SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 30, 2013, the Coast published a notice of temporary deviation from regulation in the Federal Register (78 FR 6208–6209). C.E.C., Inc, on behalf of the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LDOTD) has requested a temporary deviation in order to perform maintenance on the State Route 23 (LA 23) vertical lift span bridge, also known as the Judge Perez Bridge, across the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (Algiers Alternate Route), mile 3.8, at Belle Chasse, Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. Now, C.E.C, on behalf of LDOTD has requested to adjust the dates of the impending closure forward one day to better serve the general public with the proposed closure. The modification of the schedule has been vetted with waterway users and no objections were received with regards to the proposed change in schedule. This modified deviation will still allow the bridge to remain closed to navigation for eight consecutive days in order to perform scheduled maintenance, but the start date is now February 23, 2013, and the end date is now March 3, 2013.

ACTION: Final priorities, requirements, definitions, and selection criteria. AGENCY: The Assistant Deputy Secretary for Innovation and Improvement announces priorities, requirements, definitions, and selection criteria under the Supporting Effective Educator Development (SEED) program. The Assistant Deputy Secretary may use one or more of these priorities, requirements, definitions, and selection criteria for competitions fiscal year (FY) 2013 and later years. We take this action to help national not-for-profit organizations build evidence on how best to recruit, train, and support effective teachers and school leaders; recruit and prepare effective science, technology, engineering, and mathematics teachers; and invest in efforts that increase student achievement by improving teacher and principal effectiveness. DATES: These priorities, requirements, definitions, and selection criteria are effective March 14, 2013.

Program Authority: Department of Education Appropriations Act, 2012 (Pub. L. 112–74, Title III, Division F). We published a notice of proposed priorities, requirements, definitions, and selection criteria (NPP) for this program in the Federal Register on September 4, 2012 (77 FR 53819). That notice contained background information and our reasons for proposing the particular priorities, requirements, definitions, and selection criteria. These final priorities, requirements, definitions, and selection criteria contain some changes from the NPP. We fully explain these changes in the Analysis of Comments and Changes section in this notice. Public Comment: In response to our invitation in the NPP, 18 parties submitted comments on the proposed priorities, requirements, definitions, and selection criteria. Analysis of Comments and Changes: An analysis of the comments and any changes in the priorities, requirements, definitions, and selection criteria since publication of the NPP follows. Eligibility Comment: Several commenters requested that the Department alter the eligibility criteria to allow more types of entities to apply for a SEED program grant. One commenter recommended that we allow applications from large local educational agencies (LEAs) or LEAs with large numbers of students in poverty. Three commenters recommended that we allow applications from local, State, or regional not-for-profit organizations. Discussion: We agree that other entities, including LEAs and local, State, and regional not-for-profit organizations, have expertise in preparing and supporting teachers and principals. However, the legislation that governs the SEED program allows for awards only to national not-for-profit organizations. Consequently, while eligible national not-for-profit applicants may partner with LEAs and local, State, and regional not-for-profit organizations to carry out their projects, the Department does not have the authority to award a SEED program grant to other types of entities. Change: None. Priorities Comment: One commenter supported our focus on high-need students but also requested that we add a priority on recruiting, developing, and retaining PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 9815 educators from underrepresented backgrounds to increase teacher success. Discussion: We agree with the commenter on the importance of recruiting and developing educators from diverse backgrounds who reflect the backgrounds of their students. We have made this commitment explicit in option (b) of priority 4, Promoting Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Education, which requires applicants to demonstrate how they will increase the number of individuals from groups traditionally underrepresented in STEM. We also believe that priorities 1, 2, 3, and 5 provide applicants with the flexibility to identify strategies, including those that focus on recruiting and supporting teachers and principals from underrepresented backgrounds, to improve teacher and principal effectiveness for the targeted students and schools. For these reasons, we decline to add another priority specifically focused on recruiting, developing, and retaining teachers and principals from underrepresented groups. Change: None. Comment: Several commenters recommended that the Department identify certain priorities as absolute or competitive. Discussion: The Department generally does not designate priorities as absolute or competitive as part of a notice of final priorities, requirements, definitions, and selection criteria in order to maintain maximum flexibility in how we use the priorities in future competitions. For each future competition, we will designate priorities as absolute or competitive in the notice inviting applications. Change: None. Comment: One commenter recommended that we specifically cite assessment literacy—that is, the understanding and use of assessment data—as a required competency for teachers and principals in the priorities and as one of the measures in the definitions of ‘‘highly effective teacher’’ and ‘‘highly effective principal.’’ Additionally, the commenter recommended that we require applicants to evaluate assessment literacy predominantly based on performance, including classroom observations and artifact reviews, and that we require applicants to use a minimum of three years of data in measuring student growth as an indicator of teacher effectiveness. Discussion: While we agree that it is important for teachers and principals to understand and use data and assessment E:\FR\FM\12FER1.SGM 12FER1
