OMB No.: 0970–0229. Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is requesting comments on plans to implement a third grade follow-up to the Head Start Impact Study. This study will collect information for determining, on a national basis, how Head Start affects outcomes in the third grade for children who participated in the program as compared to children not enrolled in Head Start and to determine under which conditions Head Start Works best and for which children. The Head Start Impact Study was longitudinal study that involved approximately 5,000 first-time-enrolled, three- and four-year-old preschool children across 84 nationally representative grantee/delegate agencies (in communities where there were more eligible children and families than can be served by the program). The participating children were randomly assigned to either a Head Start group (that could enroll in Head Start services) or a control group (that could not enroll in Head Start services but could enroll in other available services selected by their parents). Data collection for the study began in the fall of 2002 and extended through spring 2006. It is the intention of the Administration for Children and Families to examine outcomes for this sample of children and families during the spring of the children’s third grade year. Data will be collected in the spring of 2007 (for the four-year-old cohort) and the spring of 2008 (for the threeyear-old cohort). The domains of development to be assessed include demographic characteristics of the children and families, as well as children’s cognitive development, school achievement and adjustment, socio-emotional functioning, heath and access to health care, and relationships with peers. Information will also be collected on parents’ involvement in educational activities, mental health and well-being, and monitoring and other parenting practices, and information related to the characteristics and quality of the schools and classrooms that children attend.

    Title: Third Grade Follow-up to the Heat Start Impact Study.
    OMB No.: 0970-0229.
    Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) 
within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is requesting 
comments on plans to implement a third grade follow-up to the Head 
Start Impact Study. This study will collect information for 
determining, on a national basis, how Head Start affects outcomes in 
the third grade for children who participated in the program as 
compared to children not enrolled in Head Start and to determine under 
which conditions Head Start Works best and for which children.
    The Head Start Impact Study was longitudinal study that involved 
approximately 5,000 first-time-enrolled, three- and four-year-old 
preschool children across 84 nationally representative grantee/delegate 
agencies (in communities where there were more eligible children and 
families than can be served by the program). The participating children 
were randomly assigned to either a Head Start group (that could enroll 
in Head Start services) or a control group (that could not enroll in 
Head Start services but could enroll in other available services 
selected by their parents). Data collection for the study began in the 
fall of 2002 and extended through spring 2006.
    It is the intention of the Administration for Children and Families 
to examine outcomes for this sample of children and families during the 
spring of the children's third grade year. Data will be collected in 
the spring of 2007 (for the four-year-old cohort) and the spring of 
2008 (for the three-year-old cohort). The domains of development to be 
assessed include demographic characteristics of the children and 
families, as well as children's cognitive development, school 
achievement and adjustment, socio-emotional functioning, heath and 
access to health care, and relationships with peers. Information will 
also be collected on parents' involvement in educational activities, 
mental health and well-being, and monitoring and other parenting 
practices, and information related to the characteristics and quality 
of the schools and classrooms that children attend.
