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.

    Abstract: This package requests approval to conduct semi-structured 
interviews with 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) 
state coordinators in states which received the optional Elementary and 
Secondary Education Act (ESEA) waiver to use 21st CCLC funds for 
expanded learning time (ELT). The interviews will be used to produce a 
descriptive report, which will summarize how states plan to use 21st 
CCLC funds to support ELT, the process for awarding 21st CCLC funds to 
support ELT, and how states will monitor subgrantees' ELT
