ACTION: Notice of a new system of records. In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (Privacy Act), the Department of Education (Department) publishes this notice of a new system of records entitled ‘‘National Longitudinal Transitions Study—2012’’ (18–13–27). The National Center for Education Evaluation and Regional Assistance at the Department’s Institute of Education Sciences (IES) commissioned this study as part of the congressionally mandated national assessment of Individuals with Disability Education Act (IDEA). It will be conducted under a contract that IES awarded in September 2010. The central research questions that the study will address are: How do the characteristics, courses of study, receipt of services and accommodations, school experiences, and key outcomes for transition-age students with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) differ from transition-age students with a plan that provides accommodations under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504 Plan) and from transition-age students without a Section 504 Plan or an IEP? How have these facets changed over time for students with IEPs? The system will contain records from 500 school districts on approximately 15,000 students and their parents, 15,000 teachers, and 2,000 principals. DATES: The Department seeks comment on the new system of records described in this notice, in accordance with the requirements of the Privacy Act. We must receive your comments on the proposed routine uses for the system of records referenced in this notice on or before May 29, 2012. The Department filed a report describing the new system of records covered by this notice with the Chair of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, the Chair of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and the Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on April 24, 2012. This system of records will become effective at the later date of—(1) The expiration of the 40-day period for OMB review on June 4, 2012, unless OMB waives 10 days of SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\27APN1.SGM 27APN1

SUMMARY: The Albuquerque District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) 
has prepared a draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) 
on the findings of a flood risk management study along the Rio Grande 
from San Acacia downstream to San Marcial in Socorro County, New 
Mexico. The recommended plan is to replace the existing embankment 
between the Low Flow Conveyance Channel and the Rio Grande with a 
structurally competent levee capable of containing high-volume, long-
duration flows. This engineered levee would substantially reduce the 
risk of damage from floods emanating from the Rio Grande. The local 
cost-sharing sponsors of the proposed project are the Middle Rio Grande 
Conservancy District and the New Mexico Interstate Stream Commission.

DATES: All comments must be submitted or postmarked no later June 11, 
2012.

ADDRESSES: Comments, questions, requests for copies of the draft SEIS, 
and requests for notification of the public meeting can be addressed 
to: William DeRagon, email: william.r.deragon@usace.army.mil; or Mark 
Doles, email: mark.w.doles@usace,army.mil; U.S. Army Corps of 
Engineers, 4101 Jefferson Plaza NE., Albuquerque, New Mexico 87109.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Previously, an environmental impact 
statement (1992) and a supplement (1977) were published regarding this 
project. Currently, a new draft SEIS has been prepared to evaluate 
effects of revised levee design and additional alternatives. The draft 
SEIS is integrated with a draft General Reevaluation Report, and the 
integrated document is entitled: Draft General Reevaluation Report and 
Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement II: Rio Grande Floodway, 
San Acacia to Bosque del Apache Unit, Socorro County, New Mexico 
(hereafter referred to as the draft GRR/SEIS-II).
