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 
August 23, 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 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 Office of Migrant Education is collecting information 
for the High School Equivalency Program Annual Performance Report in 
compliance with Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, Title IV, 
Sec. 418A; 20 U.S.C. 1070d-2 (special programs for students whose 
families are engaged in migrant and seasonal farm work), the Government

recipients of multi-year discretionary grants must submit an Annual 
Performance Report demonstrating that substantial progress has been 
made towards meeting the approved objectives of the project. In 
addition, discretionary grantees are required to report on their 
progress toward meeting the performance measures established for the 
Department of Education grant program. The Office of Migrant Education 
requests a revision of a currently approved collection to continue the 
use of a customized Annual Performance Report that goes beyond the 
Department of Education generic form number 524B Annual Performance 
Report to facilitate the collection of more standardized and 
comprehensive data to inform GPRA, to improve the overall quality of 
data collected, and to increase the quality of data that can be used to 
inform policy decisions.
