families. The 1998-99 Directory lists, on a State-by-State and
Territory-by-Territory basis, the schools in which a borrower may teach
during the 1998-99 school year to qualify for deferment and
cancellation benefits. The Amendments to the Directory identify changes
in the list of schools that qualify borrowers for teacher cancellation
benefits under each of the loan programs.

participating in the Federal Perkins Loan Program, (2) each of the
fifty-seven (57) State and Territory Departments of Education, (3) each
