SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Department of Education (ED), in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)), provides the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed, revised, and continuing collections of information. This helps the Department assess the impact of its information collection requirements and minimize the public's reporting burden. It also helps the public understand the Department's information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format. ED is soliciting comments on the proposed information collection request (ICR) that is described below. The Department of Education is especially interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is this collection necessary to the proper functions of the Department; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the Department enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the Department minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology. Please note that written comments received in response to this notice will be considered public records. Public comments are encouraged on all changes proposed in the Part I and Part II Consolidated State Performance Report; the Department is also interested in obtaining input from data submitters and stakeholders on these specific questions:

1. CSPR Process

What part of the CSPR process is the most burdensome on your SEA?

a. Reporting the data into the system.

b. Data quality reviews.

c. EMAPS reporting.

d. Other, please specify.

What are ways ED should improve the CSPR process to reduce burden on your SEA?

2. Submission of CSPR

Currently CSPR is collected in two parts, with separate open and close schedules. Would it be less, more, or the same burden if ED moved to collecting CSPR as one part in the future? Which part of the process would increase or decrease your burden by moving to one part:

a. Reporting the data into the system.

b. Data quality reviews.

c. EMAPS reporting.

d. Other, please specify.
