coordinating center for institutions of higher education that offer 
inclusive comprehensive transition and postsecondary programs for 
students with intellectual disabilities, including institutions that 
have grants authorized under the Transition Programs for Students with 
Intellectual Disabilities into Higher Education (TPSID) program (CFDA 
84.407A) (www2.ed.gov/programs/tpsid/index.html).
    Priority: We are establishing this priority for the FY 2010 grant 
competition and any subsequent year in which we make awards from the 
list of unfunded applicants from this competition, in accordance with 
section 437(d)(1) of the General Education Provisions Act (GEPA), 20 
U.S.C. 1232(d)(1).
    Absolute Priority: This priority is an absolute priority. Under 34 
CFR 75.105(c)(3) we consider only applications that meet his priority.
    This priority is:

center for institutions of higher education that offer inclusive 
comprehensive transition and postsecondary programs for students with 
intellectual disabilities. The coordinating center must provide these 
programs with recommendations related to the development of standards, 
technical assistance, and evaluations. The coordinating center is 
required to:

transition and postsecondary programs for students with intellectual 
disabilities;
    (2) Provide technical assistance regarding the development, 
evaluation, and continuous improvement of such programs;
    (3) Develop a Department-approved evaluation protocol for such 
programs that includes qualitative and quantitative methodologies for 
measuring student outcomes and program strengths in the areas of 
academic enrichment, socialization, independent living, and competitive 
or supported employment, including whether students obtain gainful 
employment in an integrated setting once they have received a 
credential;
    (4) Assist recipients that have grants authorized under the TPSID 
program in efforts to award a meaningful credential to students with 
intellectual disabilities upon the completion of such programs, which 
credential must take into consideration unique State factors and meet 
criteria developed by the center and approved by the Department;
    (5) Develop recommendations for the necessary components of such 
programs, such as--
    (i) Academic, vocational, social, and independent living skills;
    (ii) Evaluation of student progress;
    (iii) Program administration and evaluation;
    (iv) Student eligibility; and
    (v) Issues regarding the equivalency of a student's participation 
in such programs to semester, trimester, quarter, credit, or clock 
hours at an institution of higher education;
    (6) Analyze possible funding streams for such programs and provide 
recommendations regarding the funding streams;
    (7) Develop model memoranda of agreement for use between or among 
institutions of higher education and State and local agencies providing 
funding for such programs;
    (8) Develop mechanisms for regular communication, outreach, and 
dissemination of information about comprehensive transition and 
postsecondary programs for students with intellectual disabilities to 
those institutions that have grants authorized under the TPSID program 
and to families and prospective students;
    (9) Host a meeting of all recipients of grants authorized under the 
TPSID program not less often than once each year;
    (10) Convene a workgroup to develop and recommend model criteria, 
standards, and components of such programs as described in paragraph 
(5) that are appropriate for the development of accreditation 
standards, which workgroup must include--

Department of Education, National Institute on Disability and 
Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR), and the Consortium for Postsecondary 
Programs for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities, a National 
Training Initiative of the Administration on Developmental Disabilities 
(ADD), and any future centers dedicated to this issue.
    Applicable Statutory Definition:
    Comprehensive transition and postsecondary program for students 
with intellectual disabilities (section 760(1) of the HEA).
    The term ``comprehensive transition and postsecondary program for 
students with intellectual disabilities'' means a degree, certificate, 
or nondegree program that meets each of the following:
    (A) Is offered by an institution of higher education.
    (B) Is designed to support students with intellectual disabilities 
who are seeking to continue academic, career and technical, and 
independent living instruction at an institution of higher education in 
order to prepare for gainful employment.
    (C) Includes an advising and curriculum structure.
    (D) Requires students with intellectual disabilities to participate 
on not less than a half-time basis as determined by the institution, 
with such participation focusing on academic components, and occurring 
through one or more of the following activities:
    (i) Regular enrollment in credit-bearing courses with nondisabled 
students offered by the institution.
    (ii) Auditing or participating in courses with nondisabled students 
offered by the institution for which the

[[Page 38507]]

student does not receive regular academic credit.
    (iii) Enrollment in noncredit-bearing, nondegree courses with 
nondisabled students.
    (iv) Participation in internships or work-based training in 
settings with nondisabled individuals.
    (E) Requires students with intellectual disabilities to be socially 
and academically integrated with nondisabled students to the maximum 
extent possible.
    Waiver of Proposed Rulemaking: Under the Administrative Procedure 
Act (5 U.S.C. 553) the Department generally offers interested parties 
the opportunity to comment on proposed priorities and requirements. 
Section 437(d)(1) of the GEPA, however, allows the Secretary to exempt 
from rulemaking requirements regulations governing the first grant 
competition under a new or substantially revised program authority. 
This is the first grant competition for this program under section 
777(b) of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA), 20 U.S.C. 
1140q(b) and therefore qualifies for this exemption. In order to ensure 
timely grant awards, the Secretary has decided to forego public comment 
on the priority and the requirement in paragraph (b) under section 
III.1. Eligible Applicants. This priority and requirement will apply to 
the FY 2010 grant competition and any subsequent year in which we make 
awards from the list of unfunded applicants from this competition.
    Program Authority: 20 U.S.C. 1140q(b).
    Applicable Regulations: The Education Department General 
Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) in 34 CFR parts 74, 75, 77, 79, 82, 
84, 85, 86, 97, 98, and 99.

    Note:  The regulations in 34 CFR part 79 apply to all applicants 
except Federally recognized Indian tribes.



    Note: The regulations in 34 CFR part 86 apply to institutions of 
higher education only.

    4. Performance Measures: The Government Performance and Results Act 
(GPRA) of 1993 directs Federal departments and agencies to improve the 
effectiveness of their programs by engaging in strategic planning, 
setting outcome-related goals for programs, and measuring program 
results against those goals. The goal of the Coordinating Center 
Program is to provide: (A) Recommendations related to the development 
of standards for inclusive comprehensive transition and postsecondary 
programs for students with intellectual disabilities; (B) technical 
assistance for such programs; and (C) evaluations for such programs.

[[Page 38510]]

To assess the success of the grantee in meeting these goals, in 
addition to other information, the grantee's annual performance report 
must include--
    (1) The percentage of recipients that have grants authorized under 
the TPSID program that meet Department-approved, center-developed 
standards for necessary program components, reported across each 
standard; and
    (2) The percentage of students with intellectual disabilities who 
are enrolled in programs funded under TPSID who complete the programs 
and obtain a meaningful credential, as defined by the center and 
approved by the Department.
