Title of Collection: High School and Beyond 2020 (HS&B:20) Base-Year FullScale Study Recruitment and Field Test Update. OMB Control Number: 1850–0944. Type of Review: A revision of an existing information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals or Households. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 53,503. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 35,635. Abstract: The High School and Beyond 2020 study (HS&B:20) will be the sixth in a series of longitudinal studies at the high school level conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), within the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) of the U.S. Department of Education. PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 36095 HS&B:20 will follow a nationally representative sample of ninth grade students from the start of high school in the fall of 2020 to the spring of 2024 when most will be in twelfth grade. A field test will be conducted one year prior to the full-scale study. The study sample will be freshened in 2024 to create a nationally representative sample of twelfth-grader students. A high school transcript collection and additional follow-up data collections beyond high school are also planned. The NCES secondary longitudinal studies examine issues such as students’ readiness for high school; the risk factors associated with dropping out of high school; high school completion; the transition into postsecondary education and access/choice of institution; the shift from school to work; and the pipeline into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). They inform education policy by tracking long-term trends and elucidating relationships among student, family, and school characteristics and experiences. HS&B:20 will follow the Middle Grades Longitudinal Study of 2017/18 (MGLS:2017) which followed the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten Class of 2010–11 (ECLS– K:2011), thereby allowing for the study of all transitions from elementary school through high school and into higher education and/or the workforce. HS&B:20 will include surveys of students, parents, students’ math teachers, counselors, and administrators, plus a student assessment in mathematics and reading and a brief hearing and vision test. The HS&B:20 Base-Year Full-Scale study (BYFS) will begin in the fall of 2020. The request to conduct the HS&B:20 Base-Year Field Test (BYFT) and the BYFS sampling and state, school district, school, and parent recruitment activities, both scheduled to begin in the fall of 2019, was approved in June 2019 (OMB# 1850–0944 v.1–2). These activities include collecting student rosters and selecting the BYFS sample. This request is to: (1) Add instruction to the BYFT student roster template; (2) add response options to BYFT school administrator questionnaire; (3) revise existing and add new BYFT recruitment materials; and (4) finalize the BYFS student session length. Approval for the base-year full scale study data collection will be requested in a separate submission in early 2020. E:\FR\FM\26JYN1.SGM 26JYN1
