ACTION: Final regulations. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Secretary amends the regulations governing the Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MSAP) in 34 CFR part 280. These amendments allow the MSAP to use an approach similar to that in § 75.200 for establishing selection criteria in grant competitions. Under this approach the MSAP has the flexibility to use selection criteria from its program regulations, from the menu of general selection criteria in the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) in § 75.210, based on statutory provisions in accordance with § 75.209, or from any combination of these. DATES: These regulations are effective April 9, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Steven L. Brockhouse, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW., room 4W229, Washington, DC 20202–5970. Telephone: (202) 260–2476 or via Internet: steve.brockhouse@ed.gov.

Individuals with disabilities may obtain this document in an alternative format (e.g., Braille, large print, audiotape, or computer diskette) on request to the contact person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. On August 22, 2006 the Secretary published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for these amendments in the Federal Register (71 FR 48866). In the preamble to the NPRM, the Secretary discussed on pages 48866 and 48867 the major changes proposed in that document to provide the MSAP with the flexibility to use different types of selection criteria when evaluating grant applications in a specific grant competition. These included the following: • Amending § 280.30 to give the Secretary the flexibility to use selection criteria from § 280.31, from the approved menu of general selection criteria in § 75.210 or from selection criteria based on statutory provisions governing the MSAP, established in accordance with § 75.209. • Amending § 280.31 to remove the mandatory point values from the selection criteria in this section of the MSAP regulations. There are no differences between the NPRM and these final regulations. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Analysis of Comments In response to the Secretary’s invitation in the NPRM, nine parties submitted comments on the proposed regulations. An analysis of the comments follows. We discuss substantive issues under the sections of the regulations to which they pertain. Generally, we do not address technical and other minor changes—and suggested changes the law does not authorize the Secretary to make. Section 280.30 How Does the Secretary Evaluate an Application? Comment: Two commenters expressed the opinion that the current selection criteria work effectively to address the MSAP’s statutory purpose and requirements, and consequently that a change in approach to permit the use of other selection criteria is not needed at this time. Discussion: The Department proposed these changes because we have been constrained in past MSAP competitions to using only the program selection criteria in § 280.31, whether or not their use continues to work well in the E:\FR\FM\09MRR1.SGM 09MRR1
