OMB Control Number: 1850–0942. Type of Review: An extension without change of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals and Households. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 12. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 80. Abstract: This study is authorized by Section 8601 of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which tasks the U.S. Department of Education with conducting evaluations to build the PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30311 evidence base in education. Finding creative ways to redeploy existing teachers in the classroom may yield academic benefits to students at little cost. One such strategy is departmentalized instruction, where each teacher specializes in teaching certain subjects to multiple classes of students instead of teaching all subjects to a single class of students (selfcontained instruction). While nearly ubiquitous in secondary schools, departmentalization has only recently become more popular in upper elementary grades. This evaluation is examining the implementation and outcomes of teachers and students as they departmentalize in fourth and fifth grades. In doing so, it will generate valuable evidence on an improvement strategy that low-performing elementary schools identified under ESSA may consider adopting. Dated: June 2, 2021.
