Abstract: The data collection described in this submission includes activities for the legislatively mandated evaluation of the Comprehensive Literacy State Development (CLSD) Program. The evaluation will provide information on the implementation of the program and its impact on student reading achievement. The CLSD evaluation is the second component of an evaluation of the U.S. Department of Education's comprehensive literacy programs. An earlier clearance package (OMB control number 1850-0945) covered the first component of the evaluation—an implementation study of the Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy Program (the precursor program to CLSD). The CLSD evaluation will include an examination of implementation, a randomized trial to estimate the impact of CLSD funding on teacher and student outcomes, and a longitudinal comparison of trends in achievement in CLSD and similar, non-CLSD schools. This package requests clearance for data collection associated with the implementation analyses, the randomized trial, and initial data Start Printed Page 35420collection for the comparisons of longitudinal trends. A separate package will be submitted at a later date for all remaining data collection activities for the comparisons of longitudinal trends, which will take place following the 2023-24 school year.
