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 
December 28, 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.

    Dated: October 26, 2009.

    Type of Review: Revision
    Title: Grants to States for Workplace and Community Transition 
Training for Incarcerated Individuals
    Frequency: Annually
    Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Gov't, SEAs or LEAs
    Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden:

    Responses: 56
    Burden Hours: 2,800

    Abstract: The Department of Education receives funding for the 
Grants to States for Workplace and Community Transition Training for 
Incarcerated Individuals Program (Title VIII, Part D of the Higher 
Education Amendments of 1998, as amended). The most recent amendment 
passed via Public Law 110-315 requires State Correctional Education 
Agencies to submit a proposal in order to be eligible. The law also 
requires that appropriated funds be allotted to each State in an amount 
that bears the same relationship to the total number of eligible 
students in each State. Therefore, States must submit data concerning 
the number of eligible students under the Program, so that the 
Department can run the State allocation formula. State Correctional 
Education Agencies (SCEA) are required to conduct an evaluation and to 
annually report to the Secretary and the Attorney General on the 
results of the evaluation.
