Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 210 / Wednesday, October 30, 2013 / Notices Title of Collection: Survey of Principals of Rural Schools Receiving School Improvement Grants and Using the Transformation. OMB Control Number: 1850-New. Type of Review: A new information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals or households. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 221. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 58. Abstract: This study collects survey data from principals of schools that received federal School Improvement Grants (SIGs) in cohort 1 and implemented the school transformation model. Rural schools and districts often face steep challenges when trying to implement the kinds of staff replacement and on-site professional development practices required in the transformation model. By examining the implementation of the SIG transformation model in challenging rural settings, the study will produce findings that can help policymakers, rural schools, and their partners plan for school improvement. Our study will do this in two ways: (1) By asking principals to specify the extent to which the transformation activities were implemented and the challenges to implementation, and (2) by identifying which activities were supported by technical assistance providers and how sufficient principals found this support.

Type of Review: A revision of an existing information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals or households. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 29,355. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 12,532. Abstract: The 2012/14 Beginning Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Study (BPS:12/14), conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), is designed to follow a cohort of students who enroll in postsecondary education for the first time during the 2011–2012 academic year, irrespective of date of high school completion. The study collects data on student persistence in, and completion of, postsecondary education programs; their transition to employment; demographic characteristics; and changes over time in their goals, marital status, income, and debt, among other measures. Data from BPS are used to help researchers and policymakers better understand how financial aid influences persistence and completion, what percentages of students complete various degree programs, what early employment and wage outcomes are for certificate and degree attainers, and why students leave school. This request is to conduct the BPS:12/14 first follow-up, including panel maintenance, student interviews, and administrative record matching. NCES conducted the BPS:12/ 14 field test data collection in spring 2013, and this submission is for the full scale data collection. Dated: October 25, 2013.
