A Manual for Navajo Community School Board Members.
Stout, Irving W., Ed.
In August of 1969, the Navajo Tribe adopted a school code pertaining to the development and operation of Navajo Community School Boards. The code provided the legal basis for such organization and its operation on the reservation. This document furnishes a broad general outline of the duties and responsibilities of Navajo School Board members. Included in the manual are (1) the proposed resolution of the Navajo Tribal Council, (2) Navajo educational goals, (3) procedures of operation of school boards, (4) a brief history of Navajo education (1870-1960), (5) aims and goals of Navajo community schools, (6) guidelines for establishing school boards, (7) information on board organization and procedures, (8) policies governing all boards, (9) board functions and duties, (10) finance and management data, (11) relationships of the school board, and (12) the Code of Ethics. In conclusion, the document provides an addendum on unification of local school boards in forming a school board association. (EL)
