City of Holyoke Gas & Electric Department; Notice Soliciting Scoping Comments, 48218-48219 [2017-22414]

Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES 48218 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 199 / Tuesday, October 17, 2017 / Notices following issues: (1) Is this collection necessary to the proper functions of the Department; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the Department enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the Department minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology. Please note that written comments received in response to this notice will be considered public records. Title of Collection: Implementation of Title I/II–A Program Initiatives. OMB Control Number: 1850–0902. Type of Review: A reinstatement of a previously approved information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local, and Tribal Governments. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 770. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 821. Abstract: The second round of data collection for the Implementation of Title I/II–A Program Initiatives study will continue to examine the implementation of policies promoted through the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) at the state and district levels, in four core areas: School accountability and support for lowperforming schools, improving teacher and leader effectiveness, state content standards, and assessments. The first round of data collection for this study was conducted in Spring and Summer 2014. The purpose of this follow-up data collection is to provide policy makers with detailed information on the core policies promoted by Title I and Title II–A being implemented at the state and district levels, and the resources and supports they provide to schools and teachers. The timing of the data collection is critical to provide early information on the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) in the 2017–18 school year. This study will rely on information collected from existing sources, for which there are no respondents or burden, and on a set of revised state and district surveys based on the 2014 data collection in order to address the study’s research questions. Extant data sources include (a) the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) and (b) EDFacts data. The revised surveys of states and school districts will begin in March 2018. All respondents will have the opportunity to complete an electronic (e.g., web-based) survey (or paper VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:10 Oct 16, 2017 Jkt 244001 survey, if preferred). The survey respondents are described briefly below: State Surveys: The state survey will be sent to the chief state school officer in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The state surveys will be administered using an electronic instrument divided into modules corresponding to the four core areas. School District Surveys. The school district survey will be sent to school superintendents from the same nationally representative sample of 570 school districts that participated in the 2014 survey, as well as a new nationally representative sample of 149 charter school districts. The district survey will be web-based and modularized, corresponding to the four core areas, to allow for completion by one or multiple respondents. Dated: October 12, 2017.
