Student Rights and Responsibilities. A Progress Report. Research and Evaluation Report Series No. 25-B.
Bureau of Indian Affairs (Dept. of Interior), Albuquerque, NM.
In recent years, the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) has had to re-examine its position regarding the current legal status of youth attending school. Court actions, although still indecisive on this point, precede a new era of school-student relationships which the BIA's Office of Indian Education Programs holds will assure improved conditions for the total school community. The BIA commenced on a course which has led to the development of Student Rights and Responsibilities Regulatory Procedures. A strong foundation was designed to assess existing programs, court decisions, legal opinions, and Indian student and community viewpoints. Steps were taken to arrive at a Student Rights and Responsibilities Proposal with nationwide support. This document reports the BIA's progress in providing areas and local schools with Guidelines and legal support to establish Student Rights and Responsibilities Programs. It consists of background information on BIA student rights and responsibilities, memos to individuals or groups connected with the process, drafts of the proposed section to the Indian Affairs manual and the 25 CFR 35 for the Federal Register, and a pertinent section of Public Law 90-23 (Administrative Procedure Act).
