AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: On June 12, 2008, the Department of Education published a comment period notice in the Federal Register (Page 33414, Column 3) for the information collection, ‘‘Consolidated State Performance Report (Part I and II).’’ This notice hereby corrects the Focused Question for Public Comment to read: Focused Question for Public Comment: EDFacts Data Linkages for Prepopulation of CSPR. The SY 2006–07 CSPR contained questions that were ‘‘Initially Prepopulated from EDFacts.’’ The ‘‘Initial Prepopulation’’ strategy allowed CSPR coordinators the flexibility to use either the data submitted through EDFacts or an alternative data source to respond to questions on the CSPR. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Question No. 17:00 Jul 15, 2008 Jkt 214001 It is ED’s intention and desire to move as many of those questions, which were ‘‘Initially prepopulated’’ in 2006–07 to full utilization of EDFacts Submissions for 2007–08. As a result, CSPR coordinators will only be able to amend responses to those questions on the CSPR by working with their EDFacts coordinator to resubmit a file through EDFacts. The Department plans to move cautiously towards this new strategy by carefully reviewing each state’s EDFacts transition agreement to ensure that all states will continue to have the capacity to submit their CSPR to the Department in a timely manner and with complete and accurate information. The Department is soliciting public comment from the states on the viability of moving any or all of the following questions, which were initially prepopulated in 2006–07 to exclusive prepopulation for 2007–08 or 2008–09. Questions on the 2007–08 CSPR which were ‘‘Initially Prepopulated from EDFacts’’ in 2006–07 are listed below: Descriptor 1.3.1 ............................................................................................ 1.3.2 ............................................................................................ 1.4.3 ............................................................................................ 1.4.9.1.2 ...................................................................................... 1.4.9.1.3 ...................................................................................... 1.4.9.2.2 ...................................................................................... 1.4.9.2.3 ...................................................................................... 1.6.5.1 ......................................................................................... 1.8.1 ............................................................................................ 1.9.2.1 ......................................................................................... 1.9.2.2 ......................................................................................... 1.9.2.5.1 ...................................................................................... 1.9.2.5.2 ...................................................................................... 1.10.1 .......................................................................................... 1.10.2 .......................................................................................... 2.3.1.1 ......................................................................................... 2.3.1.2 ......................................................................................... 2.3.1.3 ......................................................................................... 2.3.1.4 ......................................................................................... 2.3.2.1 ......................................................................................... 2.3.2.3.1 ...................................................................................... 2.3.3.1.1 ...................................................................................... 2.3.3.1.2 ...................................................................................... 2.3.3.3 ......................................................................................... 2.3.4.1 ......................................................................................... 2.3.4.2 ......................................................................................... 2.3.6.1.2 ...................................................................................... 2.4.1.2 ......................................................................................... 2.4.1.6.1 ...................................................................................... 2.4.1.6.2 ...................................................................................... 2.4.2.6.1 ...................................................................................... 2.4.2.6.2 ...................................................................................... 2.7.2.1 ......................................................................................... 2.7.2.2.1 ...................................................................................... 2.7.2.2.2 ...................................................................................... 2.7.2.3.1 ...................................................................................... 2.7.2.3.2 ...................................................................................... 2.7.2.4.1 ...................................................................................... 2.7.2.4.2 ...................................................................................... 2.7.2.5.1 ...................................................................................... 2.7.2.5.2 ...................................................................................... 2.7.2.6.1 ...................................................................................... 2.7.2.6.2 ......................................................................................
