DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION


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
October 19, 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,

[[Page 41691]]

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.

    Dated: August 12, 2009.

    Type of Review: New Collection.
    Title: Beginning Teacher Longitudinal Study (BTLS) 2009-2012.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Affected Public: Individuals or household.
    Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden:
    Responses: 1,891.
    Burden Hours: 513.
    Abstract: The New Teacher Longitudinal Survey will follow a sample
of public school teachers who were in their first year of teaching in
2007-08. These teachers were first interviewed as part of the 2007-08
Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS) and were also part of the 2008-09
Teacher Follow-up Survey. They will be contacted again in 2010 as part
of a second follow-up. Following this small subset of the SASS sample
for at least a decade will provide much needed data on teachers'
careers, attrition, and mobility.
