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

SUMMARY: The Acting Leader, Information Management Group, Office of the

collection requests as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.

DATES: An emergency review has been requested in accordance with the 
Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 3507 (j)), since public harm is reasonably 
likely to result if normal clearance procedures are followed. Approval 
by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has been requested by June 
2, 1999.

ADDRESSES: Written comments regarding the emergency review should be 
addressed to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, 
Attention: Danny Werfel, Desk Officer: Department of Education, Office 
of Management and Budget; 725 17th Street, N.W., Room 10235, New

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) requires that the Director of OMB 
provide interested Federal agencies and the public an early opportunity 
to comment on information collection requests. The Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) may amend or waive the requirement for public 
consultation to the extent that public participation in the approval 
process would defeat the purpose of the information collection, violate 
State or Federal law, or substantially interfere with any agency's 
ability to perform its statutory obligations. The Acting Leader, 
Information Management Group, Office of the Chief Information Officer, 
publishes this notice containing proposed information collection 
requests at the beginning of the Departmental review of the information 
collection. Each proposed information collection, grouped by office, 
contains the following: (1) Type of review requested, e.g., new, 
revision, extension, existing or reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) Summary 
of the collection; (4) Description of the need for, and proposed use 
of, the information; (5) Respondents and frequency of collection; and 
(6) Reporting and/or Recordkeeping burden. ED invites public comment at 
the address specified above. Copies of the requests are available from 
Patrick J. Sherrill at the address specified above.
    The Department of Education is especially interested in public 
comment addressing the following issues: (1) is this collection 
necessary to the proper functions of the Department; (2) will this 
information be processed and used in a timely manner, (3) is the 
estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the Department enhance the 
quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected, and 
(5) how might the Department minimize the burden of this collection on 
respondents, including through the use of information technology.
