Title: Phase 1 of the National Evaluation of Talent Search and
Educational Opportunity Centers.
Frequency: One time.
Affected Public: Not-for-profit institutions.
Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden:

Responses: 445
Burden Hours: 301

Abstract: The purpose of this evaluation is to provide updated
information on the operation and implementation of Talent Search and
Educational Opportunity Centers and to examine the feasibility of
conducting a study of Talent Search Outcomes and impact on students.
The Talent Search Program has the purpose of increasing the number of
youth from disadvantaged backgrounds who graduate from high school and
enroll in postsecondary institutions. Educational Opportunity Centers
(EOCs) have goals and services similar to Talent Search but with a
focus on serving an adult population that has left school prior to
completion. Clearance is requested for two data collection efforts: (1)
A census-survey of all Talent Search Coordinators/Directors, and (2) a
census-survey of all EOC Coordinators/Directors.

Type of Review: New.
Title: Compact for Reading Evaluation.
Frequency: Semi-annually.
Affected Public: Individuals or households; State, local or Tribal
Gov't, SEAs or LEAs.
Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden:

Responses: 26,624
Burden Hours: 30,123

Abstract: The Compact for Reading is a written agreement between
families, teachers, students, and principals describing how each
partner will work to improve the reading skills of students in
kindergarten through third grade. At each grade level, a set of 100
home learning activities is offered to improve reading skills. These
activities focus on family members as home learning partners. Research
shows that even though the requirement for Title I compacts is several
years old, many Title I schools still do not have compacts in place, or
do not use them to full advantage. The Compact for Reading evaluation
will attempt to show whether implementing this type of compact will
enhance student learning and therefore should be considered for
adoption by other Title I schools.
Requests for copies of this information collection should be
addressed to Vivian Reese, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland
