This request is for a new OMB approval to collect the Annual Performance Report (APR) data from Charter School Programs (CSP) State Entity (SE) grantees. The Charter School Programs (CSP) was originally authorized under Title V, Part B, Subpart 1, Sections 5201 through 5211 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965, as amended by the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001. For fiscal year 2017 and thereafter, ESEA has been amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), (20USC 7221-7221i), which reserves funds to improve education by supporting innovation in public education and to: (1) provide financial assistance for the planning, program design, and initial implementation of charter schools; (2) increase the number of high-quality charter schools available to students across the United States; (3) evaluate the impact of charter schools on student achievement, families, and communities, and share best practices between charter schools and other public schools; (4) encourage States to provide support to charter schools for facilities financing in an amount more nearly commensurate to the amount States typically provide for traditional public schools; (5) expand opportunities for children with disabilities, English learners, and other traditionally underserved students to attend charter schools and meet the challenging State academic standards; (6) support efforts to strengthen the charter school authorizing process to improve performance management, including transparency, oversight and monitoring (including financial audits), and evaluation of such schools; and (7) support quality, accountability, and transparency in the operational performance of all authorized public chartering agencies, including State educational agencies, local educational agencies, and other authorizing entities. The U.S. Department of Education (ED) is requesting authorization to collect data from CSP grantees within the SE program through a new online platform. In 2022, ED began development of a new data collection system, the Charter Online Management and Performance System (COMPS), designed specifically to reduce the burden of reporting for users and increase validity of the overall data. This new collection consists of questions responsive to the actions established in the program’s final rule published in the Federal Register on July 6, 2022, as well as the SE program Notice Inviting Applications (NIA). This collection request is a consolidation of all previously established program data collection efforts and provides a more comprehensive representation of grantee performance.
