    In the Federal Register of July 24, 2009, in FR DOCID: FR Doc. E9-
17728 filed on July 23, 2009, Volume 74, Number 141, page 36683, third

receive a briefing on the NAEP 2007 State Mapping Study from Peggy 
Carr, the Associate Commissioner of NCES. The Governing Board will be 
provided with embargoed data on the State Mapping Study that cannot be 
discussed in an open meeting prior to their official release. Premature 
disclosure of data would significantly impede implementation of the 
NAEP program, and is therefore protected by exemption 9(B) of section 
552b(c) of Title 5 U.S.C.'' is cancelled and replaced with the 
following paragraph, which was an agenda item originally scheduled for 
discussion on Saturday August 8 from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.:
    ``The full Board will meet in closed session on August 7 from 12:30 
p.m. to 2 p.m. to receive a demonstration on NAEP Science Interactive 
Computer Tasks. The interactive computer tasks are secure items and 
cannot be discussed in an open meeting. Premature disclosure of the 
test items would significantly impede implementation of the NAEP 
program, and is therefore protected by exemption 9(B) of section 
552b(c) of Title 5 U.S.C.'' The paragraph appearing on the first full 
paragraph of page 36684 describing this agenda item is deleted.
    Due to the agenda item change above, the times for the remaining 
agenda items for the August 7 and 8 sessions described on pages 36683 
and 36684 of the Federal Register Notice are changed as follows:
    (1) August 7--The presentation of Expert Panel Reports to the Ad 
Hoc Committee on NAEP Testing and Reporting of Students with 
Disabilities and English language Learners originally scheduled from 
1:30 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. will now take place from 2:15 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. 
(instead of 1:30 p.m. to 2:45 p.m.).
    (2) August 7--The Update on Common Core Standards Project will now 
take place from 3:30 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. (instead of 3 p.m. to 3:45
