DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

 
Notice of Proposed Information Collection Requests

AGENCY: Department of Education.

ACTION: Notice of Proposed Information Collection Requests.

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

SUMMARY: The Leader, Information Management Case Services Team, 
Regulatory Information Management Services, Office of the Chief 
Information Officer, invites comments on the proposed information 
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 
November 29, 2005.

ADDRESSES: Written comments regarding the emergency review should be 
addressed to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, 
Attention: Rachel Potter, Desk Officer, Department of Education, Office 
of Management and Budget; 725 17th Street, NW., Room 10222, New 
Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503 or faxed to (202) 395-
6974.

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 Leader, Information 
Management Case Services Team, Regulatory Information Management 
Services, 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.
    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.

    Type of Review: Revision.
    Title: Annual State Application Under Part C of the IDEA as Amended 
in 2004.
    Abstract: The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement 
Act of 2004, signed on December 3, 2004, became Pub. L. 108-446. In 
order to be eligible for a grant under 20 U.S.C. 1433, a State shall 
provide assurance to the Secretary that the State has adopted a policy 
that appropriate early intervention services are available to all 
infants and toddlers with disabilities in the State and their families,

families residing on a reservation geographically located in the State, 
infants and toddlers with disabilities who are homeless children and 
their families, and has in effect a statewide system that meets the 
requirements of 20 U.S.C. 1435. Information Collection 1820-0550 is 
being revised so that a State can provide assurances that it either has 
or does not have in effect policies, procedures, methods, descriptions, 
and assurances that meet the application requirements of part C of the 
Act as found in Pub. L. 108-446.
