Title of Collection: National Public Education Financial Survey (NPEFS) 2019–2021: Common Core of Data (CCD). OMB Control Number: 1850–0067.

Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 5,334. Abstract: The National Public Education Financial Survey (NPEFS) is an annual collection of state-level finance data that has been included in the NCES Common Core of Data (CCD) since FY 1982 (school year 1981–82). NPEFS provides function expenditures by salaries, benefits, purchased services, and supplies, and includes federal, state, and local revenues by source. The NPEFS collection includes data on all state-run schools from the 50 states, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. NPEFS data are used for a wide variety of purposes, including to calculate federal program allocations such as states’ ‘‘average per-pupil expenditure’’ (SPPE) for elementary and secondary SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\30APN1.SGM 30APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 83 / Tuesday, April 30, 2019 / Notices education, certain formula grant programs (e.g. Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) as amended, Impact Aid, and Indian Education programs). Furthermore, in addition to using the SPPE data as general information on the financing of elementary and secondary education, the U.S. Department of Education Secretary uses these data directly in calculating allocations for certain formula grant programs, including, but not limited to, title I, part A, of the ESEA, Impact Aid, and Indian Education programs. Other programs, such as the Education for Homeless Children and Youth program under title VII of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, and the Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grants under title IV, part A of the ESEA make use of SPPE data indirectly because their formulas are based, in whole or in part, on State title I, part A, allocations. This request is to conduct the annual collection of state-level finance data for FY 2019–2021. Dated: April 25, 2019.

This meeting must be conducted in closed session because public disclosure of this information would likely have an adverse financial effect on the NAEP program by providing independent government cost estimates and proprietary contract costs of current NAEP contractors to the public. Discussion of this information would be likely to significantly impede implementation of a proposed agency action if conducted in open session. Such matters are protected by exemption 9(B) of section 552b of Title 5 U.S.C. The Executive Committee will reconvene in open session from 5:50 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.to take action on the NAEP Assessment Schedule.
