Notice of Proposed Information Collection Requests

AGENCY: Department of Education.

SUMMARY: The Acting Leader, Information Management Case Services Team, 
Regulatory Information Management Services, Office of Management, 
invites comments on the proposed information collection requests as 
required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.

DATES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before 
August 20, 2007.

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, Information Management 
Case Services Team, Regulatory Information Management Services, Office 
of Management, 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.
    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 
the respondents, including through the use of information technology.

    Frequency: On occasion; annually; end of semester.
    Affected Public:
    Not-for-profit institutions; Individuals or household; State, 
Local, or Tribal Gov't, SEAs or LEAs.

    Abstract: The data collections under this request are governed by 
Section 304.1-304.32 of the December 9, 1999 regulations that implement 
section 673(h) of the IDEA amendments of 1997 which requires that 
individuals who receive a scholarship through the Personnel Development 
Program funded under the Act subsequently provide special education and 
related services to children with disabilities for a period of two 
years for every year for which assistance was received. Scholarship 
recipients who do not satisfy the requirements of the regulations must 
repay all or part of the cost of assistance in accordance with 
regulations issued by the Secretary. These regulations implement 
requirements governing among other things, the service obligation for 
scholars, oversight by grantees, and repayment of scholarship. In order 
for the Federal government to ensure the goals of the program are 
achieved, certain data collection, record keeping, and documentation 
are necessary.
