of utilization by a student-parent
throughout their enrollment at the
institution and will provide results
based on the long-term academic
success of the student-parent. The
Department will aggregate the data
provided in the annual performance
reports from all grantees to determine
the accomplishment level. The
CCAMPIS reporting data collection is
moving towards a semester-to-semester
cohort model. This will not increase
public reporting burden as CCAMPIS
grantees are gathering and maintaining
the data needed in completing and
reviewing the collection of information
currently.
6. Continuation Awards: In making a
continuation grant under 34 CFR
75.253, the Secretary considers, among
other things: Whether a grantee has
made substantial progress in achieving
the goals and objectives of the project;
whether the grantee has expended funds
in a manner that is consistent with its
approved application and budget; and,
if the Secretary has established
performance measurement
requirements, the performance targets in
the grantee’s approved application.
In making a continuation grant, the
Secretary also considers whether the
grantee is operating in compliance with
the assurances in its approved
application, including those applicable
to Federal civil rights laws that prohibit
discrimination in programs or activities
receiving Federal financial assistance
from the Department (34 CFR 100.4,
104.5, 106.4, 108.8, and 110.23).

Title of Collection: Evaluating the DC
Opportunity Scholarship Program After
the 2017 Reauthorization.
OMB Control Number: 1850–NEW.
Type of Review: A new information
collection.
Respondents/Affected Public: Private
Sector; State, Local, and Tribal
Governments; Individuals and
Households.
Total Estimated Number of Annual
Responses: 842.
Total Estimated Number of Annual
Burden Hours: 303.
Abstract: The U.S. Department of
Education (ED)’s Institute of Education
Sciences (IES) requests clearance for
data collection activities to support a
congressionally mandated study of the
District of Columbia (DC) Opportunity
Scholarship Program (OSP). Collecting
information about the OSP is critical
given ED’s interest in private school
choice as a way to improve students’
educational outcomes and Congress’s
focus on the program. Proposed
legislation supports both expanding the
OSP to serve more students in DC and
new tax credits that would make up to
$5 billion available to fund similar
programs nationwide. The importance
of the OSP to Congress is reflected in its
requirement that IES conduct a third
evaluation of the program, following
those completed in 2011 and 2019. The
study will result in a report on the
implementation of the OSP, including
identification of challenges encountered
by OSP-eligible applicants, participating
schools, and the program operator; and
potential program or policy changes to
help address these challenges. A
subsequent issue brief will focus on
challenges related to families’ ongoing
participation in the OSP, since about
20% of students stop using scholarships
after one year of participation. The
study will also use the collected data to
disseminate up to three issue policy
briefs. This request covers
administrative data as well as surveys of
the OSP program operator,
administrators of participating and non-
participating OSP schools, OSP
applicants, and OSP users. Also
included is a request for classroom
observations in OSP-participating
schools.
