submission for OMB review as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995.

DATES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995 (44 U.S.C. chapter 35) requires that the Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) provide interested Federal agencies and the public an 
early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. 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, Regulatory Information 
Management Group, Office of the Chief Information Officer, publishes 
that notice containing proposed information collection requests prior 
to submission of these requests to OMB. 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. OMB invites public comment.

    Abstract: The current OMB package requests clearance for the

Study. To be eligible for the full study, districts and schools must

sample is relevant to the purposes of the study (e.g., are implementing 
one of two scientifically based reading programs of interest in the 
study) and are relevant to current legislation such as the No Child 
Left Behind (NCLB) Act (e.g., districts and schools serve high poverty 
students).
