    Type of Review: Revision.
    Title: Survey on the Use of Funds Under Title II, Part A 
(``Improving Teacher Quality State Grants--Subgrants to LEAs'').
    Frequency: Annually.

    Abstract: The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), which 
reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, 
provides funds to districts to improve the quality of their teaching 
and principal force and raise student achievement. These funds are 
provided to districts through Title II, Part A (``Improving Teacher 
Quality State Grants--Subgrants to LEAs''). The purpose of this survey 
is for the U.S. Department of Education to have a better understanding 
of how districts are using these funds. The survey also collects 
information on high-quality professional development in LEAs.
    This OMB clearance request is to continue these analyses using a 
similar data collection instrument and sampling plan for the 2007-2008 
school year and subsequent years. The major change from past years is 
the addition of a short survey for State Educational Agencies (SEAs). 
The SEA survey will provide information on fiscal year allocations of 
Title II, Part A funds made to the LEAs selected for participation in 
the main survey and be preprinted with the names of the LEAs selected 
for participation in the LEA survey.
