Migrant Education State and Local Parent Advisory Committees--A Partnership in Migrant Education.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Compensatory Education.
North Carolina created the State Migrant Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) in response to federal regulations regarding the establishment, membership, and function of PACs at the state and local level, and in order to consider the views of migrant parents regarding the planning, operation, and evaluation of the migrant education program. State and local education agencies (SEAs and LEAs) can involve migrant parents in program planning by seeking their opinions of student health and welfare, career plans, education materials, and program and curriculum changes. In terms of program operation, LEAs and SEAs can employ migrant parents in the program when possible, or use the parents as resource persons. As members of monitoring teams or as reviewers of test scores and evaluation reports, migrant parents can contribute to the evaluation of the migrant program. LEAs can also involve and cooperate with parents in many daily activities such as developing home resources, making materials, reading and tutoring, repairing and distributing clothing, and helping in class. The booklet contains the bylaws of the North Carolina State Migrant PAC, a statement of purpose for the group, and suggestions for maintaining the effectiveness of a PAC. (SB)
