Reporting Instruments and Instructions
Attached please find the revised FY 2008 704 Report Dear Colleague and
sheet. The Dear Colleague letter
includes web links to the 704 Report instruments and instructions,
Parts I and II. The letter also provides 704 Report submittal
instructions and information about a national training for DSUs,
SILCs and CILs scheduled for November 13 and November 20, 2008.
The FY 2008 704 Report is identical to the one approved in 2006,
except for changes in the race and ethnicity sections in subpart
II. These changes were required by the Office of Management
and Budget, as reflected in the U.S. Department of Education’s
final guidance published in the Federal Register on October 19,
2007. Race and ethnicity reporting directions have been incorporated
in the revised 704 Report instructions.
Also, starting on November 7, 2008, DSUs, SILCs and CILs will
be able to complete and submit the 704 Report directly online through
the RSA Management Information System (MIS). Additional information
is provided in the Dear Colleague letter.
