Abstract: The Department of Education is requesting a reinstatement without change of the previously approved annual performance report, which was discontinued on November 30, 2009 (OMB No.: 1840-0525), to collect data under the Student Support Services (SSS) Program. Reinstating the report would allow the Department to collect consistent performance data for as much as the grant cycle as possible from current SSS grantees, which were given a one-time, one-year extension due to the negotiated rulemaking process underway to implement the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) revisions to the Higher Education Act, the authorizing statute for the program. Beginning next year and pending a final rule, all new and continuing grantees will submit performance data consistent with the changes made by the HEOA.
