state that if an EIS provider or a public agency provides any services to a child or any family member of that child, that EIS provider or public agency may not act as the

parent for that child. We have replaced “early

intervention services or other services” in proposed

§303.27(b)(2) with “any services” in new §303.27(b)(2).

This change is necessary to make clear that if a public agency provides services other than early intervention services to a family member of the child, that public agency may not serve as the parent for that child.

This change strengthens protections against potential conflicts of interest by providing that a public agency that provides services to a child or any family member of that child cannot act as the parent under these regulations.

Changes: We have replaced in §303.27(b)(2) the phrase “an

EIS provider or public agency that provides early intervention or other services to a child or any family

member of that child may not act as the parent” with “if an

EIS provider or a public agency provides any services to a child or any family member of that child, that EIS provider

or public agency may not act as the parent for that child.”

Comment: Some commenters requested that the phrase “other

services” as used in proposed §303.27(b)(2) be replaced
