    On page 12073, we included a footnote providing the Department's 
interpretation of the core academic subject of science as including 
STEM education (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) 
which encompasses a wide range of disciplines. As an example of those 
disciplines, we intended to include computer science rather than 
science. To correct this error, the Department makes the following 
correction to the March 12 NIA:
    On page 12073, under the heading Absolute Priority 3--Innovations 
That Complement the Implementation of High Standards and High-Quality 
Assessments, in the third column, in footnote number one, in line six, 
``including science'' is replaced with ``including computer science.'' 
Program Authority: Section 14007 of division A of the American Recovery 
and Reinvestment Act of 2009, Public Law 111-5, as amended by section 
307 of division D of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010, Public 
Law 111-117.
