    On page 12060, we included a footnote providing the Department's 
interpretation of the core academic subject of science as including 
STEM education (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) 
which encompasses a wide range of disciplines. As an example of those 
disciplines, we intended to include computer science rather than 
science. To correct this error, the Department makes the following 
correction to the March 12 Final Rule:
    On page 12060, in the third column, under the heading Absolute 
Priority 3--Innovations That Complement the Implementation of High 
Standards and High-Quality Assessments, in footnote number eight, in 
line six, ``including science'' is replaced with ``including computer 
    Program Authority: Section 14007 of division A of the American 
Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, Public Law No. 111-5, as amended 
by section 307 of division D of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 
2010, Public Law 111-117.
