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. OMB may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal law, or substantially interfere with any agency’s ability to perform its statutory obligations.

Burden Hours: 45. Abstract: This is a request for approval to collect information from Transition to Teaching (TTT) grantees that will be used to describe the extent to which local education agencies that received TTT grant funds have met the goals relating to teacher recruitment and retention described in their application. TTT grantees are funded for a period of five years. Currently, grantees are required by statute to submit an interim project evaluation to ED at the end of the third project year and a final project evaluation at the project’s end. In turn, the TTT program is required to prepare and submit to the Secretary and to Congress interim and final program evaluations containing the results of these grantee project evaluation reports. An analysis of these reports has provided some data on grantee activities, but the poor quality of some reports and missing or incomplete data in others have made it difficult to aggregate data across grantees in order to accurately describe to Congress the extent of program implementation. This proposed data collection would allow ED to gather data on a common set of indicators across grantees to describe program implementation, and to investigate the conditions under which projects have been successful at recruiting, preparing and retaining highly qualified teachers in high-need schools in high-need LEAs.
