Download as PDF erowe on PROD1PC64 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 80 / Tuesday, April 28, 2009 / Notices disclosure of proposed test items for the writing pilot would significantly impede implementation of the NAEP program, and is therefore protected by exemption 9(B) of section 552b(c) of Title 5 U.S.C. The Ad Hoc Committee on NAEP Testing and Reporting on Students with Disabilities and English Language Learners will meet in open session from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Thereafter, the Executive Committee will meet in open session from 4:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. and in closed session from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. During the closed session the Executive Committee will receive a briefing from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) on options for NAEP contracts covering the 2008– 2012 assessment years, based on funding for Fiscal Year 2009–2010. The discussion of contract options and costs will address the implications for congressionally mandated goals and adherence to Board policies on NAEP assessments. This part of the meeting must be conducted in closed session because public discussion of this information would disclose independent government cost estimates and contracting options, adversely impacting the confidentiality of the contracting process. Public disclosure of information discussed would significantly impede implementation of the NAEP contracts, and is therefore protected by exemption 9(B) of section 552b(c) of Title 5 U.S.C. The second portion of the closed session of the Executive Committee is for discussion of staff appointments and actions. These discussions pertain solely to internal personnel rules and practices of an agency and will disclose information of a personal nature where disclosure would constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. As such, the discussions are protected by exemptions 2 and 6 of section 552b(c) of Title 5 U.S.C. On May 15, the full Board will meet in open session from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. The Board will review and approve the agenda and the March 2009 Board meeting minutes. Following these actions and following welcome remarks from Seattle hosts, the Governing Board will receive a report from the Interim Executive Director of the Governing Board, and hear an update on the work of NCES. On May 15, three of the Board’s standing committees—the Assessment Development Committee, the Reporting and Dissemination Committee, and the Committee on Standards, Design and Methodology will meet in open sessions from 9:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:33 Apr 27, 2009 Jkt 217001 On May 15 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. the full Board will meet in closed session to receive a briefing on the NAEP 2008 Arts Report Card from the Associate Commissioner of NCES. The Governing Board will be provided with embargoed data on the Arts Report Card that cannot be discussed in an open meeting prior to their official release. From 1:30 p.m. to 2:45 p.m., the full Board will receive an update from NCES on NAEP participation and motivation issues on the 2009 Math, Reading, and Science assessments. The participation and motivation issues pertain to the assessment results and cannot be discussed in open session prior to their release. Both these sessions must therefore be conducted in closed session as premature disclosure of data would significantly impede implementation of the NAEP program, and is therefore protected by exemption 9(B) of section 552b(c) of Title 5 U.S.C. From 3 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. the Board will receive a briefing on the Governing Board/Council of Chief State School Officers Policy Task Force from the Task Force Chair Joe Willhoft, and Assistant Superintendent of Washington Office of Public Instruction. From 3:45 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. the Board will receive an update on the NAEP 2012 Technological Literacy Framework Project. The May 15 session of the Board meeting is scheduled to adjourn at 4:30 p.m. On May 16, the Nominations Committee will meet in closed session from 7:45 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. to review and discuss confidential information regarding nominees received for Board vacancies for terms beginning on October 1, 2009. These discussions pertain solely to internal personnel rules and practices of an agency and will disclose information of a personal nature where disclosure would constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. As such, the discussions are protected by exemptions 2 and 6 of section 552b(c) of Title 5 U.S.C. The full Board will meet in open session on May 16 from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. to receive and take action on Committee reports. The May 16, 2009 session of the Board meeting is scheduled to adjourn at 10 a.m. Detailed minutes of the meeting, including summaries of the activities of the closed sessions and related matters that are informative to the public and consistent with the policy of section 5 U.S.C. 552b(c) will be available to the public within 14 days of the meeting.

ROUTINE USES OF RECORDS MAINTAINED IN THE SYSTEM, INCLUDING CATEGORIES 
OF USERS AND THE PURPOSES OF SUCH USES:
    The Department may disclose information contained in a record in 
this system of records without the consent of the individual if the 
disclosure is compatible with the purposes for which the record was 
collected. The Department may make these disclosures on a case-by-case

of individually identifiable information from a record in this system 
must also comply with the requirements of section 183 of the ESRA (20

    The computer system employed by the Department and by the
