Notice of Proposed Information Collection Requests

AGENCY: Department of Education.

SUMMARY: The Director, Information Collection Clearance Division, 
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 
July 14, 2009.

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 Director, Information Collection 
Clearance Division, 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.

1442, not later than 1 year after the date of enactment of the 
Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004, each 
lead agency must have in place a performance plan that evaluates the 
lead agency's efforts to implement the requirements and purposes of 
Part C and describe how the Lead Agency will improve such 
implementation. This plan is called the Part C State Performance Plan 
(Part C--SPP). In accordance with 20 U.S.C. 1416(b)(2)(C)(ii) the lead 
agency shall report annually to the public on the performance of each 
early intervention service program located in the State on the targets 
in the lead agency's performance plan. The lead agency also shall 
report annually to the Secretary on the performance of the State under 
the lead agency's performance plan. This report is called the Part C 
Annual Performance Report (Part C--APR). IC 1820-0578 is being extended 
so that States will continue to maintain the SPP and annually submit 
the APR.
