[[Page 26849]]


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.

    Abstract: The School Survey on Crime and Safety (SSOCS) is a
nationally representative survey of elementary and secondary school
principals that serves as the primary source of school-level data on
crime and safety in public schools. SSOCS is the only recurring federal
survey collecting detailed information on the incidence, frequency,
seriousness, and nature of violence affecting students and school
personnel from the school's perspective. Additionally, data are
collected on frequency and types of disciplinary actions taken for
select offenses; perceptions of other disciplinary problems, such as
bullying, verbal abuse and disorder in the classroom; and school
policies and programs concerning crime and safety. The SSOCS is done on
a biennial basis in the spring of even-numbered years.
