the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper 
performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the 
information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of 
the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of 
information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions 
used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information 
to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on those who are to respond, including through the use of 
appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological 
collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

    Abstract: The Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as 
amended, provides funds to districts to improve the quality of their 
teaching and principal force and raise student achievement. These funds 
are provided to districts through Title II, Part A (Improving Teacher 
Quality State Grants--Subgrants to LEAs). The purpose of this survey is 
for the U.S. Department of Education to have a better understanding of 
how districts use these funds. The survey also collects information on 
high-quality professional development in LEAs. In addition to the LEA 
survey, the package also includes a short survey for State Educational 
Agencies (SEA) that provides information on fiscal year allocations of 
Title II, Part A funds made to the LEAs selected for participation in 
the LEA survey. This Office of Management and Budget clearance request 
is to continue these analyses using a similar data collection 
instrument and sampling plan for the 2011-2012 school year and 
subsequent years. Minor changes to the LEA survey are requested. No 
changes to the SEA survey are required.
