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

Establishment of advisory board (Sec. 300.714)

Comment: One commenter requested definitions of "collaboration" and "collaborated teachers."

Discussion: We do not believe it is necessary to define "collaboration" in these regulations, because it is a commonly used term, which means working jointly with others, especially in an intellectual endeavor. Although the Act does not prohibit the Department from regulating on this issue, we do not believe it is necessary. The term "collaborated teachers" is not used in the Act or these regulations and, thus, is not appropriate for inclusion in the definitions in these regulations.

Changes: None.
