Colored Federal airway A–15 is currently published from the Ethelda, BC, Canada, NDB to the Delta Junction, AK, NDB and will require deletion of the segment between the Haines, AK, NDB and the Beaver Creek, YT, NDB. The requested amended route will stop at the US/Canadian border and resume at Beaver Creek YT, NDB. Federal airway V–444 navigates from Barrow, AK, to the Burwash, YT, NDB, and the portion of the airway from the intersection of Northway 120° (M) 138° (T) and Gulkana 062° (M) 079° (T) to the Burwash, YT, NDB will require deletion. Federal airway J–502 currently navigates from Seattle, WA to Kotzebue, AK and will require amendment to remove the segment from an intersection at the US/Canadian border north of the Sister Island, AK, VORTAC to an intersection at the US/Canadian border southeast of Northway, AK, VORTAC. Federal airway J–511 currently navigates from Dillingham, AK, to Burwash Landing, YT. The segment of the route between Burwash Landing, YT, Canada and the intersection of Gulkana 078° radial; and Northway 137° will require deletion. The airway will terminate at the US/Canadian boundary. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend Federal airways A–15, V–444, J–502, and J–511 The proposed Federal airway actions are described below. A–15: A–15 currently extends between the Ethelda, BC, Canada, NDB and the Delta Junction, AK, NDB. This action proposes to remove the segment between the Intersection of Sisters Island 311° (M), 331° (T), and Whitehorse 189° (M), 207° (T) radials and Beaver Creek, YT, NDB. The unaffected portions of the existing route would remain as charted. V–444: V–444 currently extends between the Barrow, AK, NDB and the Burwash, YT, NDB. This action proposes to remove the segment between the intersection of the Northway 120° (M), 138 ° (T), and Gulkana 062° (M), 079° (T) and Burwash, YT, NDB. The unaffected portions of the existing route would VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:45 Jun 26, 2020 Jkt 250001 remain as charted. The portion within Canada is excluded. J–502: J–502 currently extends between Seattle, WA and Kotzebue, AK. The FAA proposes to remove the segment between the Intersection of Sisters Island 311° (M), 331° (T), and Whitehorse 189° (M), 207° (T) radials; and the Intersection of Northway 120° (M), 138° (T), and Gulkana 062° (M), 079° (T) radials. The unaffected portions of the existing route would remain as charted. J–511: J–511 currently extends between Dillingham, AK and Burwash Landing, YT, Canada, NDB. The FAA proposes to remove the segment between Gulkana, AK; and the intersection of Gulkana 078° (M), 102° (T) radial; and Northway 137° (M), 161° (T) radial. The unaffected portions of the existing route would remain as charted. Colored and Alaskan VOR Federal airways are published in paragraphs 6009 and 6010(b) and Jet routes are published in paragraph 2004, of FAA Order 7400.11D dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 2019, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Federal airways listed in this document will be subsequently published in the Order. FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. It, therefore: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under Department of Transportation (DOT) Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Environmental Review This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Procedures’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action.

Purpose of Program: The PN program is authorized under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESEA). The purpose of the PN program is to significantly improve the academic and developmental outcomes of children living in the most distressed communities of the United States, including ensuring school readiness, high school graduation, and access to a community-based continuum of highquality services. The program serves neighborhoods with high concentrations of low-income individuals; multiple signs of distress, which may include high rates of poverty, childhood obesity, academic failure, and juvenile delinquency, adjudication, or incarceration; and schools implementing comprehensive support and improvement activities or targeted support and improvement activities under section 1111(d) of the ESEA. All strategies in the continuum of solutions must be accessible to children with disabilities and English learners. Program Authority: 20 U.S.C. 7273– 7274. Proposed Priorities This document contains four proposed priorities. Background: Beginning in 2010, and in the FY 2017 competition, the PN program used absolute priorities for rural, Tribal, and non-rural, non-Tribal applicants to create three different funding slates. Multiple funding slates created a level playing field for different applicants by allowing applicants with similar challenges and circumstances to compete against one another. The three absolute priorities resulted in a mix of rural, Tribal, and non-rural, non-Tribal grantees. Over the years, the PN program has awarded 54 grants to urban communities, 13 grants to rural communities, and 6 grants to Tribal communities. Without multiple slates there would have been much fewer rural and Tribal grants. Therefore, in this document the Department proposes to establish priorities for non-rural, nonTribal and for Tribal communities under Proposed Priorities 1 and 2.

Background

    Due to the decommissioning of the Burwash, YT, Canada, NDB it 
requires amendment to Federal airways A-15, V-444, and jet routes J-502 
and J-511 to remove associated airway segments.
    Colored Federal airway A-15 is currently published from the 
Ethelda, BC, Canada, NDB to the Delta Junction, AK, NDB and will 
require deletion of the segment between the Haines, AK, NDB and the 
Beaver Creek, YT, NDB. The requested amended route will stop at the US/
Canadian border and resume at Beaver Creek YT, NDB.
    Federal airway V-444 navigates from Barrow, AK, to the Burwash, YT, 
NDB, and the portion of the airway from the intersection of Northway 
120[deg] (M) 138[deg] (T) and Gulkana 062[deg] (M) 079[deg] (T) to the 
Burwash, YT, NDB will require deletion.
    Federal airway J-502 currently navigates from Seattle, WA to 
Kotzebue, AK and will require amendment to remove the segment from an 
intersection at the US/Canadian border north of the Sister Island, AK, 
VORTAC to an intersection at the US/Canadian border southeast of 
Northway, AK, VORTAC.
    Federal airway J-511 currently navigates from Dillingham, AK, to 
Burwash Landing, YT. The segment of the route between Burwash Landing, 
YT, Canada and the intersection of Gulkana 078[deg] radial; and 
Northway 137[deg] will require deletion. The airway will terminate at 
the US/Canadian boundary.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend Federal airways A-15, V-444, J-
502, and J-511 The proposed Federal airway actions are described below.
    A-15: A-15 currently extends between the Ethelda, BC, Canada, NDB 
and the Delta Junction, AK, NDB. This action proposes to remove the 
segment between the Intersection of Sisters Island 311[deg] (M), 
331[deg] (T), and Whitehorse 189[deg] (M), 207[deg] (T) radials and 
Beaver Creek, YT, NDB. The unaffected portions of the existing route 
would remain as charted.
    V-444: V-444 currently extends between the Barrow, AK, NDB and the

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves 
an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
It, therefore: (1) Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under 
Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' under 
Department of Transportation (DOT) Regulatory Policies and Procedures 
(44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation 
of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. 
Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic 
procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule, 
when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Environmental Review

    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
