Comment: One commenter recommended clarifying that the

list of primary referral sources in new §303.303(c)

(proposed §303.302(c)) is not an inclusive list and that a

lead agency may include other primary referral sources in its child find system. Additionally, two commenters

recommended adding McKinney-Vento “local educational agency

liaisons,” as defined in 42 U.S.C. 11432(g)(6), as primary

referral sources along with LEAs and schools in new

§303.303(c)(5) (proposed §303.302(c)(5)).

Discussion: We agree with the commenter that new

§303.303(c) (proposed §303.302(c)) is intended to be a non-

exhaustive list of primary referral sources and that a lead agency may include other primary referral sources in its

child find system. The term include, as defined in §303.18

and used in the introductory text in new §303.303(c)

(proposed §303.302(c)), means that the items named are not

all of the possible items that are covered, whether like or unlike the ones named.

We decline to add McKinney-Vento local educational agency liaisons, as defined in 42 U.S.C. 11432(g)(6), to

new §303.303(c)(5) (proposed §303.302(c)(5)), as requested,

because these liaisons work with LEAs and school-age
