DATES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before June 26, 2007. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) requires that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) provide interested Federal agencies and the public an early opportunity to comment on information collection requests.

The IC Clearance Official, Regulatory Information Management Services, Office of Management, publishes that notice containing proposed information collection requests prior to submission of these requests to OMB. Each proposed information collection, grouped by office, contains the following: (1) Type of review requested, e.g. new, revision, extension, existing or AGENCY: cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:18 Apr 26, 2007 Jkt 211001 reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) Summary of the collection; (4) Description of the need for, and proposed use of, the information; (5) Respondents and frequency of collection; and (6) Reporting and/or Recordkeeping burden.

Dated: April 24, 2007. Angela C. Arrington, IC Clearance Official, Regulatory Information Management Services, Office of Management. Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services Type of Review: Revision. Title: Performance Report: Personnel Development for the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Frequency: Annually. Affected Public: Not-for-profit institutions. Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: Responses: 450. Burden Hours: 3,510. Abstract: This package is a revision and contains instructions and the form necessary for grantees and contractors supported under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Personnel Development to Improve Services and Results for Children with Disabilities, CFDA No. 84.325. Data obtained are used to evaluate and monitor the implementation of IDEA and for Congressional reporting. Analysis of these data will be used in the following ways: (a) To inform the activities and priorities specific to personnel preparation conducted by the U.S Department of Education; (b) to determine variation in personnel preparation and factors related to that variation; and (c) to evaluate the outcomes of the IDEA and the Office of Special Education Programs’ (OSEP) performance measures under the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) and the Program Assessment Rating Tool (PART). OSEP revisions have: (a) Added six items to the data collection instrument to collect data required for reporting under the PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 PART (these additional items will only be requested for students that have completed the preparation program and include data on their knowledge and skill attainment and on their highly qualified teacher status (or qualified for paraprofessionals, or fully certified for related service providers and early intervention service providers); (b) revised the race and ethnicity items to reflect current OMB policy; (c) changed collection to better account for all students that benefit from the grant, as requested by both grantees and OSEP. OSEP will now collect data on all students that participated in grant supported preparation, not just those students that received direct funding. This change will increase the number of students that grantees will enter data on. To address this change, all text limiting responses to those students ‘‘receiving grant support’’ have been removed; and (d) enhanced instructions for a few items to make the form more userfriendly and diminish response ambiguity.
