The Assistant Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education announces the addition of an eighth absolute priority to the seven current absolute priorities for the Migrant Education Program (MEP) Consortium Incentive Grant (CIG) program established in the notice of final requirements published in the Federal Register on March 3, 2004 (69 FR 10110) (March 2004 notice). The Assistant Secretary may use this proposed absolute priority and the absolute priorities established in the March 2004 notice for competitions in fiscal year (FY) 2008 and later years. We take this action to give State educational agencies (SEAs) the option to propose consortium arrangements that address the educational attainment needs of out-of-school migratory youth whose education is interrupted.
