1:00 p.m. to discuss secure item information for the NAEP Reading 
Assessment. This meeting must be conducted in closed session because 
the secure items have not been released 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.
    R&D and COSDAM will meet in open sessions from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00

Reading and Mathematics assessments for Grades 4 and 8. This meeting 
must be conducted in closed session as results from the 2019 NAEP 
Reading and Mathematics assessments have not been released to the 
public. Public disclosure of secure data would significantly impede 
implementation of the NAEP assessment program if conducted in open 
session. Such matters are protected by exemption 9(B) of Sec.  552b(c) 
of Title 5 of the United States Code.

the NAEP Assessment Schedule and Budget. The discussions will involve a 
briefing on confidential contract costs via-a-vis independent 
government cost estimates for assessing NAEP subjects on the recently 
approved NAEP Assessment Schedule. Public disclosure of independent 
government cost estimates, proprietary contract costs, and internal 
NAEP budget decisions would significantly impede implementation of the 
NAEP assessment program if conducted in open session. Such matters are 
protected by exemption 9(B) of Sec.  552b(c) of Title 5 of the United 
States Code.
    Following the closed session, the Governing Board will meet in open 
session from 9:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. to receive reports from its
