Abstract: This information collection clearance request seeks an extension of approval for an established expedited process which permits U.S. Department of Education (ED) program offices to make selection criteria substitutions under the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) grant application without having to submit to OMB a previously cleared application package for another review. Usage of the streamlined process for EDGAR approved grant applications, establishes a process for programs to submit an abbreviated list of items for an expedited streamlined approval process by OMB. Many discretionary grant programs in ED use the generic application package cleared under OMB #1894–0006 which allows programs to pick and choose the selection criteria for their grant competitions from among the general EDGAR selection criteria shown at 34 CFR 75.210. The remaining discretionary grant programs use program-specific application packages, cleared by OMB on a case-by-case basis, that require applicants to address specific selection criteria unique to the program, usually derived from program legislation or regulation. During the three-year period for which its specific application package is cleared, a program might need to substitute one or more of the EDGAR generic selection criteria, mentioned above, for one or more of the program-specific criteria contained in the package originally cleared by OMB. These substitutions generally result in a minor alteration in the burden hours imposed by the collection.

Abstract: To gauge progress in addressing the needs of youth with disabilities, the U.S. Department of Education is sponsoring a five-year longitudinal study focused on the educational and transitional experiences of youth between the ages of 13 and 21 in December 2011. The study focuses on three sets of research questions: What are the characteristics of youth with disabilities? What services and accommodations do they receive and what are their courses of study? What PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 71423 are their transitional experiences as they leave high school and their educational, social, and economic outcomes? To shed light on the distinctive experiences of youth with disabilities the study will contrast them with those of youth without disabilities. The study will also compare the experiences of youth with disabilities with those of two previous cohorts of youth with similar disabilities, providing information on progress in addressing the needs of these youth. Districts and youth will be randomly selected to ensure that they are nationally representative. The study sample will include approximately 300 school districts and 15,000 students. Phase I data collection will occur in spring 2012 and spring 2014, when sample members will be ages 13–21 and 15–23, respectively. The study will collect data from parents, youth, principal teachers, and student school records.
