Abstract: The purpose is to implement a data collection process for a new semi-annual reporting for Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) purposes for the National Professional Development Program (NPD). These data are necessary to assess the performance of the National Professional Development in meeting its stated goals and objectives and report to the U.S. Department of Education (ED's) Budget Service. The National Professional Development program provides professional development activities intended to improve instruction for students with limited English proficiency (LEP) and assists education personnel working with such children to meet high professional standards. The National Professional Development program office is submitting this application to request approval to collect information from NPD grantees. The proposed data collection serves two purposes. First, the data are necessary to assess the performance of the National Professional Development program on Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) measures.

Second, budget information and data on project-specific performance measures are collected from National Professional Development grantees for project-monitoring information.
