    Abstract: The Office of Indian Education Professional Development 
(OIE PD) Grants program wishes to implement (1) A Semi-Annual 
Participant Report (SAPR), (2) a Participant Follow-Up Protocol, and 
(3) an Employment Verification survey. OIE PD grantees will submit 
participant contact and project service information on the SAPR twice a 
year. The OIE PD Grants program staff will use the Participant Follow-
Up Protocol to collect employment and continuing education information 
from IE PD participants who are not in an approved and active deferment 
once they have exited the program. IE PD participants will initiate 
contact with IE PD staff within 6 months of exiting the PD program and 
every 6 months thereafter for the length of their service payback 
period to report their employment and continuing education information. 
IE PD participants working in a local educational agency enrolling 5 
percent or more of American Indian/Alaska Native students will give the 
Employment Verification form to their principal or LEA representative 
to complete. The OIE PD grants program participants will submit 
employment verification forms to employers, starting upon employment 
and continuing every 6 months thereafter. The information collected 
through the SAPR, the Participant Follow-Up Protocol, and the 
Employment Verification Form is necessary to (1) Assess the performance 
of the IE PD program on its Government Performance Results Act (GPRA) 
measures, (2) determine if IE PD participants are fulfilling the terms 
of their service payback requirements, and (3) provide project-
monitoring and compliance information to IE PD Grants program staff.
