E7–13089 Filed 7–5–07; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 5001–06–P DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE Department of the Army Notice of Availability of the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for Base Closure and Realignment (BRAC) Actions at Fort Belvoir, VA Department of the Army DoD. ACTION: Notice of Availability (NOA). mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Department of the Army announces the availability of an FEIS which evaluates the potential environmental impacts associated with realignment actions directed by the BRAC Commission at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. The FEIS also updates the land use plan portion of the installation’s Real Property Master Plan due to the substantial changes at the installation because of the proposed realignment. DATES: The waiting period for the FEIS will end 30 days after publication of an NOA in the Federal Register by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. ADDRESSES: To obtain a copy of the FEIS contact the Fort Belvoir Directorate of Public Works, 9430 Jackson Loop, Suite 100, Fort Belvoir, Virginia 22060–5116; e-mail address: environmental@belvoir.army.mil. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Don Carr, Fort Belvoir Public Affairs Office, at (703) 805–2583 during normal business hours Monday through Friday. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The subject of the FEIS and the Proposed Action are the construction and renovation activities at the installation associated with the BRAC-directed realignment of Fort Belvoir. To implement the BRAC recommendations, Fort Belvoir will be receiving personnel, equipment, and missions from various closure and realignment actions within the Department of Defense. To implement the BRAC Commission recommendations, the Army will provide the necessary facilities, buildings, and infrastructure to accommodate personnel being realigned from the Washington Headquarters Services (WHS); National GeospatialIntelligence Agency (NGA); various Army entities moving from leased space in the National Capital Region (NCR); U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM); Program Executive Office, Enterprise Information Systems (PEO VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:16 Jul 05, 2007 Jkt 211001 EIS); and Missile Defense Agency Headquarters Command Center (MDA HQCC). Details of the BRAC Commission’s recommendations can be found at http://www.brac.gov. Alternatives in the FEIS include four alternative land use plans that contain alternative means of accommodating the units, agencies and activities being realigned to Fort Belvoir. These alternatives include: (1) Town Center Alternative, (2) City Center Alternative, (3) Satellite Campuses Alternative and (4) Preferred Alternative. The Preferred Alternative contains various elements of the other land use alternatives and includes construction, renovation, and operation of proposed facilities to accommodate incoming military missions as mandated by the 2005 BRAC Commission’s recommendations for Fort Belvoir. The No Action Alternative is also addressed in the FEIS. The FEIS analyses indicate that implementation of the preferred alternative will have short and longterm, significant adverse impacts on the transportation network at Fort Belvoir and its surrounding area, moderate to significant impacts on biological resources, and long-term minor adverse and beneficial impacts on socioeconomic resources. Minor short and long-term adverse impacts on all other resources at the installation would potentially occur from implementation of the preferred alternative. The no action alternative provides the baseline conditions for comparison to the preferred alternative.

ACTION: Notice of final additional requirements and selection criteria. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Assistant Secretary for Special Education and Rehabilitative Services announces additional requirements and selection criteria for a competition in which the Department will select up to 15 States to participate in a pilot program, the Paperwork Waiver Demonstration Program (Paperwork Waiver Program). State proposals approved under this program will create opportunities for participating States to reduce paperwork burdens and other administrative duties in order to increase time for instruction and other activities to improve educational and functional results for children with disabilities, while preserving students’ civil rights and promoting academic achievement. The Assistant Secretary will use these additional requirements and selection criteria for a single, one-time-only competition for this program. DATES: Effective Date: These additional requirements and selection criteria are effective August 6, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Patricia Gonzalez, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW., room 4078, Potomac Center Plaza, Washington, DC 20202–2700. Telephone: (202) 245–7355 or by e-mail: Patricia.Gonzalez@ed.gov If you use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD), you may call PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the Federal Relay Service (FRS) at 1– 800–877–8339. 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. We published a notice of proposed requirements and selection criteria for the Paperwork Waiver Program in the Federal Register on December 19, 2005 (70 FR 75161) (December 2005 Notice). On December 3, 2004, President Bush signed into law Public Law 108–446, 118 Stat. 2647, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004, reauthorizing and amending the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (Act). This new law reflects the importance of strengthening our Nation’s efforts to ensure every child with a disability has available a free appropriate public education (FAPE) that is (1) of high quality and (2) designed to achieve the high standards established in the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). The Paperwork Waiver Program is one of two demonstration programs authorized under the new law that is designed to address parents’, special educators’ and States’ desire to reduce excessive and repetitious paperwork, administrative burden, and noninstructional teacher time and, at the same time, to increase the resources and time available for classroom instruction and other activities focused on improving educational and functional results of children with disabilities. Paperwork burden in special education affects (1) the time school staff can devote to instruction or service provision and (2) retention of staff, particularly special education teachers. In 2002, the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) funded a nationally representative study of teachers’ perceptions of sources of paperwork burden, the hours devoted to these activities, and possible explanations for variations among teachers in the hours devoted to these tasks. Among the findings related to the Individualized Education Program (IEP), student evaluations, progress reporting, and case management was that teachers whose administrative duties and paperwork exceeded four hours per week were more likely to perceive these responsibilities as interfering with their job of teaching. Moreover, the study found that the mean number of hours reported by teachers to be devoted to these tasks was 6.3 hours per week. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\06JYN1.SGM 06JYN1
