Charter Schools Program (CSP)
Document Number: E7-12544
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-06-28
Agency: Department of Education
On June 20, 2007, we published in the Federal Register (72 FR 33986) a notice inviting applications for new awards for two fiscal year (FY) 2007 competitions under the Charter Schools Program (CFDA 84.282B and CFDA 84.282C). That notice incorrectly included Alaska, Missouri, and New Hampshire in the list of States that currently have approved applications under the CSP. Non-State educational agency (Non- SEA) eligible applicants in States that currently have approved applications under the CSP are ineligible to apply under these competitions and must contact the SEA for information related to the State's CSP subgrant competition. Because Alaska, Missouri, and New Hampshire do not currently have approved applications under the CSP, non-SEA eligible applicants from these three states are, in fact, eligible to apply directly to the Department for CSP grants under these competitions. For these reasons, we are removing Alaska, Missouri, and New Hampshire from the list of States that currently have approved applications under the CSP. The Note on page 33986, in the third column, under III. Eligibility Information, 1. Eligible Applicants: Planning and Initial Implementation (CFDA No. 84.282B) is corrected to read as follows:

IES has been collaborating with the Department's Office of Postsecondary Education (OPE) to coordinate the study of the impacts of the Upward Bound program on higher-risk students and students as a whole. The study will address the following questions: (1) What are the impacts of Upward Bound on student outcomes including course taking, grades received, test scores, retention in high school, college preparation services received, and college and career expectationsboth overall and for higher-risk students? (2) Does the impact of Upward Bound vary according to grantee practices and characteristics, such as the ratio of higher-risk students to total students served by the grantee? (3) Does there appear to be a relationship between program impacts and control group students' receipt of similar services, such as tutoring, mentoring, after-school and summer enrichment programs, and college application and financial aid assistance? The system will contain information about approximately 3,600 students applying for admission at approximately 90 Upward Bound grantees for the 2007-2008 academic year, of which approximately 1,800 will have been offered admission to Upward Bound and 1,800 will serve as a control group for the purposes of this evaluation. These students will be in either 9th or 10th grade during the 2007-2008 academic year. The Upward Bound grantees included in the evaluation will be a sample of all Upward Bound grantees. The system of records will include information about these sampled students, including their names, addresses, demographic information such as race/ethnicity, gender, age, and educational background, attitudes toward school, and educational aspirations.
