Title of Collection: Case Studies of Current and Former Grantees under the Title III National Professional Development Program (NPDP). OMB Control Number: Pending. Type of Review: New. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 438. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 450. Abstract: Grants are made to Institutions of Higher Education that have entered into consortium arrangements with states or school districts. Funded projects are designed to increase the pool of highly-qualified teachers prepared to serve EL students and increase the skills of teachers already serving them. The purpose of this study is to examine how a sample of grantees is implementing their grants with respect to four areas: (1) The content and structure of the education they provide to current and prospective teachers of English Learners; (2) the nature of changes they attempt to make to the full teacher education program at their institutions; (3) the efforts grantees make to institutionalize their projects so that they can be sustained after the grant ends; and (4) their efforts to track former program participants. Information gathered on these four topics will be used to identify issues that could be investigated in a larger, more representative study. This study will consist of 15 purposively-selected current grantees and nine purposively-selected former grantees. The case study sites will be selected from among the grantees in the 2007 cohort (‘‘current grantees’’) and those in the 2002 and 2004 cohorts (‘‘former grantees’’), and will provide information on some of the pre-service and in-service teacher training models and approaches that current grantees are using, as well as strategies that former grantees have used to track newlyminted teachers after program completion and to plan for continuing program services after the federal grant period. The study will collect data from the current grantees through site visits and VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:31 May 23, 2012 Jkt 226001 from the former grantees through telephone interviews.

SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 This information collection request contains: (1) OMB No.: 1910–5164; (2) Information Collection Request Title: Customer Electricity Data Access and Control Questionnaire; (3) Type of Request: Renewal with changes; (4) Purpose: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) has developed and launched a new consumer-focused Web site (http:// openei.org/utilityaccess) with the capability to map how and what electricity use data utilities provide to their customers. An online questionnaire device captures and publishes the necessary information as a series of web-based maps upon completion by electricity providers. Each electric utility has the opportunity to fill out a web-based questionnaire that will automatically generate the informational maps. Consumers can visit the maps and Web site to learn about data access offered by their utility and how to use energy more efficiently. Generation of such maps requires DOE to collect information from electricity providers about data access and sharing services offered to their customers. DOE is requesting a 3-year approval to continue to collect and report this information using an improved collection instrument; (5) Annual Estimated Number of Total Responses: 3,261; (6) Annual Estimated Number of Burden Hours: 761; (7) Annual Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Cost Burden: $0. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Statutory Authority: Section 13(b) of the Federal Energy Administration Act of 1974 (FEA Act), as amended, codified at 15 U.S.C. 772(b) and Section 1301 of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA), as amended, codified at 42 U.S.C. 17381.

(SNG) in Calhoun and Cleburne Counties, Alabama. The Commission will use this EA in its decision-making process to determine whether the project is in the public convenience and necessity. This notice announces the opening of the scoping process the Commission will use to gather input from the public and interested agencies on the project. Your input will help the Commission staff determine what issues they need to evaluate in the EA. Please note that the scoping period will close on June 16, 2012. Further details on how to submit written comments are in the Public Participation section of this notice. This notice is being sent to the Commission’s current environmental mailing list for this project. State and local government representatives should notify their constituents of this proposed project and encourage them to comment on their areas of concern. If you are a landowner receiving this notice, and you are contacted by a representative of SNG about the acquisition of an easement to construct, operate, and maintain the proposed facilities, please note that the company would seek to negotiate a mutually acceptable agreement. However, if the Commission approves the project, that approval conveys with it the right of eminent domain. Therefore, if easement negotiations fail to produce an agreement, the pipeline company could initiate condemnation proceedings where compensation would be determined in accordance with state law. SNG provided landowners with a fact sheet prepared by the FERC entitled ‘‘An Interstate Natural Gas Facility On My Land? What Do I Need To Know?’’. This fact sheet addresses a number of typically-asked questions, including the E:\FR\FM\24MYN1.SGM 24MYN1
