U.S. Department of Education: Promoting Educational Excellence for all Americans

The definition of parent in Sec. 300.30 has been revised to substitute "biological" for "natural" each time it appears in the definition, and to add language clarifying that to be considered a parent under this definition a "guardian" must be a person generally authorized to act as the child's parent, or authorized to make educational decisions for the child.
