Impacting School Climate Through Parent Involvement.
Richards, Wanda G.
A consortium of parent councils, developed in the Menominee Indian School District (MISD) in Keshena, Wisconsin, is described. MISD was a participant in a group of member schools that were entitled to purchase various federal services. MISD had problems concerning the required formation of parent councils for participating in federal programs. The problem was shared by other directors of fedreal programs, and it was decided to include some overlapping memberships among programs receiving federal aid, subsequently forming the Association of Parent Advisory Councils in the area. The structure and organization of the Council is described, and some of the actions it has taken to increase parent involvement in the consortium schools are discussed. (JD)
