Stout, Irving W.; Pratt, Wayne T.
The recommendations and decisions identified in this document are the decisions of the Borrego Pass, New Mexico, School Board. The board was assisted by counsultants who researched both the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) and public school practices in the various phases of elementary school operations. Generally, the following format is followed in the document concerning each area of school operation: (1) Federal law, regulation, and/or BIA practice; (2) New Mexico law, regulation, and/or Gallup-McKinley County school practice; and (3) the proposed policy of the Borrego Pass School Board. Areas of school operation covered are administrative services (e.g., construction, maintenance, transportation, certification, recordkeeping, and budgeting); program services (e.g., accreditation, bilingual instruction, guidance, preschool and adult education, and summer school); and support services (e.g., health services, food policies, and social services). The statements are not all-inclusive but are intended only to introduce school board members to the kinds of policy decisions that must be made when a local school board takes over full or partial control of a BIA school. Inlcuded are 31 relevant appendices. (LS)
