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.

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.

Abstract: This submission requests approval for a web-based performance report needed by the U.S. Department of Education (ED) to obtain baseline data and information on the progress and effectiveness of the Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to use Technology (PT3) grantees. The PT3 grant program was established to assist consortia of public and private entities in developing and implementing teacher training programs that prepare prospective teachers to use technology for improved instructional practices and student learning opportunities in the classroom. The performance reports will be completed by all 225 grantees and data gathered from the reports will be used by ED to determine which activities are most successful at training preservice teachers to integrate technology and to determine the overall effectiveness of the PT3 grant program.
