    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 
Performance Results Act (GPRA) of 1993, Section 4 (1115), and the 
Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR), 34 CFR 
75.253. EDGAR states that 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.
