OMB Control Number: 1850–0956. Type of Review: A revised information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals or Households. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 50,294. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 35,443. Abstract: The NAEP 2021 School and Teacher Questionnaire Special Study is collecting data necessary to fully understand the impact of the COVID–19 pandemic on schools and educators. A previous emergency clearance (OMB#1850–0957) in February 2021 allowed work on the NAEP 2021 School Survey to begin. The NAEP 2021 School Survey is a monthly collection of data from 3,500 schools that gathers information about opening status E:\FR\FM\24MRN1.SGM 24MRN1 15660 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 55 / Wednesday, March 24, 2021 / Notices (ranging from fully in-person to fully remote), the hours of instruction for students, and how enrollment and attendance rates vary by a number of social stratifying factors including race/ ethnicity, socio-economic status, English learner status, and disability status. The work proposed in this package, the NAEP 2021 School and Teacher Questionnaire Special Study, is a more in-depth data collection. Although it will collect data only once, it allows NCES a deeper and richer understanding of how schools and teachers are faring while operating during a pandemic. Because the instruments are very much the same as the instruments used during every administration of NAEP, the data collected will also allow us to better understand trends in schools across and through the global coronavirus pandemic. In addition, a summative report will be provided at the end of the collection, relating the results to those from the NAEP 2021 School Survey. Dated: March 18, 2021.
