Notice of Proposed Information Collection Requests

AGENCY: Department of Education.
SUMMARY: The Acting 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 
July 6, 2010.

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.
    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.

    Abstract: The Education Longitudinal Study of 2002 (ELS:2002) is a 
nationally representative longitudinal study of two high school grade 
cohorts (spring 2002 tenth-graders and spring 2004 twelfth-graders) 
comprising over 16,000 sample members. The study focuses on achievement 
growth, and its correlates, in the high school years; the family and 
school social context of secondary education; and transitions from high 
school to postsecondary education and/or the labor market. Major issues 
for the postsecondary years include postsecondary educational access 
and choice, and persistence and baccalaureate and sub-baccalaureate 
attainment, as well as the work experiences of the non-college-bound, 
and other markers of adult status, such as family formation and civic 
participation. Data collections took place in 2002, 2004, 2006 (two 
years out of high school), and now a final data collection will take 
place in 2012, when most sample members are around 26 years of age. 
This submission requests OMB's approval for batch tracing for the third 
follow-up 2011 field test and 2012 full scale respondents.
