Title of Collection: Study of Enhanced College Advising in Upward Bound. OMB Control Number: 1850—NEW. Type of Review: A new information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals or households. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 1,400. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 468. Abstract: The Study of Enhanced College Advising in Upward Bound will test the effectiveness of providing Upward Bound projects with a professional development package and tools to provide semi-customized college advising to students participating in Upward Bound. Upward Bound projects will be invited to volunteer for the demonstration, and the first 200 projects to volunteer for the demonstration will be included. Volunteer projects will be randomly assigned so that half receive the staff training, materials, tools, and resources in the first wave (spring, summer, fall 2015), and the other half will receive the staff training, materials, tools, and resources in the second wave (summer and fall 2016). The study will follow students who participate in both groups of projects as 11th graders in the 2014– 2015 school year. The study will examine the impact of the demonstration on key outcomes including college application behavior, college acceptance and matriculation, and receipt of financial aid. This first of two ICRs for the study requests approval for the overall evaluation design, to collect 11th grade student rosters at each participating project in order to define the evaluation sample, and to administer the student baseline survey. A later ICR will request approval for other data collection, including a Project Director survey and a follow-up student survey. Dated: June 19, 2014.

Title of Collection: SURVEY ON THE USE OF FUNDS UNDER TITLE II, PART A (‘‘IMPROVING TEACHER QUALITY STATE GRANTS SUBGRANTS TO LEAS’’). OMB Control Number: 1810–0618. Type of Review: A revision of an existing information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Governments. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 850. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 4,850. Abstract: The Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended, provides funds to districts to improve the quality of their teaching and principal force and raise student achievement. These funds are provided to districts through Title II, Part A (Improving Teacher Quality State Grants Sub grants to Local Educational Agencies (LEA)). The purpose of this survey is for the U.S. Department of Education to have a better understanding of how districts use these funds. The survey also collects information on high-quality professional development in LEAs. In addition to the LEA survey, the package also includes a short survey for State Educational Agencies (SEA) that provides information on fiscal year allocations of Title II, Part A funds made to the LEAs selected for participation in the LEA survey. This OMB clearance request is to continue these analyses using a similar data collection instrument and sampling plan for the 2014–2015 school year and subsequent years. Minor changes to the LEA survey are requested. No changes to the State Educational Agency (SEA) survey are required. E:\FR\FM\25JNN1.SGM 25JNN1
