SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The mission of the Geography Division (GEO) within the Census Bureau is to plan, coordinate, and administer all geographic and cartographic activities needed to facilitate Census Bureau statistical programs throughout the United States and its territories. GEO manages programs that continuously update features, boundaries, addresses, and geographic entities in the Master Address File/Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing (MAF/TIGER) System. GEO, also, conducts research into geographic concepts, methods, and standards needed to facilitate Census Bureau data collection and dissemination programs. The Census Bureau is requesting a revision of a currently approved collection, to cover the annotation and verification phases of the 2015–2016 School District Review Program (SDRP). The Census Bureau requests a two-year clearance and a project specific Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number for SDRP. GEO, in coordination with OMB, is removing select programs from the generic Geographic Partnership Programs (GPPs) clearance to individual project specific clearance packages. A project specific clearance for SDRP will allow the Census Bureau to provide enhanced detail and ensure the two-year cycle is uninterrupted. The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) sponsors the SDRP, which enables the Census Bureau to create special tabulations of Decennial Census data by school district geography. The demographic data produced by the Census Bureau for the NCES and related to each school district is of vital importance for each state’s PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 allocation under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. The NCES identifies a Title I Coordinator, and the Census Bureau works with the NCES on assigning a Mapping Coordinator in each state to work with the Census Bureau to implement this work. The respondents for the SDRP are the Title I Coordinators and Mapping Coordinators from the fifty states and the District of Columbia. II. Method of Collection The SDRP invites respondent participation in two phases of the program: Annotation and Verification. As part of the 2015–2016 SDRP Annotation phase, the Mapping Coordinator in each state will receive a variety of materials from the Census Bureau to use in their review and update of school district boundaries, names, codes and geographic relationships. The Mapping Coordinators will use the Census Bureau’s MAF/TIGER Partnership Software (MTPS) and Census supplied spatial data in digital shapefile format to identify boundary changes for their school districts. As part of the Verification phase of the SDRP, Mapping Coordinators will have the opportunity to either use the MTPS with Census Bureau supplied Verification shapefiles, or the Census Crowdsourcing Tool (CCT) to review and verify that their submitted information was correctly captured by the Census Bureau. If a respondent finds cases where the Census Bureau did not incorporate their proposed submissions correctly, the respondent can tag and comment the area of issue and that information will become available to the Census Bureau for corrections. The Census Bureau conducts the SDRP every two years under agreement from the NCES of the U.S. Department of Education (ED). The Census Bureau invites state education officials to participate in the review and update of its national inventory of school district boundaries and district information. State education officials collaborate with local superintendents on their responses. The participants review and provide updates and corrections to the elementary, secondary, and unified school district names and Federal Local Education Agency (LEA) identification numbers, school district boundaries, and the grade ranges for which a school district is financially responsible. The participants submit updated digital spatial files back to the Census Bureau.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The mission of the Geography Division (GEO) within the Census 
Bureau is to plan, coordinate, and administer all geographic and 
cartographic activities needed to facilitate Census Bureau statistical 
programs throughout the United States and its territories. GEO manages 
programs that continuously update features, boundaries, addresses, and 
geographic entities in the Master Address File/Topologically Integrated 
Geographic Encoding and Referencing (MAF/TIGER) System. GEO, also, 
conducts research into geographic concepts, methods, and standards 
needed to facilitate Census Bureau data collection and dissemination 
programs.
    The Census Bureau is requesting a revision of a currently approved 
collection, to cover the annotation and verification phases of the 
2015-2016 School District Review Program (SDRP). The Census Bureau 
requests a two-year clearance and a project specific Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number for SDRP. GEO, in 
coordination with OMB, is removing select programs from the generic 
Geographic Partnership Programs (GPPs) clearance to individual project 
specific clearance packages. A project specific clearance for SDRP will 
allow the Census Bureau to provide enhanced detail and ensure the two-
year cycle is uninterrupted.
    The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) sponsors the 
SDRP, which enables the Census Bureau to create special tabulations of 
Decennial Census data by school district geography. The demographic 
data produced by the Census Bureau for the NCES and related to each 
school district is of vital importance for each state's allocation 
under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act as amended 
by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. The NCES identifies a Title I 
Coordinator, and the Census Bureau works with the NCES on assigning a 
Mapping Coordinator in each state to work with the Census Bureau to 
implement this work. The respondents for the SDRP are the Title I 
Coordinators and Mapping Coordinators from the fifty states and the 
District of Columbia.

II. Method of Collection

    The SDRP invites respondent participation in two phases of the 
program: Annotation and Verification. As part of the 2015-2016 SDRP 
Annotation phase, the Mapping Coordinator in each state will receive a 
variety of materials from the Census Bureau to use in their review and 
update of school district boundaries, names, codes and geographic 
relationships. The Mapping Coordinators will use the Census Bureau's 
MAF/TIGER Partnership Software (MTPS) and Census supplied spatial data 
in digital shapefile format to identify boundary changes for their 
school districts. As part of the Verification phase of the SDRP, 
Mapping Coordinators will have the opportunity to either use the MTPS 
with Census Bureau supplied Verification shapefiles, or the Census 
Crowdsourcing Tool (CCT) to review and verify that their submitted 
information was correctly captured by the Census Bureau. If a 
respondent finds cases where the Census Bureau did not incorporate 
their proposed submissions correctly, the respondent can tag and 
comment the area of issue and that information will become available to 
the Census Bureau for corrections.
    The Census Bureau conducts the SDRP every two years under agreement 
from the NCES of the U.S. Department of Education (ED). The Census 
Bureau invites state education officials to participate in the review 
and update of its national inventory of school district boundaries and 
district information. State education officials collaborate with local 
superintendents on their responses. The participants review and provide 
updates and corrections to the elementary, secondary, and unified 
school district names and Federal Local Education Agency (LEA) 
identification numbers, school district boundaries, and the grade 
ranges for which a school district is financially responsible. The 
participants submit updated digital spatial files back to the Census 
Bureau.
    The Census Bureau uses the updated school district information 
along with

the most current Census population and income data, current population 
estimates, and tabulations of administrative records data, to form the 
Census Bureau's estimates of the number of children aged five through 
seventeen in low-income families for each school district. These 
estimates of the number of children in low-income families residing 
within each school district are the basis of the funding allocation for 
each school district under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary 
Education Act as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001,
