SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of Education (ED), in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)), provides the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed, revised, and continuing collections of information. This helps the Department assess the impact of its information collection requirements and minimize the public’s reporting burden. It also helps the public understand the Department’s information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format. ED is soliciting comments on the proposed information collection request (ICR) that is described below. The Department of Education is especially interested in public comment addressing the 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: Impact Study of Federally-Funded Magnet Schools. OMB Control Number: 1850—NEW. Type of Review: A new information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals or Households. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 179. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 265. Abstract: This Office of Management and Budget (OMB) package requests clearance for data collection activities to support a rigorous Impact Study of Federally-Funded Magnet Schools. The Institute of Education Sciences (IES) at the U.S. Department of Education (ED) PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 has contracted with Mathematica Policy Research and its subcontractor, Social Policy Research Associates (SPR), to conduct this evaluation (ED–IES–17–C– 0066). The evaluation includes an initial feasibility assessment, to determine whether an impact study can be conducted appropriately. First, the study team will interview fiscal year (FY) 2016 and 2017 Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MSAP) grantee districts and schools to gather detailed information on student recruitment and admissions policies and practices, paying particular attention to the use of randomized lotteries for student admissions. The feasibility phase will result in a brief describing how MSAPfunded schools recruit and select students for admission, a topic of interest to the program office. Second, if a sufficient number of students are being admitted to these schools through lotteries, the impact study will collect survey data from principals and district administrative records on admissions lotteries and student progress. The study would use these data to estimate the impacts of magnet schools on student achievement and diversity and to describe whether particular features of magnet schools are associated with greater success.

Finally, the UOCAVA mandates that the FVAP work with the EAC and State Chief Election officials to develop standards for reporting UOCAVA voting information (52 U.S.C. 20302) and that the FVAP will store the reported data and present the findings within the congressionallymandated report to the President and Congress. Additionally, UOCAVA requires that ‘‘not later than 90 days after the date of each regularly scheduled general election for Federal office, each State and unit of local government which administered the election shall (through the State, in the case of a unit of local government) submit a report to the EAC on the combined number of absentee ballots transmitted to absent uniformed services voters and overseas voters for the election and the combined number of such ballots which were returned by such voters and cast in the election, and shall make such a report available to the general public.’’ States that complete and timely submit the UOCAVA section of the survey to the EAC will fulfill their UOCAVA reporting requirement under PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2441 52 U.S.C. 20302.

Needs and Uses

    The EAC issues the survey to meet its obligations under the Help 
America Vote Act (HAVA) to serve as national clearinghouse and resource 
for the compilation of information with respect to the administration 
of Federal elections; to fulfill both the EAC and FVAP's data 
collection requirements under the UOCAVA; and meet its NVRA mandate to 
collect information from states concerning the impact of that statute 
on the administration of Federal Elections. HAVA requires the EAC to 
serve as a national clearinghouse and resource for the compilation of 
information and review of procedures with respect to the administration 
of Federal Elections. This includes the obligation to study and report 
on election activities, practices, policies, and procedures, such as 
methods of voter registration, methods of conducting provisional 
voting, poll worker recruitment and training, and such other matters as 
the Commission determines are appropriate. In addition, under the NVRA, 
the EAC is responsible for collecting information and reporting, 
biennially, to the United States Congress on the impact of that 
statute. The information the States are required to submit to the EAC 
for purposes of the NVRA report are found under Title 11 of the Code of 
Federal Regulations.
    States that respond to questions in this survey concerning voter 
registration related matters will meet their NVRA reporting 
requirements under 52 U.S.C. 20508 and EAC regulations. Finally, the 
UOCAVA mandates that the FVAP work with the EAC and State Chief 
Election officials to develop standards for reporting UOCAVA voting 
information (52 U.S.C. 20302) and that the FVAP will store the reported 
data and present the findings within the congressionally-mandated 
report to the President and Congress. Additionally, UOCAVA requires 
that ``not later than 90 days after the date of each regularly 
scheduled general election for Federal office, each State and unit of 
local government which administered the election shall (through the 
State, in the case of a unit of local government) submit a report to 
the EAC on the combined number of absentee ballots transmitted to 
absent uniformed services voters and overseas voters for the election 
and the combined number of such ballots which were returned by such 
voters and cast in the election, and shall make such a report available 
to the general public.'' States that complete and timely submit the 
UOCAVA section of the survey to the EAC will fulfill their UOCAVA 
reporting requirement under 52 U.S.C. 20302. In order to fulfill the 
above requirements, the EAC is seeking information relating to the 
period from the Federal general election day 2016 +1 through the 
November 2018 Federal general election. The EAC will provide the data 
regarding UOCAVA voting to FVAP after data collection is completed. 
This data sharing reduces burden on local election offices because FVAP 
does not have to conduct its own data collection to meet its reporting 
requirements.
