local educational agencies in Oklahoma and Montana for fiscal year 1997 
and 1998 funds under the Goals 2000: Educate America Act. The deadline

damage. The school district suffered damage to its facilities and was 
without electricity and water for days. During this period, school 
facilities served as a temporary shelter and a center for local 
assistance efforts. As a result of this disaster, district officials 
were unable to tend to usual business. The district has requested that 
the U.S. Department of education extend by one day the deadline for 
submission of its application for Goals 2000 funding. In light of the 
information provided by the district, the Assistant Secretary has 
extended until May 28, 1998 the deadline by which the Deer Creek--
Lamont School District may file an application for fiscal years 1997 
and 1998 Goals 2000 funding.

DATES: The new deadline for the applications from the Deer Creek--
Lamont School District is May 28, 1998.
