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. The Director, 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 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.

Burden Hours: 7,889. Abstract: The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) Quick Response Information System (QRIS) consists of the Fast Response Survey System (FRSS) and the Postsecondary Education Quick Information System (PEQIS). The QRIS currently conducts surveys under OMB generic clearance 1850–0733, which expires in October 2009. This clearance request represents a request for a continuation of the current clearance conditions through October 2012. FRSS primarily conducts surveys of the elementary/secondary sector (districts, schools) and public libraries. PEQIS conducts surveys of the postsecondary education sector. FRSS and PEQIS surveys are cleared under the QRIS generic clearance. The QRIS clearance goes through the regular clearance process at OMB with a 60-day notice and a 30-day notice as part of the 120-day review period. The QRIS package describes the general scope of the surveys, their quick turnaround time, their length, size of sample, sample design, and some typical topics. Each individual FRSS or PEQIS survey goes into the clearance process with an abbreviated clearance package, justifying the particular content of the survey, describing the sample design, the timeline for the survey activities, and the questionnaire. The review period for each individual survey is approximately 45 days, including a 30day Federal Register notice period. OMB will provide comments as soon after the end of the 30-day notice period as possible. This generic clearance request is for surveys of state education agencies, school districts, schools, postsecondary institutions, and libraries. Surveys of teachers, students, commercial establishments, and households are not included in this request.

E9–9655 Filed 4–27–09; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4000–01–P DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION Small, Rural School Achievement Program AGENCY: Office of Elementary and Secondary Education, Department of Education. ACTION: Notice announcing application deadline. Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number 84.358A. SUMMARY: Under the Small, Rural School Achievement (SRSA) Program, the U.S. Department of Education (Department) awards grants on a formula basis to eligible local educational agencies (LEAs) to address the unique needs of rural school districts. In this notice, we establish the deadline for submission of fiscal year (FY) 2009 SRSA grant applications. Application Deadline: June 30, 2009, 4:30:00 p.m. Washington, DC time. An eligible LEA that is required to submit an application must do so electronically by the application deadline specified in this notice. If it submits its application after this deadline, the LEA will receive a grant award only to the extent that funds are available after the Department awards grants to other eligible LEAs under the program. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Which LEAs Are Eligible for an Award Under the SRSA program? An LEA (which includes public charter schools that are considered LEAs under State law) is eligible for an award under the SRSA program if— (a) The total number of students in average daily attendance at all of the schools served by the LEA is fewer than 600, or each county in which a school served by the LEA is located has a total PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 19209 population density of fewer than 10 persons per square mile; and (b) All of the schools served by the LEA are designated with a school locale code of 7 or 8 by the Department’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), or the Secretary has determined, based on a demonstration by the LEA and concurrence of the State educational agency (SEA), that the LEA is located in an area defined as rural by a governmental agency of the State. The school locale codes are the locale codes determined on the basis of the NCES school code methodology in place on the date of enactment of section 6211(b) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended. Which Eligible LEAs Must Submit an Application To Receive a FY 2009 SRSA Grant Award? An eligible LEA must submit an application to receive a FY 2009 SRSA grant award if it falls under any of the following categories: 1. The LEA never submitted an application for SRSA funds in any prior year; 2. The LEA received an SRSA grant award for FY 2006 and, as of December 31, 2008, had not drawn down from the Department’s Grant Administration and Payment System any of its FY 2006 SRSA funds; 3. The LEA was identified in a prior year as needing to re-apply for SRSA funds because of the absence of drawdown activity, but did not do so. Under the regulations in 34 CFR 75.104(a), the Secretary makes grants only to an eligible party that submits an application. Given the limited purpose served by the application under the SRSA program, the Secretary considers the application requirement to be met if the LEA submitted an SRSA application for any prior year and does not fall under any of the categories listed above requiring the submission of a new application. In this circumstance, unless the LEA advises the Secretary by the application deadline that it is withdrawing its application, the Secretary deems the application that the LEA previously submitted to remain in effect for FY 2009 funding, and the LEA does not have to submit an additional application. The Department intends to provide, by April 30, 2009, a list of LEAs eligible for FY 2009 funds on the SRSA Web site at http://www.ed.gov/programs/ reapsrsa/index.html under the ‘‘Eligibility’’ hyperlink. The Web site will indicate which eligible LEAs must submit a new application to the Department to receive an FY 2009 SRSA E:\FR\FM\28APN1.SGM 28APN1
