[[Page 15696]]

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.
    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.

    Type of Review: New.
    Title: Identifying Potentially Successful Approaches to Turning 
Around Chronically Low Performing Schools.
    Frequency: Once.
    Affected Public: Individuals or households.
    Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden:

Responses: 1,746.
Burden Hours: 743.

    Abstract: This study seeks to identify schools that have achieved 
rapid improvements in student outcomes in a short period of time; 
illuminate the complex range of policies, programs, and practices used 
by these turnaround schools; and compare them to strategies employed by 
not improving, chronically low-performing schools. The ultimate goal of 
the study is to specify replicable policies, programs, and practices 
that hold greatest promise for further rigorous analysis. To this end, 
the study will collect data from school principals as well as school 
staff through a web-based and telephone survey and on-site interviews 
in selected schools. The data will be used by the U.S. Department of 
Education to identify policies, programs, and practices associated with 
school turnaround that can be rigorously tested in a future impact 
evaluation study.
