SEAs may submit data via the World Wide Web using the interactive survey form at surveys.nces.ed.gov/ccdnpefs. If the Web form is used, it includes a digital confirmation page where a pin number may be entered. A successful entry of the pin number serves as a signature by the authorizing official. A certification form also may be printed from the Web site, and signed by the authorizing official and mailed to the Governments Division of the Bureau of the Census, at the address listed in the previous paragraph. This signed form must be mailed within five business days of Web form data submission. Alternatively, SEAs may hand deliver submissions by 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) to: Governments Division, Bureau of the Census, 4600 Silver Hill Road, Suitland, MD 20746. If an SEA’s submission is received by the Bureau of the Census after September 2, 2008, in order for the submission to be accepted, the SEA must show one of the following as proof PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62841 that the submission was mailed on or before the mandatory deadline date: 1.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the authority of section 153(a)(1)(I) of the Education Sciences Reform Act of 2002, 20 U.S.C. 9543, which authorizes NCES to gather data on the financing of education, NCES collects data annually from SEAs through ED Form 2447. The report from SEAs includes attendance, revenue, and expenditure data from which NCES determines the average State per-pupil expenditure (SPPE) for elementary and secondary education, as defined in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended (ESEA) (20 U.S.C. 7801(2)). In addition to utilizing the SPPE data as general information on the financing of elementary and secondary education, the Secretary uses these data directly in calculating allocations for certain formula grant programs, including Title I, Part A of the ESEA, Impact Aid, and Indian Education programs. Other programs, such as the Educational Technology State Grants program (Title II, Part D of the ESEA), the Education for Homeless Children and Youth Program under Title VII of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, the Teacher FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: E:\FR\FM\07NON1.SGM 07NON1 pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES 62842 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 215 / Wednesday, November 7, 2007 / Notices Quality State Grants program (Title II, Part A of the ESEA), and the Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities program (Title IV, Part A of the ESEA), make use of SPPE data indirectly because their formulas are based, in whole or in part, on State Title I, Part A allocations. In January 2008, the Bureau of the Census, acting as the data collection agent for NCES, will e-mail to SEAs ED Form 2447 with instructions and request that SEAs submit data to the Bureau of the Census on March 17, 2008, or as soon as possible thereafter. SEAs are urged to submit accurate and complete data on March 17, or as soon as possible thereafter, to facilitate timely processing. Submissions by SEAs to the Bureau of the Census will be checked for accuracy and returned to each SEA for verification. All data, including any revisions, must be submitted to the Bureau of the Census by an SEA not later than September 2, 2008. Having accurate and consistent information on time is critical to an efficient and fair allocation process and to the NCES statistical process. To ensure timely distribution of Federal education funds based on the best, most accurate data available, NCES establishes, for allocation purposes, September 2, 2008, as the final date by which the NPEFS Web form or ED Form 2447 must be submitted. If an SEA submits revised data after the final deadline that results in a lower SPPE figure, its allocations may be adjusted downward or the Department may request the SEA to return funds. SEAs should be aware that all of these data are subject to audit and that, if any inaccuracies are discovered in the audit process, the Department may seek recovery of overpayments for the applicable programs. If an SEA submits revised data after September 2, 2008, the data also may be too late to be included in the final NCES published dataset.

daily attendance statistics on ED Form 2447 (the National Public 
Education Financial Survey (NPEFS)) for FY 2007. The Secretary sets 
these dates to ensure that data are available to serve as the basis for 
timely distribution of Federal funds. The U.S. Bureau of the Census 
(Bureau of the Census) is the data collection agent for the National 
Center for Education Statistics (NCES). The data will be published by 
NCES and will be used by the Secretary in the calculation of 
allocations for FY 2009 appropriated funds.

DATES: The date on which submissions will first be accepted is March

it includes a digital confirmation page where a pin number may be 
entered. A successful entry of the pin number serves as a signature by 
the authorizing official. A certification form also may be printed from 
the Web site, and signed by the authorizing official and mailed to the

    Alternatively, SEAs may hand deliver submissions by 4 p.m. (Eastern 
Time) to: Governments Division, Bureau of the Census, 4600 Silver Hill 
Road, Suitland, MD 20746.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the authority of section 153(a)(1)(I) 
of the Education Sciences Reform Act of 2002, 20 U.S.C. 9543, which 
authorizes NCES to gather data on the financing of education, NCES 
collects data annually from SEAs through ED Form 2447. The report from 
SEAs includes attendance, revenue, and expenditure data from which NCES 
determines the average State per-pupil expenditure (SPPE) for 
elementary and secondary education, as defined in the Elementary and 
Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended (ESEA) (20 U.S.C. 7801(2)).
    In addition to utilizing the SPPE data as general information on 
the financing of elementary and secondary education, the Secretary uses 
these data directly in calculating allocations for certain formula 
grant programs, including Title I, Part A of the ESEA, Impact Aid, and 
Indian Education programs. Other programs, such as the Educational 
Technology State Grants program (Title II, Part D of the ESEA), the 
Education for Homeless Children and Youth Program under Title VII of 
the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, the Teacher

[[Page 62842]]

Quality State Grants program (Title II, Part A of the ESEA), and the 
Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities program (Title IV, Part A of 
the ESEA), make use of SPPE data indirectly because their formulas are 
based, in whole or in part, on State Title I, Part A allocations.
    In January 2008, the Bureau of the Census, acting as the data 
collection agent for NCES, will e-mail to SEAs ED Form 2447 with 
instructions and request that SEAs submit data to the Bureau of the 
Census on March 17, 2008, or as soon as possible thereafter. SEAs are 
urged to submit accurate and complete data on March 17, or as soon as 
possible thereafter, to facilitate timely processing. Submissions by 
SEAs to the Bureau of the Census will be checked for accuracy and 
returned to each SEA for verification. All data, including any 
revisions, must be submitted to the Bureau of the Census by an SEA not 
later than September 2, 2008.
    Having accurate and consistent information on time is critical to 
an efficient and fair allocation process and to the NCES statistical 
process. To ensure timely distribution of Federal education funds based 
on the best, most accurate data available, NCES establishes, for 
allocation purposes, September 2, 2008, as the final date by which the 
NPEFS Web form or ED Form 2447 must be submitted. If an SEA submits 
revised data after the final deadline that results in a lower SPPE 
figure, its allocations may be adjusted downward or the Department may 
request the SEA to return funds. SEAs should be aware that all of these 
data are subject to audit and that, if any inaccuracies are discovered 
in the audit process, the Department may seek recovery of overpayments 
for the applicable programs. If an SEA submits revised data after 
September 2, 2008, the data also may be too late to be included in the 
final NCES published dataset.
