the Assistant Secretary in administering the duties of the Office.

from approximately 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. under the authority of section 
10(d) of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (Pub. L. 92-463; 5 U.S.C.

The Board will discuss plans for future requests for proposals for

Secretary for OERI and from the chair and executive director. The 
Program Committee will report on plans for a conference on middle 
schools, tentatively scheduled for July 2000. A final agenda will be
