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. The Acting Director, Information Collection Clearance Division, Regulatory Information Management Services, Office of Management, publishes that notice containing proposed information collection requests prior to submission of these requests to OMB. 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: The Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten Class of 2010-11 (ECLS-K:2011) is a survey that focuses on children's early school experiences beginning with kindergarten and continuing through the fifth grade. It includes interviews with parents, teachers, school administrators, and non-parental care providers, as well as direct child assessments. This submission updates the field test submission of fiscal year 2009 (OMB# 1850-0750 v.5), summarizes the field test results, and includes the final instruments to be used for the Fall 2010 and Spring 2011 kindergarten national data collection, with collection activities scheduled to begin in Summer 2010. This package also outlines and seeks a 60-day federal register notice waiver for the upcoming OMB clearance submission for (1) a possible addition of vision and hearing screenings to the kindergarten data collection and (2) the Fall 2011 first grade recruitment and data collection, Spring 2012 first grade recruitment materials and recruitment burden, and for tracking students for the first and second grade data collections—all of which are expected to have only minor changes to the materials, instruments, and processes already approved in the field test package (OMB# 1850-0750 v.5).
