Information Collection for IDEIA Part B and C Child Counts; Comment Request
As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act, the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE), U.S. Department of the Interior (Interior) is seeking comments on a proposed information collection related to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEIA). The IDEIA provides that the Secretary of the Interior will allocate funding for the coordination of assistance for special education and related services for American Indian children aged 0 to 5 with disabilities on reservations served by elementary schools for Indian children that are operated or funded by the Department of the Interior (``Bureau-funded schools''). The BIE allocates this funding to tribes and tribal organizations. In support of this allocation, the BIE collects information on the number of American Indian children aged 0 to 5 with disabilities on reservations served by Bureau-funded schools. This notice requests comments on that information collection.
