    Type of Review: Revision.
    Title: Annual Mandatory Collection of Elementary and Secondary 
Education Data for EDFacts.
    Frequency: Annually; Biennially.
    Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Gov't, SEAs or LEAs.
    Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden:

Responses: 7,059.
Burden Hours: 1,113,034.

    Abstract: EDFacts is in the implementation phase of a multiple year 
effort to consolidate the collection of education information about 
States, Districts, and Schools in a way that improves data quality and 
reduces paperwork burden for all of the national education partners. To 
minimize the burden on the data providers, EDEN seeks the transfer of 
the proposed data as soon as it has been processed for State, District, 
and School use. These data will then be stored in EDFacts and accessed 
by Federal education program managers and analysts as needed to make 
program management decisions. This process will eliminate redundant 
data collections while providing for the timeliness of data submission 
and use. The modification of this collection is to directly address the 
Civil Rights Data Collection from local education agencies (LEAs), 
which is part of the larger annual submission of elementary and 
secondary education data under EDFacts. The current expiration data and 
all of the currently approved data requirements of the State submitted 
data are not changing at this time.
