    Grants under this program may be used during the first 12 months

and, if appropriate, applying educational technology;

    (H) Such other activities, related to the purposes of this part, as 
the Secretary may approve.

Priorities

Absolute Priority
    The priority in the notice of final priority for this program, as 
published in the Federal Register on October 30, 1995 (60 FR 55246-
55247) and repeated below, applies to this competition.
    Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(3) and section 7115(a) of the Act, the 
Secretary gives an absolute preference to applications that meet the 
following priority. The Secretary funds under this competition only 
applications that meet this absolute priority:
    Projects that serve only LEAs in which the number of LEP students, 
in each LEA served, is at least 1,000 or at least 25 percent of the 
total student enrollment.
Invitational Priority
     Within the absolute priority specified in this notice, the 
Secretary is particularly interested in applications that meet the 
invitational priority in the next paragraph. However, an application 
that meets this invitational priority does not receive competitive or 
absolute preference over other applications (34 CFR 75.105(c)(1)).
    Applicants that consider the Department of Education Professional 
Development Principles in planning and designing a Systemwide 
Improvement Grant project.
    Those principles call for educator professional development that 
focuses on teachers as central to student learning, yet includes all 
other members of the school community; focuses on individual, 
collegial, and organizational improvement; respects and nurtures the 
intellectual and leadership capacity of teachers, principals, and 
others in the school community; reflects best available research and 
practice in teaching, learning, and leadership; enables teachers to 
develop further expertise in subject content, teaching strategies, uses 
of technologies, and other essential elements in teaching to high 
standards; promotes continuous inquiry and improvement embedded in the 
daily life of schools; is planned collaboratively by those who will 
participate in and facilitate that development; requires substantial 
time and other resources; is driven by a coherent long-term plan; is 
evaluated ultimately on the basis of its impact on teacher 
effectiveness and student learning; and uses this assessment to guide 
subsequent professional development efforts.

Notice to All Applicants

    Thank you for your interest in this program. The purpose of this 
enclosure is to inform you about a new provision in the Department of 
Education's General Education Provisions Act (GEPA) that applies to 
applicants for new grant awards under Department programs. This 
provision is section 427 of GEPA, enacted as part of the Improving 
America's Schools Act of 1994 (Pub. L. 103-382).

To Whom Does This Provision Apply?

    Section 427 of GEPA affects applicants for new discretionary grant 
awards under this program. ALL APPLICANTS FOR NEW AWARDS MUST INCLUDE 
INFORMATION IN THEIR APPLICATIONS TO ADDRESS THIS NEW PROVISION IN 
ORDER TO RECEIVE FUNDING UNDER THIS PROGRAM.

What Does This Provision Require?

    Section 427 requires each applicant for funds (other than an 
individual person) to include in its application a description of the 
steps the applicant proposes to take to ensure equitable access to, and 
participation in, its federally-assisted program for students, 
teachers, and other program beneficiaries with special needs.
    This section allows applicants discretion in developing the 
required description. The statute highlights six types of barriers that 
can impede equitable access or participation that you may address: 
gender, race, national origin, color, disability, or age. Based on 
local circumstances, you can determine whether these or other barriers 
may prevent your students, teachers, etc. from equitable access or 
participation. Your description need not be lengthy; you may provide a 
clear and succinct description of how you plan to address those 
barriers that are applicable to your circumstances. In addition, the 
information may be provided in a single narrative, or, if appropriate, 
may be discussed in connection with related topics in the application.
    Section 427 is not intended to duplicate the requirements of civil 
rights statutes, but rather to ensure that, in designing their 
projects, applicants for Federal funds address equity concerns that may 
affect the ability of certain potential beneficiaries to fully 
participate in the project and to achieve to high standards. Consistent 
with program requirements and its approved application, an applicant 
may use the Federal funds awarded to it to eliminate barriers it 
identifies.

What are Examples of How an Applicant Might Satisfy the Requirement of 
This Provision?

    The following examples may help illustrate how an applicant may 
comply with section 427.
    (1) An applicant that proposes to carry out an adult literacy 
project serving, among others, adults with limited English proficiency, 
might describe in its application how it intends to distribute a 
brochure about the proposed project to such potential participants in 
their native language.
    (2) An applicant that proposes to develop instructional materials 
for classroom use might describe how it will make the materials 
available on audio tape or in braille for students who are blind.
    (3) An applicant that proposes to carry out a model science program 
for secondary students and is concerned that girls may be less likely 
than boys to enroll in the course, might indicate how it tends to 
conduct ``outreach'' efforts to girls, to encourage their enrollment.
    We recognize that many applicants may already be implementing 
effective steps to ensure equity of access and participation in their 
grant programs, and we appreciate your cooperation in responding to the 
requirements of this provision.
Estimated Burden Statement
    According to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, no persons are 
required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a 
valid OMB control number. The valid OMB control number for this 
information collection is 1801-0004 (Exp. 8/31/98). The time required 
to complete this information collection is estimated to vary from 1 to 
3 hours per response, with an average of 1.5 hours, including the time 
to review instructions, search existing data resources, gather and 
maintain the data needed, and complete and review the information 
collection. If you have any comments concerning the
