Recommendations and Framework for Developing a Comprehensive Educational Master Plan to Comply with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, 1964. Lau Center Manual IV.
Ochoa, Alberto; And Others
The development of a program to comply with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is discussed. A master plan is offered that encompases a manifold effort in the areas of administrative organization, community relations, diagnosis of student needs, instructional program design, staff development, counseling and guidance, curriculum and materials development, and strategies for assessment and evaluation. For each of these areas, an extensive outline is presented which details goals and procedures. If followed, these procedures can produce compliance with Title VI in accordance with a specified time line, and enable a community to meet the educational needs of its non- and limited-English-speaking students. An overview of compliance procedures provides information about the legislative background of federal mandates. Appendices include: (1) samples of goals and objectives for the development of a compliance-oriented master plan, (2) a checklist of questions for selecting an oral language assessment instrument, (3) a suggested checklist for developing an educational plan to meet Title VI regulations, and (4) sample district skeletal plans for Title VI compliance.
