Jim did call me last week, by the way, to let me know that he would be

again next week and I'll have a better sense of what would be best for a meeting.

Hi Bob,
How are you? I trust all is well.
I was wondering if you were planning to be in Boston on Feb.2nd for Ann Coles' reception
at the College Board. If you are, I'd like to invite you to visit with ASA while you are in
town. Paul and I would like the opportunity to have a further conversation with you about
the ASA paper we shared with you in October, "Breaking the Deadlock", as well as a
discussion about our VFA.
If you are not going to be in Boston, perhaps we could set up a time to speak on the phone
or meet with you in DC. Just let me know what might work best for you schedule. Any
time you have would be appreciated.
Thanks and I look forward to speaking with you soon.

The FSA Conversations With Leaders Speaker Series Welcomes
Thomas H. Stanton
on
The Current Financial Crisis: Implications for the Federal Government
Thomas H. Stanton's article Strengthening Government's Ability to Deal with the Financial
Crisis (IBM Center for The Business of Government, 2009) explains the evolution of the
financial crisis and steps that the government took to overcome it and ameliorate its
effects. It makes organizational and policy recommendations that might help the federal
government deal with the situation once the economy begins to stabilize. These
recommendations fall into three categories: restore public confidence, increase
governmental capacity, and increase support for the credit markets.
Mr. Stanton will open the session with remarks about the current state of the financial
crisis.
The balance of the session will be open for questions and dialog about the financial crisis
overall , as well as its impact on the student loan market.
Please join us for this very timely and interesting CWL Speaker Series session!
Thomas H. Stanton is a Fellow of the Center for the Study of American Government at the
Johns Hopkins University, where he received the award for Excellence in Teaching. Mr.
Stanton serves on the board of directors of the National Academy of Public Administration
and is a former member of the federal Senior Executive Service.
As a Washington, DC attorney, Mr. Stanton's practice relates to the capacity of public
institutions to deliver services effectively, with specialties relating to organizational and
program design, federal credit and benefit programs, government enterprises, and
regulatory oversight. His writings on public administration have appeared in publications
including Public Administration Review, The Administrative Law Journal, American Banker,
and the Wall Street Journal. He edited, with Benjamin Ginsberg, Making Government
Manageable: Executive Organization and Management in the 21st Century, Johns Hopkins
University Press, 2004. He also edited, Meeting the Challenge of 9/11 : Blueprints for
Effective Government, M.E. Sharpe Publishers, 2006.
Mr. Stanton's publications on government and the financial markets include two books on
government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) . Concerns expressed in A State of Risk: Will
Government-Sponsored Enterprises be the Next Financial Crisis? (HarperCollins, 1991)
helped lead to enactment of several pieces of legislation and the creation of a new federal
financial regulator in 1992.
Mr. Stanton's B.A. degree is from the University of California at Davis, M.A. from Yale
University, and J.D. from the Harvard Law School. He is fluent in German and has
conducted research in several different countries. The National Association of Counties
awarded him its Distinguished Service Award for his advocacy on behalf of the
intergovernmental partnership.

Nancy Zimpher, Chancellor-elect of the State University of New York (SUNY) System and
Chair of the Coalition of Urban Serving Universities <http://www.usucoalition.org/> (USU) ,
with you or another representative from the Department of Education for Wednesday, April
1 (someti me between 2- 5:30 p.m.) .
Derek Douglas, Special Assistant to the President for Urban Affairs, recently spoke with
Secretary Duncan about the Coalition. We thought this might be a good opportunity for
Nancy to connect with Department officials while she is in town.
USU is a network of public urban research universities that represents every region of our
country. University presidents created USU to leverage the intellectual capital and
economic power of urban universities, thereby improving urban life and America's
competitiveness in the global economy. To this end, USU is focused on three major
issues-- creating a competitive workforce, building strong communities, and improving the
health of a diverse population.
Nancy would like to discuss USU's work establishing local P-20 partnerships in major cities
throughout the U.S. USU will receive foundational support from Living Cities to replicate
the Strive: A Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Birth to Career Collaborative in four additional
cities. Five USU members will also receive planning grants to work toward establishing
P-20 models in the future. Living Cities will announce these awards on April1. I am
attaching a link below that provides more information on the Strive program and the Living
Cities grant.

Marie-
Thank you for the your email and the invitation. I would be happy to
patticipate, schedule petmitting, but I am not allowed to represent the
Depattment of Education in a public speaking setting until I am
confirmed. I would like to believe that I will be confirmed by April,
but having worked in the Senate, I appreciate that it is possible that I
will not be. Perhaps someone else from the Depmtment who is more
of a sw·e bet COtLld do it? Bob Shireman is here working on higher
education access issues. We could check his availability?
Let me know if you want me to pass along the invite.

I know that each of you has been in contact with Marie Bennett about presenting during
the NASSGAP Spring Conference in Washington, DC. Marie has indicated that, while
neither of you can commit at this time, you are both willing to present.
As NASSGAP's Program Committee Chair, I thought I should let you know that we have
tentatively scheduled one or both of you to present on Tuesday, April?, from 8:30a.m. to
10:30 a.m. under the topic "Update on Department of Education Activities". As Marie
indicated, this would allow you time to address NASSGAP about the higher education
vision of the new administration and how state agencies can partner with the federal
government on many shared goals.
If you have questions about the Conference, your attendance, or the tentative time for a
presentation from you, please let Marie or me know. I would also appreciate it if one of
you would let Marie or me know when/if you are able to make a commitment to this
presentation.
Thanks for your interest.

They believe that the projects in #2 above wi ll be helpful to the Secretary and others as
the U.S. Department of Education prepares to create an "access and completion incentive
program" designed to increase students' college completion rates as contained in
President Obama's FY 2010 budget.
About CGS:
The CGS Ph.D. Completion Project is a seven-year, grant-funded project addressing
issues of completion and attrition in doctoral education. Research conducted through the
project has identified six institutional and program characteristics that influence student
outcomes and the likelihood that a particular student will complete a Ph.D. Institutions of
higher education that are participating in the project have identified interventions and best
practices they are implementing with the goal of increasing doctoral completion rates. The

this paper is a compilation from several different sources. We attempted to cast a broad
net in terms of identifying stimulus funding that might find its way to higher education.
Finally, working with the Lumina Foundation, we decided to organize this meeting after
reading the following statement from the Delta Project, the National Center for Public
Policy and Higher Education, and NCHEMS
(http://www.highereducation.org/reports/ARRAIARRA_Statement.pdf). We appreciate
these organizations' early leadership on the best uses for higher education stimulus
funding.
Please do not hesitate to call or email me with any questions before Tuesday.
All the best,
Terrell

Hi Bob:
First, congratulations on your new position with the Obama administration! Have
you found out what your role will be yet?
I'm emailing to invite you to participate on a panel looking at rethinking student
aid if you're allowed. We've tentatively scheduled it for 9 a.m. on Friday, May
l. Sandy Baum is confirmed for the panel as well.
I wonder if some of the recommendations made by the College Board panel would
change, given the current economic circumstances. Certainly loans become more
problematic with the credit crunch.
Good luck with the new job.
Thanks!

On May 28, the Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics will
release The Condition of Education 2009 and The Condition of Education 2009 in Brief.
The Condition of Education 2009 summarizes important developments and trends in

2018. Over the period of 2006 to 2018, the South is the region of the country projected to
experience the largest increase (18 percent) in the number of students enrolled.
* Between 1972 and 2007, the percentage of public school students who were White
decreased from 78 to 56 percent. This decrease largely reflects the growth in the number
of students who were Hispanic.
* The average reading and mathematics scores on the long-term trend National
Assessment of Educational Progress were higher in 2008 than in the early 1970s for 9-
and 13-year -olds; scores for 17 -year-olds were not measurably different over the same
period.
* The rate of college enrollment immediately after high school completion increased
from 49 percent in 1972 to 67 percent by 1997, but has since fluctuated between 62 and
69 percent.
* The percentage of 25- to 29-year-olds who had completed a bachelor's degree or
higher increased from 17 to 29 percent between 1971 and 2000 and was 31 percent in
2008.

Zakiya:
Kathleen Smith suggested that I contact you with respect to setting up a conversational
meeting between myself, our CEO (Ms. Lisa lm), and Mr. Shireman. We would like to
discuss the process and challenges of transitioning guaranty agency defaulted loan
portfolios as the FFELP to Direct Loan program transition is undertaken. Our firm is one of
the Department's principal defaulted student loan collection contractors, although we are
more interested in discussing the evolution of the loan program as Mr. Shireman brings
new leadership to the student loan arena. We believe our experience and insight can be
helpful to Mr. Shireman as he grapples with the responsibilities of his office.
We view this meeting with great importance and, accordingly, could schedule a meeting on
any day Monday through Friday beginning June 8th, 2009. For logistical reasons, we
would prefer a time that would fall on a Tuesday through Thursday, as Ms. lm would be
traveling from/to California.

First, my heartiest congratulations on your new appointment at Ed. It is so well-
deserved and sti ll another great tribute to your wisdom and dedication to the values
and struggles we have long shared.
Second, I am delighted that on June 17 you, Matt Yale and Secretary Duncan will
join a small group of scholars, researchers, and higher-education practitioners at an
off-the-record luncheon discussion here at Brookings to discuss the many lingering
chal lenges we all face in trying to create more equal higher educational
opportunities for the neediest students.

In my recent invitation to the participants (list of participants will soon follow) r
stressed two broad and inter-related issues:
1. Strategies for improving: the effectiveness ofPell Grants through better
marketing and outreach to middle and high-school students which could
expand college-going among Pell-eligible youth; and also the interaction of
Pell with the various higher-education tax credits and proposed changes in
federal student loan programs.
2. We shall also discuss new efforts which seek to improve and develop more
qualified teachers to serve in urban and rural communities. One very
promising example is the new initiative the Woodrow Wilson Fellowship
Foundation has undertaken in several states.
Of course there are st111 several other issues which you and your colleagues may
wish the group to consider. So please let me know your reactions to the above
topics as well as to others you may wish to discuss.
The meeting will take place at 12:00 noon in the St. Louis Room. Because the
Secretary's schedule is tight I have encouraged all participants to be prompt.
I look fotward to hearing from you and seeing you once again.

We have extended this meeting until 11 :00 to accomodate all agenda items (introduction
of staff; ARRA, possibly including the metrics; Race to the Top/Innovation; ESEA and the
Listening Tour; Budget/Appropriations), but the introduction portion should be completed in
the first half-hour for those of you who need to leave early. For those we need to lead the
latter pieces of the meeting, we will connect with your schedulers individually, and we hope
to circulate a draft agenda soon.
If you have already accepted for the first hour of this, there is no need to respond again.
Thanks for your patience.
All ,
As you may have already heard, the Department plans to hold monthly meetings with our
education stakeholders (mostly association senior staff) across K-12, higher ed, civil
rights, advocacy, and disability sectors. The idea is that each month we would invite
stakeholders in to hear directly from them what their current issues are, and to provide
them with an update them on our current activities.
For this first meeting, Arne will kick it off, followed by an introduction of each of you as
members of his senior staff. Whi le the agenda is still being fleshed out, this wi ll be a key
part of the meeting, so we wanted to let you know about it now.
Please respond to this e-mail regarding your avai lability. Thanks so much.

sponsors, I want to thank you for serving as the opening keynote speaker for the National
Leadership Forum on June 2. Your remarks set the perfect tone for the subsequent
discussion by the attendees. The challenges you put forth and your thoughts how to bring
together all the entities working to educate and train the American workforce generated
excellent dialogue throughout the day. I appreciated your willingness to take questions
from the audience.
Attached is the concept paper on "Best Practices" that ACTE forwarded to Education
Secretary Arne Duncan in April. We developed this paper in response to the Secretary's
call to highlight and transfer best practice- and to focus on those things that are "proven to
work" at both the secondary and postsecondary levels. We have carefully assessed how
the varied institutions that provide career and technical education could join forces in
meeting the objectives emphasized by the Department of Education. As part of our
thinking we have also looked at how we could best work to both expand the capacity as
well as enhance the outcomes of the career and technical at the secondary and
postsecondary system.
I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you and Deputy Assistant Secretary,
OVAE, Glenn Cummings to explore how ACTE can bring its experience and expertise and
become actively engaged in the efforts of the Department of Education. Career and
technical education (CTE) provides the relevance and relationships necessary within a
rigorous curriculum that facilitates the success for every student. CTE is the engine that
drives the American workforce at all education levels.
We will contact your office to find a date that is mutually available for all of us. I look
forward to continuing our discussion.
Once again, thank you for your participation in the National Leadership Forum. I will share
with you the summary of the discussions and the key strategies agreed upon by the
attendees once it is completed. I will also send you a copy of the video from the Forum. It
was an exciting day and the beginning to a broad consensus of steps to be taken to re-skill
America.

Larry Johnson, Dean of the College of Education at the University of Cincinnati (UC) will be
in Washington D.C. on June 18th and on June 23rd. He would like to meet with Deputy
Undersecretary Shireman if he is available during those times.
Larry leads many of UC's creative and innovative college access and completion programs
including the new Living and Learning Community for First-Generation College Students at
UC (http://www.uc.edu/News/NR.aspx?ID=8811); a UC program to support entry and
completion in higher education for foster children (http://www.uc.edu/news/NR.aspx?id=
1 0236); and the STRIVE program, which supports education efforts and programs through
cradle to career throughout the Cincinnati region (http://www.strivetogether.org/) .
Larry would very much like to meet with Bob to discuss these programs and how they may
fit into President Obama's education initiatives.
Right now, Larry is available between 2:30pm and 5:30pm on Thursday, 6/18 and then will
be back in DC sometime on June 23rd (I don't have his availability yet for that day).
Please let me know if Bob would be willing to meet with him. I think Larry personifies the
kinds of creative teacher training and college access initiatives that President Obama and
Secretary Duncan are beginning to lay the ground work for and I believe it would be a
productive meeting.
Thank you for your help with this request!

We very much want to set up a meeting with him and Deputy Under Secretary Shireman.
Unfortunately, our CEO is commited to a previously-scheduled, long-planned trip outside
the country that would make it impossible to meet on July 1. In fact , he won't get back until
mid-July.
It is for that reason that I suggested that the meeting be scheduled some time during the
week of July 20. Please let me know if we might arrange something then.
We very much appreciate the offer to meet earlier, and your efforts and those of the
Deputy Assistant Secretary.

I am pleased to invite you to a roundtable at the Brookings Institution on July 29, from
12:15-5:00 PM, to discuss approaches to creating linked education-workforce longitudinal
data systems. As you know well, such systems have the potential to enable educators,
employers, and education and workforce system stakeholders to accurately assess the
career outcomes of a variety of educational pathways and to make improved program and
policy decisions accordingly.
The aim of the roundtable is to create consensus regarding the desirability and feasibility
of longitudinal education-workforce data systems, the near-term opportunities and
challenges in building such systems, and next steps for addressing these opportunities
and challenges.
At present, several federal agencies are or are seeking to become active in enabling such
systems:

* The U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics has
supported the creation of state longitudinal education data systems for some time. It is
now encouraging the linkage of education and workforce data.
* The Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration has requested
FY201 0 funds for a Workforce Data Quality Initiative to "provide competitive grants to
support the development of longitudinal data systems that integrate education and
workforce data."
* The Census Bureau's Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership hopes to
build a job-to-job flows tool that tracks the movement of workers in the labor market (with
industry, location, and occupational information) .
Each of these organizations is invited to the roundtable, as are the Office of Management
and Budget and two key state LED partners, the labor market information agency directors
from Washington State and Maine.
National nonprofit organizations that encourage or facilitate the development of education-
workforce longitudinal data systems also are invited to the roundtable. These include: Data
Quality Campaign, Gates Foundation, Georgetown University Center for Education and the
Workforce, Manufacturing Institute (National Association of Manufacturers), Jobs for the
Future, Working Poor Families Project, Council for Adult and Experiential Learning, Center
for Energy Workforce Development, American Institutes for Research, Western Interstate
Commission for Higher Education, Community College Research Center, National Center
for Higher Education Management Systems, Postsecondary Electronics Standards
Council, and the Brookings Institution.
A buffet lunch and the opportunity to network will be available from 12:15-1:00 PM, we will
begin the roundtable at 1:00 PM. To reduce the time needed for introductions, in the next
week participants will be asked to provide background materials on organizational efforts
for inclusion in a .pdf reference book that will be distributed prior to the event.
I hope you will be able to attend this exciting event and look forward to hearing from you.

James-
We have had a chance to review the President's Community College Initiative and the
House Democrats' Reconciliation package. We are talking with several Democrats on the
Education and Labor Committee about the possibility of the inclusion of TRIO retention
funding (the Student Support Services program) as a part of the final package that is
reported out of the committee. It was clear in our meeting that you understand the
importance of personalized, intensive services and the role they play in graduating low-
income students. We trust that your position on the attached proposal could well be
determinative. Thanks for your consideration.

To follow-up on the email from Margot, below is the process for correcting information on
previous timesheets by calculating comp time/credit hours from previous pay periods.
See your Executive Officer for copies of your timesheets. Please note that it may take
a while for them to pull together all of this information so please be patient if they do not
have the timesheets readily available.
Review each timesheet to see if you feel you should have earned credit hours or comp
time for hours that you worked based off of the guidelines distributed by Margot. Please
note that you are not just adding earned credit hours or comp time but may also change
time-off you may have previously recorded as annual leave to using these other types of
hours. For example, if you were out of the office on 7/30 and had originally recorded it as
using eight annual leave hours, you can instead use the comp ti me/credit hours you had
earned. Please also keep in mind that you can only earn comp time if your manager
ordered you to work those additional hours. If you were not ordered to work the additional
time, the hours should be recorded as credit hours. You can only earn a maximum of two
credit hours per weekday during the hours of 6:30am-8:00pm.
Make manual edits to the timesheets by crossing off the incorrect information and
manually writing-in the adjustments and new totals. You must use red ink to make these
corrections. Have your supervisor sign and date (also in red) the edited timesheet below
their original signature. If you have switched supervisors since you started at ED, have the
person who was your supervisor during that pay period sign the edited timesheet. If that
supervisor is no longer with the Department, it is fine to have your new one sign for
approval instead. Attached is a sample adjusted timesheet.
If you feel you have earned comp time duri ng a pay period, you must also complete
the Overtime/Comp Time Request and Authorization form (provided in Margot's email) .
Note that going forward this form will be completed by your supervisor BEFORE you have
earned comp time. However, to expedite this process, you should prepare the form and
have your supervisor sign-off. This form must be done for each individual pay period for
which you are requesting comp time approval. Attached is a sample completed form.
Also attached is a Reconciliation Tracker spreadsheet to help you track the
accumulation of credit hours, comp time and annual leave you have gained back from pay
period to pay period. I have edited the tab for the pay period that corresponds to the
attached sample timesheet and comp time authorization form as an example. Please
make sure to delete this sample data once you start editing the spreadsheet as it will skew
your totals if you do not.
o You must enter the data on this spreadsheet for every single day that you have made
a change to your timesheet.
o There are several formulas on the spreadsheet: carry over from previous pay periods,
carry over to the next pay peri od, the total to-date annual leave adjustment, and the total
annual leave available. You must enter all of the information into the table itself manually
(including any annual leave you are gaining back).
o If you would like to track your total annual leave available, the bottom section in yellow
provides a tool for that purpose. You must enter manually the number of hours you have
accrued each pay period (Schedule Cs earn four annual leave hours per pay period) and
any annual leave you have already used.
o The spreadsheet does not take into account the per pay period cap on comp time of
earning the equivalent of a GS 15, step 10 as it is impossible to set up a formula that
accounts for everyone's specific pay grades. Attached is a Maximum Comp Time
spreadsheet that details how many hours per pay period an employee who is at grade 15
on the scale can earn each pay period before they hit the cap. If you are not a 15 but are
concerned that you may have reached your cap in a pay period, please see your Executive

Officer.
Please turn in all forms to your Executive Officer stapling together the (1) edited
timesheet as a cover with the (2) authorization form and the (3) reconciliation tracker
spreadsheet by pay period. Make sure to do this packet for each pay period you are doing
adjustments for and do not combine different pay periods together. Make sure that the
timesheet and authorization form have both been signed by your supervisor.
It will take several weeks at minimum for these corrections to appear on your pay stub as
they need to be done by the payroll department in Denver. You will want to continue to do
the Reconciliation Tracker spreadsheet for every pay period going forward until the
corrections have been updated. Due to system limitations, you are only able to use hours
that are available as reflected on your pay stub. For example, you may have 10 annual
leave hours available on your pay stub and no credit hours. However, during this
correction process you find that you actually have 24 credit hours avai lable and you wish to
take two days off of work. You must record those two days as annual leave (resulting in
an advance of leave of 6 hours) . You would then complete the reconciliation spreadsheet
for that pay period to reflect changing the 16 hours used from annual leave to credit hours.
You can visit https://www.employeeexpress.gov/ to view the number of hours the system
shows you have avai lable. (If you cannot log into Employee Express, please see your
Executive Officer.)
Please know that we recognize this process is very confusing. We are happy to help
answer individual questions on a case-by-case basis (after you have gone through the
training). Please also be patient with those trying to help you through this process as there
are many people affected by this policy.

*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
Hello all,
In the last week of August and the first week of September, Susan Winchell of the Office
of the General Counsel will conduct mandatory Ethics Refresher courses for all political
appointees who started before June 1. (If you started after June 1, you are welcome to
attend but it is optional.) The refresher courses will cover gifts, conflicts, outside activities,
prohibited sources and more. The idea behind the sessions is that, several months into
our employment here, we will have more pressing, real-life questions about these policies
than we did on our first day on the job, and hence more reason to remember and retain the
rules.
It is mandatory for political appointees with start dates before June 1 to attend ONE of the
briefings, not all. They will be offered at the following times:
Monday, August 24 - 11 :00 - 12:00 pm - Secretary's Conference Room
Thursday, August 27- 1:30-2:30 pm- Secretary's Conference Room
Monday, August 31 -1:00-2:00 pm- Secretary's Conference Room
Tuesday, September 1 -3:30-4:40 pm- Secretary's Conference Room
Wednesday, September 2-1:00-2:00 pm- PCP-6084
Shortly, I will invite you all to an Outlook event for each of these briefings. You only need
to accept the one you plan to attend.
Thank you for making time for this!
Best,
Hallie

This is less a meeting about the content of what to include in the FTC guides and more a
conversation about how to proceed to best protect consumer interests. A couple of
questions we will go over -
* How/should/can we make reference to the content of the FTC guidance in our Title IV
regs?
* Since the potential for abuse of training funds is relevant to our colleagues in HHS,
VA , DOL, DOD- should there be an Exec Order or some other consumer protection
deliverable from the WH?
* We can also use the time for David to give a brief synopsis of the disturbing
emergence of "loan insurance programs" for (fed) loans that are already insured
