                 Title of Collection: Consolidated State Plan.
                 OMB Control Number: 1810-0576.
                 Type of Review: Extension without change of a currently approved
                 Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local, and Tribal Governments.
                 Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 52.
                 Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 108,155.
                 Abstract: This collection, currently approved by OMB under control
                number 1810-0576, covers the consolidated State plan (previously known
                as the consolidated State application), as well as assessment peer
                review guidance. Section 8302 of the ESEA, as amended by the ESSA,
                permits each SEA, in consultation with the Governor, to apply for
                program funds through submission of a consolidated State plan (in lieu
                of individual program State plans). The purpose of consolidated State
                plans as defined in ESEA is to improve teaching and learning by
                encouraging greater cross-program coordination, planning, and service
                delivery; to enhance program integration; and to provide greater
                flexibility and less burden for State educational agencies. This is a
                request for extension without change for this collection.
                 Dated: October 12, 2023.
