                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.
