to monitor its LEAs, using indicators that the Secretary established for certain priority areas under section 616 of IDEA. Under Part B of the IDEA (Part B) each State must develop a State Performance Plan (SPP) that, among other things, evaluates its efforts to implement the requirements and purposes of Part B. As part of its SPP, a State must establish targets for the indicators established by the Secretary, and use those targets and indicators in annually reporting to the Secretary on its performance in the priority areas. Each State also must use its targets and the Secretary’s indicators to report annually to the public on the performance of each LEA in the State. One of the indicators established by the Secretary under section 616 of IDEA (for the priority area concerning the provision of a free appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment) is the participation and performance of children with disabilities on the State assessments required under title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended (ESEA). States are expected to report on student performance on State assessments in their SPPs and Annual Performance Reports (APRs) using the same assessment data required under title I of ESEA. Title I of ESEA requires accountability for the academic achievement of all students. Under that law, every school is expected to be working to ensure that every one of its students and group of students meet State achievement E:\FR\FM\23JNN1.SGM 23JNN1
