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.

Type of Review: Extension.
Title: State Educational Agency Local Educational Agency, and School Data Collection and Reporting under ESEA, Title I, Part A.
Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Gov't, SEAs or LEAs.
Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden:
Burden Hours: 6,688,814.
Abstract: Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act, requires State educational agencies (SEAs), local educational agencies (LEAs), and schools to collect and disseminate information to document progress, inform parents and the public about school, district, and State educational performance, and provide services to students and teachers to help at-risk students meet challenging State achievement standards. The change in burden hours is primarily due to updated estimates of the time needed for SEA, LEA, and school implementation of statutory district and school improvement planning requirements and the statutory requirement that local educational agencies notify parents of eligible students in schools in improvement of their public school choice and supplemental educational services option. The estimate also reflects hours for new final regulations 200.6(b)(4)(i)(c) and hours for the preparation of SEA and LEA report cards.
