The Secretary may also require more frequent performance reports under 34 CFR 75.720(c). For specific requirements on reporting, please go to http://www.ed.gov/fund/grant/apply/ appforms/appforms.html. Some of the funds awarded through this program were appropriated under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, Public Law 111–5, and are subject to additional accountability and transparency reporting requirements, which are described in section 1512(c) of the ARRA. Grantees receiving funds provided by the ARRA must be able to distinguish these funds from any other funds they receive through this program. Recipients of ARRA funds will be required to submit quarterly reports on the expenditure of these funds no later than ten days after the end of each calendar quarter through a centralized reporting Web site administered by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB): http://www.federalreporting.gov. The information reported at this Web site will be available to the Department, the White House, OMB and the public on http://www.Recovery.gov. Additional guidance providing further detail on the quarterly report will be provided at a later time. 4. Performance Measures: The objective of the TQP Grants Program is to increase student achievement in K–12 schools by developing highly qualified teachers. Under GPRA, the following measures will be used by the Department in assessing the performance of this program: (a) Performance Measure 1: Graduation. The percentage of program completers who— (1) Attain initial certification/ licensure by passing all necessary certification/licensure assessments and attain a bachelor’s degree (prebaccalaureate teacher preparation program) or initial license (fifth year initial licensing program) within six years of beginning the program, or a master’s degree (residency program) within two years of beginning the program; or (2) Attain Highly Competent Early Childhood Educator status by earning a bachelor’s degree within six years of beginning the program or an associate’s degree within three years of beginning the program. (b) Performance Measure 2: Employment Retention. The percentage of beginning teachers who are retained in teaching in the partner high-need VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:07 Aug 03, 2009 Jkt 217001 LEA or high-need ECE program three years after being hired by the high-need LEA or high-need ECE program; (c) Performance Measure 3: Improved Scores. The percentage of grantees that report improved scaled scores on assessments for initial State certification or licensure of teachers; (d) Efficiency Measure: Employment Retention. The cost of a successful outcome where success is defined as retention of the teacher in the partner high-need LEA or high-need ECE program three years after the teacher is hired by the high-need LEA or highneed ECE program; (e) Short-Term Performance Measures. Because the performance measures already listed would not provide data for a number of years, the Department has also established the following two measures that will provide data in a shorter timeframe— (1) Short-Term Performance Measure 1: Persistence. The percentage of program participants, who were not scheduled to graduate in the previous reporting period, and persisted in the postsecondary program in the current reporting period; and (2) Short-Term Performance Measure 2: Employment Retention. The percentage of beginning teachers who are retained in teaching in the partner high-need LEA or high-need ECE program one year after being hired by the LEA or high-need ECE program. Note: If funded, you will be asked to collect and report data on these measures in your project’s annual performance report (EDGAR, 34 CFR 75.590). Applicants are also advised to consider these measures in conceptualizing the design, implementation, and evaluation of their proposed projects because of their importance in the application review process. Collection of data on these measures should be a part of the evaluation plan, along with measures of progress on goals and objectives that are specific to your project. All grantees will be expected to submit an annual performance report documenting their success in addressing these performance measures. VII.
