ACTION: Notice of proposed priority: reopening of comment period.


SUMMARY: This document reopens the comment period for the proposed 
priority under the Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students 
Education Program that was published in the Federal Register (73 FR 
2228) on January 14, 2008. The proposed priority would support the 
implementation of models with demonstrated effectiveness in identifying 
and serving gifted and talented students who are economically 
disadvantaged or limited English proficient, or who have disabilities, 
and who may not be identified and served through typical strategies for 
identifying gifted children. The original deadline for comments on the 
proposed priority was February 13, 2008. Due to administrative problems 
with the e-mail address listed in the notice of proposed priority, we 
are reopening the comment period until March 10, 2008 to give 
stakeholders more time to comment on the proposed priority.
