(c) Impartiality of mediator.
(1) An individual who serves as a mediator under this part—
(i) May not be an employee of the SEA or the LEA that is involved in the education or care of the child; and
(ii) Must not have a personal or professional interest that conflicts with the person’s objectivity.
(2) A person who otherwise qualifies as a mediator is not an employee of an LEA or State agency described under §300.228 solely because he or she is paid by the agency to serve as a mediator. [71 FR 46753, Aug. 14, 2006, as amended at 72 FR 61307, Oct. 30, 2007]
