By-Laws of the Parent Advisory Councils Navajo (BIA) Schools.
Bureau of Indian Affairs (Dept. of Interior), Window Rock, AZ.
To promote maximum Title I services to Navajo students attending the Navajo Area Bureau of Indian Affairs Schools, by-laws for the establishment and operation of a Parent Advisory Council (PAC) have been prepared. Council objectives are to develop good liaison and communication between students' parents and the local school administration; promote and maintain an environment which will encourage students to progress to their maximum levels of academic, social, and vocational competence; secure parent advisory participation in development, operation, and evaluation of special Title I programs for the educationally disadvantaged and under-achievers; and assist in placing priority and emphasis on services for the most severely educationally deprived students. Duties include advising the school of educational deficiencies the PAC feels students may possess resulting in part from poverty, isolation, neglect, or language and cultural differences; reviewing all final proposed Title I programs for content, appropriateness, and relative worth; informing students' parents of PAC actions and the Title I program; and acting on complaints alleging misuse of Title I funds. Other by-law articles outline PAC size, member qualifications, election procedures, selection of members to fill vacancies, term of office, action for removal of members for cause, meeting requirements, conduct of business, offices and duties of each officer, compensation of PAC members, and Title I complaint procedures.
