Title IX: Indian Education Formula Grant. Parent Committee Roles & Responsibilities.
Alaska Comprehensive Regional Assistance Center, Juneau.
The purpose of the Title IX parent committee, as mandated by the Indian Education Act of 1972, is to work with local school districts in the development and implementation of Title IX formula grant projects that meet "the special educational and culturally related academic needs" of Native American students. This document outlines the role and responsibilities of the parent committee (PC). At least 51% of PC members must be parents; one member must be a teacher; and one member must be an American Indian or Alaska Native secondary school student. PC functions include establishing committee by-laws; assisting the local education agency (LEA) in grant development and proposals, including needs assessment, goals and objectives, and activities; participating in project evaluation and monitoring; working closely with the LEA; and acting as liaison between the LEA and the community. Each of these PC functions is described in detail. LEA and PC responsibilities are listed, and a chart outlines month-by-month duties of Title IX project staff and PC members. (SAS)
