SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Full Text of Announcement I. Funding Opportunity Description Purpose of Program: The purpose of the Career Pathways Program funded through FIPSE is to develop technology- PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 based or technology-enabled career exploration systems that enable high school students to identify and explore career opportunities that align with their interests, ambitions, and aptitudes; learn from individuals who work in those fields about the nature of their work and opportunities available in their fields; and identify education and training options—including non-college programs such as work-based learning opportunities, military training, apprenticeships, and employersponsored training—that enable entry into or advancement in those careers. Career and education pathways exploration systems must include, for featured occupations, information about employment outlook and likely entry and mid-career earnings in featured fields, and they must enable students to use built-in financial analysis tools to explore the economic impact of their career, education, and training choices. Background: In FY 2020, Congress appropriated $24.5 million to FIPSE, including $10 million designated to the Career Pathways Program, to support the development of Career and Education Pathways Exploration Systems that will increase student awareness of the many career opportunities available to them and knowledge among students, educators, parents, and counselors about the many education and training pathways that provide entry to and advancement in those careers. These grants are intended to support the creation of scalable career exploration and guidance systems that help students identify their career interests; explore potential occupations that align with those interests; interact with individuals who work in particular jobs of interest to them, or with artificial intelligence or other interactive technologies in the fields of interest; consider the various education and training options (including non-college options, such as work-based learning, apprenticeships, employer-sponsored training, and military service) that enable entrance to and advancement in those occupations; and identify the attitudes, skills, and aptitudes necessary to be successful in those fields. Through this grant competition, we invite non-profit organizations with expertise in workforce development or career counseling, alone or in partnership with institutions of higher education (IHEs) or other non-profit agencies/organizations, trade associations, employers, States, and labor unions to develop, adapt, or expand career exploration and guidance systems that will enable students (and their parents) to engage in career exploration and education/training E:\FR\FM\09NON1.SGM 09NON1

* Note: As provided in 34 CFR 668.153(a)(2), the CELSA test is approved
  as the additional ATB English language proficiency test that must be
  taken by students whose native language is not English and who are not
  fluent in English if the academic program includes an ESL component.
** The ACCUPLACER test has been redesigned since it was listed as an
  approved test in the 2006 notice. TSI is a new addition to the list of
  approved ATB tests. These tests are provisionally approved. To move
  from provisional approval to full approval the test publisher must
  submit additional information as noted in the test agreement signed by
  the test publisher and the Department, no later than two years from
  the effective date of the agreement 6/26/2020. In the event the
  Department denies full approval, we will provide notice of this
  through publication in the Federal Register, pursuant to 34 CFR
  668.150(c)(3).

    List of ATB tests that are no longer approved: The following six 
tests appeared on the list of approved tests published in the 2006 
Federal Register notice, but are not on the current list of tests that 
may be used for the purpose of determining a student's eligibility for
