ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: Under section 1308(b)(2)(B) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act (Pub. L. 107–110) (ESEA, as amended), the Secretary is required to provide notice and seek public comment on the addition of any new proposed Minimum Data Elements (MDEs) for the Migrant Education Program (MEP). The Secretary proposes to add four new MDEs, and solicits public comments accordingly. SUMMARY: We must receive your comments on or before June 9, 2016.

If you use a telecommunications device for the deaf or a text telephone, call the Federal Relay Service, toll free, at 1–800–877–8339. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under section 1308(b)(1) of the ESEA, as amended, the Secretary is required to assist States in the electronic transfer of student records. The Secretary assists States with this transfer through the Migrant Student Information Exchange (MSIX) system, which links State migratory student databases to support records transfer. Under section 1308(b)(2)(A) of the ESEA, as amended, the Secretary is further required to determine the health and education information that States must exchange regarding migratory students. MSIX supports the exchange of this information in the form of required MDEs. When the Secretary proposes to add new MDEs, section 1308(b)(2)(B) of the ESEA, as amended, requires the Secretary to consult with States and publish a notice in the Federal Register seeking public comment on proposed new MDEs. The Department has previously sought public input on the collection of 72 MDEs (78 FR 79222, Dec. 27, 2013), and in this notice now proposes to add four new MDEs: Residency Verification Date; Graduation/High School Equivalency (HSE) Indicator; Graduation/HSE Date; and Algebra I Flag. We have already held multiple consultations with States regarding the addition of these four MDEs, and no State official or staff expressed opposition during these various consultations. First, we vetted the MDEs with the MSIX State User Group for Analysis and Recommendations over the course of several years, from 2012 through the present. Second, on October 1, 2012, and November 5, 2014, the Department conducted webinars with the MEP Coordination Workgroup, which is comprised of MEP State Directors from the nine MEP regions PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 throughout the Nation. The MEP Coordination Workgroup supported the addition of the four MDEs and corresponding definitions. Third, we presented these MDEs to all of the MEP State Directors on February 11, 2014, during the Annual Directors’ Meeting in Washington, DC. The MEP State Directors did not express any opposition to the addition of these MDEs since States already collect this information, in some form or another, in their migrant-specific databases. Finally, we have worked with 22 States on an MSIX Data Quality Initiative (DQI). Through the DQI process, we discussed the need for and use of these new MDEs in greater detail with MEP State Directors and their staff in these 22 States. Once again, no State official or staff expressed opposition to the addition of these four new MDEs. Overall, MEP State Directors agreed that the inclusion of the first three MDEs—Residency Verification Date, and Graduation/HSE Indicator and Date—would support MSIX’s ability to provide a more consistent accounting of children eligible to receive MEP services. Our conversations with State officials and staff indicate that the States collect these data in their migrantspecific databases to assist in determining eligibility for the MEP. The addition of these three MDEs would allow MSIX, like the State migratory student-specific databases, to more accurately determine who is eligible for the MEP, which in turn would improve the accuracy of information in MSIX reports related to enrollment, placement, and credit accrual that States use on a daily basis. These three new MDEs would also enable MSIX to account for eligible migratory children not enrolled in school and for migratory children who have graduated or obtained their high school equivalency diplomas. The fourth proposed MSIX MDE would allow schools to better target math courses for newly arrived migratory students by taking course information that States already collect and highlighting it in MSIX. Inclusion of this MDE would promote better education for migratory students. The Department now seeks additional public comment on the following four proposed MDEs: • Residency Verification Date: This element would reflect the month, day, and year in which a school or MEP project confirms a migratory student’s residency. States or local operating agencies (LOAs) currently collect this information once during the September 1–August 31 performance period to verify student eligibility for MEP E:\FR\FM\25MYN1.SGM 25MYN1
