DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

34 CFR Part 280

RIN 1855-AA07
[Docket ID ED-2010-OII-0003]

 
Magnet Schools Assistance Program

AGENCY: Office of Innovation and Improvement, Department of Education.

ACTION: Interim final rule; reopening comment period.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On March 4, 2010, the Department of Education published in the 
Federal Register an interim final rule and requested comments on that 
rule for the Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MSAP). The rule became 
effective March 4, 2010, and the comment period for the interim final 
rule ended on April 5, 2010. During the comment period, the Department 
received requests asking that the Department extend the comment period 
for the interim final rule. This document announces the reopening of 
the comment period.

DATES: The Department reopens the public comment period for the interim 
final rule that was published in the Federal Register on March 4, 2010 
(75 FR 9777). Comments must be received on or before May 17, 2010.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments through the Federal eRulemaking Portal 
or via postal mail, commercial delivery, or hand delivery. We will not 
accept comments by fax or by e-mail. Please submit your comments only 
one time, in order to ensure that we do not receive duplicate copies. 
In addition, please include the Docket ID at the top of your comments.
     Federal eRulemaking Portal: Go to http://www.regulations.gov to 
submit your comments electronically. Information 
on using Regulations.gov, including instructions for accessing agency 
documents, submitting comments, and viewing the docket is available on 
the site under ``How To Use This Site.''
     Postal Mail, Commercial Delivery, or Hand Delivery: If you 
mail or deliver your comments about these interim final regulations, 
address them to Anna Hinton, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland 
Avenue, SW., Room 4W229, Washington, DC 20202.

    Privacy Note: The Department's policy for comments received from 
members of the public (including those comments submitted by mail, 
commercial delivery, or hand delivery) is to make these submissions 
available for public viewing in their entirety on the Federal 
eRulemaking Portal at: http://www.regulations.gov. Therefore, 
commenters should be careful to include in their comments only 
information that they wish to make publicly available on the 
Internet.

    Individuals with disabilities may obtain this document in an 
accessible format (e.g., braille, large print, audiotape, or computer 
diskette) on request to the contact person listed above.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department reopens the public comment 
period for the interim final rule that was published in the Federal 
Register on March 4, 2010 (75 FR 9777) because we have determined that 
a longer comment period would provide local educational agencies 
submitting grant applications under the MSAP for fiscal year (FY) 2010 
funding and other interested parties an opportunity to submit comments 
on the interim rule after the May 3, 2010 application deadline date 
announced for the FY 2010 grant competition in the notice inviting 
applications published on March 4, 2010 (75 FR 9879).
    The Department believes this approach will improve the quality of 
information available for rulemaking, so the Secretary is reopening the 
comment period.

    Dated: April 16, 2010.
James H. Shelton, III,
Assistant Deputy Secretary for Innovation and Improvement.
