FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For specific questions related to collection activities, please contact Evan Skloot, 202–453–6515. 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: State Education Agency, Local Educational Agency, and School Data Collection and Reporting under ESEA, Title I, Part A. OMB Control Number: 1810–0581. Type of Review: A revision of an existing information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local, and Tribal Governments. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 17,022. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 293,152. Abstract: Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (ESSA), contains several provisions that require State education agencies (SEAs), local educational agencies (LEAs), and schools to collect and disseminate information. The Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) covers these activities. The previous authorization of the ESEA contained information collection requirements which are currently approved by OMB under control number 1810–0581. Congress approved a joint resolution on March 9, 2017 disapproving the U.S. Department of Education’s (Department’s) regulations related to State plans, statewide accountability systems, and data reporting. The burden changes reflected in this revision renewal data collection are a result of this joint resolution and reflect only the requirements of the statute. The requirement to produce a State and LEA report card remains unchanged under this revision renewal and most of the work to produce the report cards is the same. There are some requirements that were in the regulations that are not required due to the joint resolution. As a result, the burden estimate is slightly lower under this revision renewal. SEAs, LEAs, and schools collect and disseminate the information to carry out the reporting requirements of Title I of the ESEA. The information is used to facilitate compliance with statutory requirements and to provide information to school communities (including parents), LEAs, SEAs and the Department regarding activities required under Title I of the ESEA.

Title of Collection: Institutional Disclosures for Distance Education or Correspondence Programs. OMB Control Number: 1845–0145. Type of Review: An extension of an existing information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local, and Tribal Governments; Private Sector Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 3,588. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 152,405. Abstract: The Department of Education (Department) requests an extension without change to the information collection tied to 34 CFR part 668.50 requiring institutional disclosures for distance education and correspondence courses. This regulatory action establishes requirements for institutional disclosures to prospective and enrolled students in programs offered solely through distance education or correspondence courses, which the Department believes will protect students by providing them with important information that may influence their attendance in distance education programs or correspondence courses as well as improve the efficacy of State-based consumer protections for students. Since distance education may involve multiple States, institutional and program authorization requirements among States may differ, and students may be unfamiliar with or fail to receive information about complaint processes, licensure requirements, or other requirements of authorities in States in which they do not reside. The final regulations, based on the 2019 negotiated rulemaking, will rescind the requirements of § 668.50 in its entirety. While the Secretary is exercising her authority to allow for early implementation of the rescission of this section, the final rule and the rescission will not fully take place until July 1, 2020. The Department is asking to extend the current burden assessment until the effective date of the change and at that time a discontinuation request will be filed. Dated: December 17, 2019.
