SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Department deletes eight systems of records from its inventory of record systems subject to the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a). The deletions are not within the purview of subsection (r) of the Privacy Act, which requires submission of a report on a new or altered system of records.

These systems of records are no longer needed because the records are no longer collected or maintained by the Department or its contractors. Further, all data that has been collected for each system of records has been destroyed by the contractors; therefore the following systems of records are deleted:

1. (18-13-04) Outcomes of Diversity in Higher Education Study, 64 FR 30106, 30186 (June 4, 1999), as amended 64 FR 72408 (December 27, 1999).

2. (18-13-08) Early Reading First National Evaluation, 71 FR 66506-66508 (November 15, 2006).

3. (18-13-10) Impact Evaluation of Teacher Preparation Models, 70 FR 45378-45380 (August 5, 2005).

4. (18-13-11) Evaluation of the Impact of Teacher Induction Programs, 70 FR 35231-35233 (June 17, 2005).

5. (18-13-13) Impact Evaluation of Academic Instruction for After-School Programs, 70 FR 35656-35659 (June 21, 2005).

6. (18-13-14) Impact Evaluation of the U.S. Department of Education's Student Mentoring Program, 71 FR 28021-28023 (May 15, 2006).

7. (18-13-16) Impact Evaluation of Mandatory-Random Student Drug Testing, 72 FR 15129-15131 (March 30, 2007).

The following system of records was cancelled prior to records being collected and is therefore deleted:

8. (18-13-17) Impact Evaluation of Upward Bound's Increased Focus on Higher-Risk Students, 72 FR 33213-33215 (June 15, 2007).
