Guidelines for the Formation of the Title VI Lau Steering Committee: Organizational Approach to Develop an Educational Master Plan. Phase II Manual.
Fierro, Leonard; And Others
Two steps in meeting the requirements of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 are discussed: the formation and role of a Title VI Lau Steerinq Committee, and the involvement of the community in program implementation. Three models for the selection of steering committee members are presented, and suggested decision-making processes are offered. An outline for a community training and orientation workshop is included. The formation of a community task force is viewed as central to bringing all elements of the educational and wider community together to provide for the educational needs of non- and limited-English-speaking students. Ways to coordinate and occupy the task force are presented. These steps in program implementation are designed to conform with the demands of a specific time line. An introduction to the Lau Center six-phase scheme for full program implementation is included. (JB)
