The Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) is announcing its intent to establish an Adequate Yearly Progress Negotiated Rulemaking Committee (Committee). The Committee will recommend revisions to the existing regulations for Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP). As required by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, the Secretary will select representatives of Indian tribes for the Committee from among individuals nominated by tribes whose students attend BIE-funded schools operated by either the Bureau or by the tribe through a contract or grant and who would be affected by a final rule. The BIE solicits comments on this proposal to establish the Committee, including comments on additional interests not identified in this notice of intent, and invites tribes to nominate representatives for membership on the Committee.
