Download as PDF 9738 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 42 / Monday, March 5, 2007 / Notices to meters As outlined in that policy, each state or territory must adopt NAD 83 legislation (typically referenced as Codes, Laws or Statutes), which specifically defines a conversion to either U.S. Survey or International Feet as defined by the U.S. Bureau of Standards in Federal Register Notice 59–5442. To date, 48 states have adopted the NAD 83 legislation. However, whoever for various reasons, only 33 included a specific definition of the relationship between meters and feet. This lack of uniformity has led to confusion and misuse of SPCs as provided in various NGS products, services and tools, and created errors in mapping, charting and surveying programs in numerouis states due to inconsistent coordinate conversions.

The actual level of funding, if any, depends on final congressional action. However, we are inviting applications to allow enough time to complete the grant process if Congress appropriates funds for this program. Maximum Award: We will reject any application that proposes a budget exceeding $600,000 for a single budget period of 12 months.

Note: The Department is not bound by any estimates in this notice. Project Period: Up to 60 months. Full Text of Announcement I. Funding Opportunity Description Purpose of Program: The purposes of this program are to (1) help address State-identified needs for highly qualified personnel—in special education, related services, early intervention, and regular education—to work with infants or toddlers with disabilities, or children with disabilities; and (2) ensure that those personnel have the skills and knowledge—derived from practices that have been determined through research and experience to be successful—that are needed to serve those children. Priority: In accordance with 34 CFR 75.105(b)(2)(v), this priority is from allowable activities specified in the statute (see sections 662(d) and 681(d) of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)). Absolute Priority: For FY 2007 this priority is an absolute priority. Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(3), we consider only applications that meet this priority. This priority is: National Early Childhood Training Enhancement Center Background: In growing numbers, infants, toddlers, and preschoolers with disabilities are joining their peers without disabilities in natural settings such as childcare centers, Early Head Start and Head Start programs, and public and private preschools. Early interventionists, early childhood educators and special educators, related services providers, and childcare personnel share responsibility for ensuring high quality services and improved outcomes for young children with disabilities. To effectively meet the learning and PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 9739 developmental needs of young children (birth through five) with disabilities, all of these professionals must have knowledge and training in early intervention and early childhood special education, including how to work with families with young children. Recent data collected by the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP)funded Center to Inform Personnel Preparation Policy and Practice in Early Intervention and Preschool Education (http://www.uconnucedd.org/ per_prep_center/index.html) suggest, however, that programs have serious difficulty finding and hiring personnel with adequate training in early intervention or early childhood special education. In addition, many early care and education personnel do not have the training or knowledge to effectively meet the diverse developmental and educational needs of young children with disabilities in natural environments. In order to meet the early learning and developmental needs of young children more effectively, future and current early childhood personnel must have access to training, educational resources, and materials that reflect evidence-based practice in the fields of early intervention and early childhood education. In particular, educators and service providers must have: (1) Knowledge of authentic assessment practices such as collecting work samples and observational records, which go beyond assessment of discrete skills to assessments that capture the depth of children’s functional abilities within their daily context; (2) training in service coordination and collaborative models of service delivery (this is particularly important as specialized service providers go into natural environments, such as childcare centers and preschools, where staff may not be as knowledgeable about evidence-based practices in working with children with disabilities and their families); and (3) knowledge of interventions and practices that support the development of school readiness skills, particularly in the areas of language, early literacy, and social-emotional development. To this end, the Assistant Secretary proposes a National Early Childhood Training Enhancement Center for preservice higher education faculty and professional development providers who train early interventionists, early childhood educators and special educators, related services providers, and childcare personnel (the targeted constituent group) to work with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers with disabilities (birth through five) and their families.
