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

Outlying areas, freely associated States, and the Secretary of the Interior (Sec. 300.701)

Comment: None.

Discussion: The requirements of Part B of the Act that were listed in the NPRM under Sec. 300.701(a)(1)(ii)(A)(1) through (5) did not include all of the requirements that apply to freely associated States. To ensure that freely associated States do not interpret these regulations as including all of the requirements in Part B of the Act that apply to them, we are removing these provisions. Section 300.701(a)(1)(ii) and (2) clarifies that, consistent with section 611(b)(1)(A)(ii) of the Act, freely associated States must meet the applicable requirements that apply to States under Part B of the Act.

Changes: We have removed paragraphs (1) through (5) in Sec. 300.701(a)(1)(ii)(A).
