Your Children - Sus Ninos; Your Schools - Sus Escuelas. Centennial School District, San Luis, Colorado, June 1976.
Centennial School District R-1, San Luis, CO.
Do you feel that schools are only for teachers, principals, and people who have special training in education? Well, Centennial schools need help from parents. You don't need any special skills or training. All you have to do is care about making schools better places for children to learn. How can you help your children's schools do a better job? The various committees which give parents a voice about what happens in their schools are a good way for you to help. This bilingual guide discusses some of these committees. The Accountability Committee is responsible for finding out how good a job the district is doing in educating your children and how the quality of education can be improved. Advising the Board of Education on the district's Title I programs, the Title I Advisory Council participates in the planning of the Title I budget and educational program. The Board of Education is responsible for: making and enforcing rules for the whole district, hiring the school superintendent, and approving all money spent by the schools. The Bilingual/Bicultural Community Committee is involved in designing the Bilingual-Bicultural Program, screening the teachers and aides, and evaluating the program. The School Community Council, an advisory committee to the Urban/Rural School Development Program, participates in the planning and decision-making of Urban/Rural projects; has authority in the screening, hiring, and firing of the staff; and has final authority along with the Board of Education in determining how funds will be spent.
