OMB Control Number: 1810–0669. 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: 450. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 4,500. Abstract: Implemented under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, Title II, Part B, the Mathematics and Science Partnerships (MSP) program is a formula grant program strategically designed to improve the content knowledge of teachers and the academic performance of students in mathematics and science. By funding collaborative partnerships between science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) departments at institutions of higher education (IHEs), and high-need school districts, the MSP program enables the delivery of intensive, content-rich professional development intended to improve classroom instruction and, ultimately, to raise student achievement in math and science. Because MSP is a formula grant program, the size of individual state awards is based on student population and poverty rates, with no state receiving less than one half of one percent of the total appropriation. Each state is then responsible for administering a competitive grant making process to determine the distribution of funds across proposed MSP projects. The program office is PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 seeking to renew this collection to allow it to continue to collect Annual Performance Reports from those grantees that will need to seek a no cost extension.
