Under the Reading First program, we award Targeted Assistance Grants to State educational agencies (SEAs) that demonstrate an increase in student achievement in schools and districts participating in the Reading First program. As discussed elsewhere in this notice, the data that States must submit to demonstrate an increase in student achievement are the same data that States must submit in their annual performance reports for their Reading First State grants. We are therefore permitting States to apply for Targeted Assistance Grants by submitting their annual Reading First performance reports. No separate application is required. This notice establishes July 31, 2006 as the deadline date for submitting the annual performance report to apply for a Targeted Assistance Grant. Application Deadline: July 31, 2006.
