included statutory references to GEPA in §303.416(a), but
these references are not included in the corresponding Part B provisions in 34 CFR 300.624. The commenters requested that for consistency these citations be removed from
§303.416(a) or be added to the regulations under Part B of
Discussion: SEAs are aware of the applicability of GEPA to the Part B program. Therefore, it is not necessary to add these references to the Part B regulations. However, there may be lead agencies that are unaware of the applicability of GEPA to the Part C program; accordingly, it is important
that §303.416(a) identify the specific citations to those
GEPA and EDGAR provisions concerning the maintenance, use, disclosure, and destruction of records. Thus, we have revised the citation to GEPA provisions to refer to 20 U.S.C. 1232f, which contains fiscal recordkeeping requirements. Lead agencies that are not SEAs may be similarly unfamiliar with the provisions in parts 76 and 80 of EDGAR that apply to the early intervention records, including, for example, the recordkeeping requirements in 34 CFR 80.42(b).
Changes: We have revised the citation to GEPA provisions
in §303.416 to refer to 20 U.S.C. 1232f.
