Organizando Comites Consejeros de Padres Para Programas de Educacion Migrante (Organizing Parent Advisory Committees for Migrant Education Programs).
In order to help parents and community members participate more effectively and better understand the importance of their involvement in the planning and administration of migrant education programs in Oregon, the English-Spanish booklet suggests general procedures for organizing, leading, and training Parent Advisory Committees (PACs), required by the 1978 Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) amendments in states administering Title I-Migrant funds. The booklet delineates the required composition of PACs and explains the six basic steps in PAC establishment: preparation; membership; training; organization; school officials support; and evaluation of effectiveness. The duties of the PAC and of participating school personnel are listed. A suggested model for complete by-laws for Title I-Migrant PACs is included in the appendices, along with many suggestions for planning effective meetings and being an effective leader. Statistics and information regarding current migrant child education services in Oregon are also given. In addition, appendices include a chart indicating who the PAC is to advise; an outline of standard agenda preparation; a map of 1979 migrant education sites in Oregon; and a glossary of 22 terms related to migrant education. The booklet has been designed to meet basic needs in all migrant education programs throughout Oregon, but can be modified to suit the needs of individual programs. (SB)
