The Secretary of Education requests comments on a modified 2008-2009 Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007 establishes, effective with the 2008- 2009 award year, the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant program, which provides up to $4,000 a year in grant assistance to students who plan on being a teacher and meet certain specified requirements. Through an updated FAFSA, Federal Student Aid will assure that students are aware of the TEACH Grant program, the program's eligibility criteria, and that students will indicate their plans to pursue a teaching career. The Department proposes to accomplish this by asking the following question on the FAFSA on the Web: ``Are you planning on completing coursework, now or in the future, necessary for you to become an elementary or secondary school teacher? A `YES' response to this question will allow your school to provide you with additional information on a new federal program for students who meet certain conditions and plan on becoming teachers.'' The FAFSA is completed by students and their families and the information submitted on the form is used to determine the students' eligibility and financial need for financial aid under the student financial assistance programs authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (Title IV, HEA Programs).
