Type of Review: A new information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local or Tribal Govt. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 4,120. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 3,086. Abstract: The School Pulse Panel is a new study to collect extensive data on issues concerning the impact of the COVID–19 pandemic on students and staff in U.S. public primary, middle, high, and combined-grade schools. It will be one of the nation’s few sources of reliable data on a wealth of information focused on school reopening efforts, virus spread mitigation strategies, services offered for students and staff, and technology use, as reported by school district staff and principals in U.S. public schools. About 1,200 public elementary, middle, high, and combined-grade schools will be selected to participate in a panel where school and district staff will be asked to provide requested data monthly during the 2021–22 school years. This approach provides the ability to collect detailed information on various topics while also assessing changes in reopening efforts over time. Given the high demand for data collection during this time, the content of the survey may change on a quarterly basis. The School Pulse Panel is essentially a continuation of the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP) 2021 School Survey (OMB #1850–0957) that was fielded in the spring of 2021. That NAEP 2021 School Survey met the need of Executive Order 14000 by using an existing sample and survey instrument to quickly collect information on instructional mode offerings and enrollment counts of various subgroups of students using the various instructional modes.

Additional Information: NCES requests emergency clearance to allow us to comply with the January 21, 2021 Executive Order on Supporting the Reopening and Continuing Operation of Schools and Early Childhood Education Providers which states that the Department of Education must ‘‘coordinate with the Director of the Institute of Education Sciences to facilitate, consistent with applicable law, the collection of data necessary to fully understand the impact of the COVID–19 pandemic on students and educators, including data on the status of in-person learning. These data shall be disaggregated by student demographics, including race, ethnicity, disability, English-language-learner status, and free or reduced lunch status or other appropriate indicators of family income.’’ Normal clearance procedures would not allow IES to comply with the intent of this E.O. NCES will publish a Federal Register Notice soliciting 30 days of public comment on this collection concurrent with district and school recruitment. Dated: June 8, 2021.
