Additionally, the ICF gives NOAA the opportunity to provide early feedback and guidance on an application package, lowering the likelihood of time-consuming rewrites and edits to an application before it can be deemed complete. Therefore, the ICF can save significant time for industry and private entities, as well as government time. The optional Data Availability Notification (DAN) information includes contact information and general data availability information. The DAN may be submitted electronically through the NOAA website during the application process, while an applicant holds a license, or by any interested party. The DAN information received is used to help determine the availability of unenhanced data from a foreign or domestic remote sensing system, which may then be compared to unenhanced data produced by an applicant’s system for the purpose of adjusting the conditions and/or restrictions in a license. The DAN form ensures that only required information is submitted, thereby reducing unnecessary paperwork and/or follow-up correspondence. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES II.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This is a request for an extension of an existing information 
collection.
    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Office 
of Education is sponsoring data collection efforts on its Bay Watershed 
Education and Training (B-WET) program. The NOAA B-WET program is 
authorized under 33 U.S.C. 893a(a), the America COMPETES Act. The 
Administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is 
authorized to conduct, develop, support, promote, and coordinate formal 
and informal educational activities at all levels to enhance public 
awareness and understanding of ocean, coastal, Great Lakes, and 
atmospheric science and stewardship by the general public and other 
coastal stakeholders, including underrepresented groups in ocean and 
atmospheric science and policy careers. B-WET advances NOAA's mission 
by awarding education grants that foster an environmentally literate 
citizenry who have the knowledge, attitudes, and skills needed to 
protect watersheds and related ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes 
ecosystems. B-WET currently funds projects in seven regions 
(California, Chesapeake Bay, Great Lakes, Gulf of Mexico, Hawaii, New 
England, and the Pacific Northwest).
    To ensure that educational activities funded by B-WET are of the 
highest quality, and maximize federal resources,

[[Page 7158]]

B-WET has created an across-region, internal evaluation system to 
provide ongoing monitoring of program implementation and to identify 
opportunities for improved program outcomes. The evaluation system is 
maintained by B-WET staff with occasional assistance from an outside 
contractor. The evaluation system collects information from B-WET 
program-funded project participants.
    B-WET awardees of grants or cooperative agreements, and the 
awardees' teachers who attend professional development programs 
provided by the awardees, are asked to voluntarily complete online 
survey forms to provide data for the evaluation system. Information 
collected from awardees includes program elements such as program 
duration, format, audience, location, support and/or materials offered, 
and topics covered. Information collected from teacher professional 
development participants includes teaching methodologies, program 
satisfaction, program coverage, suggestions for improvement, and 
teaching confidence. Information collected from teachers at the end of 
the school year following their participation in a professional 
development program includes time spent teaching topics covered in the 
professional development program, types of activities used with their 
students, teachers' perceptions of student learning, and teaching 
practices utilized. One individual from each awardee organization is 
asked to complete a survey once per year of the award, and the teacher 
participants are asked to complete one survey at the end of their 
professional development program and another survey at the end of the 
following school year. Responses to the survey questions are aggregated 
and analyzed as part of ongoing evaluation efforts.
    Based on a review of annual evaluation system results, B-WET has 
made program improvements by adjusting its Federal Notice of Funding 
Opportunities and program guidelines. On-going data collection enables 
NOAA to monitor program implementation and outcomes on a regular basis 
and supports adaptive management of the program.
