Intended to give Parent Advisory Council (PAC) members exposure to their roles and responsibilities, the guide, written in Spanish and English, provides information on how to train PAC members on parliamentary procedures (Roberts Rules) and the importance of agendas and agenda construction. The guide's eight sections cover the rules/regulations, duties of the PAC, responsibilities of the operating agency, duties of the president, the necessity for an agenda, typical meeting agenda, parliamentary procedures, four tips in training parents, the requirements for parental involvement, council requirements, the need to set standards at PAC meetings, definition of four types of motions, and procedures for deciding the outcome of the motion. Examples of the various motions are provided. Some suggestions on how to improve parental involvement in the Migrant Education Program are appended. The suggested ideas, resulting from a national institute held for Title VII bilingual program administrators, cover ways to involve the PAC in a local migrant program, basic points that parents should be made aware of in PAC training sessions, how to relate with migrant parents, concerns of migrant parents regarding the migrant program, and kinds of strategies that can be used to minimize and eliminate confrontations between PAC's and school districts.
