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 Acting 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.

    Abstract: The Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten 
Class of 2010-11 (ECLS-K:2011) is a survey that focuses on children's 
early school experiences beginning with kindergarten and continuing 
through the fifth grade. It includes interviews with parents, teachers, 
school administrators, and non-parental care providers, as well as 
direct child assessments. This submission updates the field test 
submission of fiscal year 2009 (OMB 1850-0750 v.5), summarizes 
the field test results, and includes the final instruments to be used 
for the Fall 2010 and Spring 2011 kindergarten national data 
collection, with collection activities scheduled to begin in Summer 
2010. This package also outlines and seeks a 60-day federal register 
notice waiver for the upcoming OMB clearance submission for (1) a 
possible addition of vision and hearing screenings to the kindergarten 
data collection and (2) the Fall 2011 first grade recruitment and data 
collection, Spring 2012 first grade recruitment materials and 
recruitment burden, and for tracking students for the first and second 
grade data collections--all of which are expected to have only minor 
changes to the materials, instruments, and processes already approved 
in the field test package (OMB 1850-0750 v.5).
