Parent Councils for Migrant Education Under ESEA Title I Migrant Amendment. (Concilios de Padres para Educacion Migratoria bajo el Titulo I de ESEA.)
Minkler, Elton D.
An educational program's quality and relevance can be guaranteed only if the needs of the students it serves are accommodated. To be certain that the program meets these needs, parents and students must be involved in its planning and implementation. One vehicle to achieve this goal is the parent advisory council. Prepared for the parents and other members of communities administering Title I, Migrant Amendment (Title IM Elementary and Secondary Education Act) education and support service programs, this booklet outlines the procedures for organizing parent advisory councils. The guidelines and regulations governing parental and community involvement in planning and administering Title IM programs are explained. The composition, formation, and duties of parent councils are discussed. Rather than detail comprehensive and finite guidelines, the booklet presents general information to: (1) help parents and community members to better understand the importance of their involvement in planning and administering Title IM programs and (2) show how parents can participate.
