Abstract: The U.S. Department of Education has as one of its important policy goals expanding the number of high-quality public school choice options. Specifically, according to Part B section 5201 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, two of the established purposes of the Charter School Program office are: Evaluating the effects of charter schools, including the effects on students, student academic achievement, staff and parents; and expanding the number of high-quality charter schools available to students across the nation. Charter school authorization is the center of efforts to expand and ensure high-quality public school choice options through public charter schools. Charter school authorizers are the public entities primarily responsible for: Initial charter authorizations, on-going monitoring and oversight, and charter renewal and closure decisions. Currently there is not a comprehensive, fully-populated tool for tracking the activities of and evaluating the quality of authorizers nationwide based on their authorizing decisions in light of schools’ performance. The charter authorizer survey will be the key tool by which the National Charter School Resource Center collects the following data elements from the nation’s charter school authorizers: Authorizing agency; authorizing agency type (e.g., school district, State Educational Agency, independent authorizer), basic school information, year the school opened, past renewal decision(s), reasons for nonrenewal (if applicable), year closed (if applicable), reason for closure (if applicable), and the next renewal decision year. The charter school authorizer survey will be administered once annually, in the spring. Respondents will be able to complete and return the survey in paper form or electronically, by visiting a link stated on the paper form.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: The Striving Readers program is authorized as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111–117) (the Act) under the demonstration authority in Title I, part E, section 1502 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended (ESEA). $200 million in funds is available in fiscal year 2010 under section 1502 of the ESEA for a comprehensive literacy development and education program to advance literacy skills, including pre-literacy skills, reading, and writing, for students from birth through grade 12, including limited-English-proficient students and students with disabilities. To clearly distinguish this program from the Striving Readers program funded from FY 2005 to FY 2009, which focused on adolescent literacy, the Department is referring to the program created pursuant to the FY 2010 appropriation as the ‘‘Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy’’ program. The Act reserves $10 million for formula grants to States to create or maintain a State Literacy Team with expertise in literacy development and education for children from birth through grade 12 and to assist States in developing a comprehensive literacy plan. One-half of one percent of these funds is reserved for the Secretary of the Interior for a comprehensive literacy program for schools funded by the Bureau of Indian Education and onehalf of one percent is reserved for such programs for grants to the outlying areas. After reserving up to 5 percent of the total appropriation for national activities, the Department must use the remaining funds for competitive awards to SEAs. SEAs may use up to five percent for State leadership activities and must award not less than 95 percent E:\FR\FM\16NON1.SGM 16NON1
