A bilingual handbook for Title I migrant Parent Advisory Councils (PACs) was designed to be used by administrators, teachers, consultants and parents in organizing and training PACs at local, district, and state levels. All information is duplicated in separate English and Spanish sections.

Procedures for conducting a meeting are explained in the third section. The fourth part describes evaluation types, parents' role in project evaluation, and evaluation of PACs. Title I application procedures, budget guidelines, and sample application forms are given in the fifth part. The sixth section contains forms and activity guidelines including a parent visitation checklist, parent questionnaire, task sheet, test for migrant PAC members, conference/workshop report form, minutes form, committee report form, treasurer report form, parent evaluation checklist, getting-to-know-you activities, and meeting procedures. A seventh section gives sample by-laws for PACs in Oregon and in McAllen and Dallas, Texas. A 59-item glossary comprises the eighth section. An 8-item list of information sources concludes the handbook. (MH)
