Migrant Parents' Rights and Responsibilities: A Handbook = Manual de los Derechos y las Responsabilidades de Padres Migrantes.
Gonzalez, Ramon, Comp.
Written in English and Spanish, the handbook is intended to (1) provide useful information from numerous sources to school administrators, education program staff, and home-school liaison personnel; and (2) assist school staff in informing migrant parents about their rights and responsibilities, both as members of parent advisory councils (PACs) and as individuals, in their children's education. Topics include: the history of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title I, the Migrant Amendment, and the PACs; migrant education regulations pertaining to client identification and the Migrant Student Record Transfer System; the role of parents and the PACs in migrant education; how parents can demand their rights; parents' responsibility as members of the PAC; complaint procedures if the migrant education program is not providing adequate services; the parents' right to inspect their child's school records; the right of other individuals to migrant children's records; records maintained by the school on migrant children; and parents' rights if the privacy of their children's records is violated. The handbook includes a question-and-answer section, three examples of written complaints, a glossary of terms commonly used in migrant education, a list of references used in the handbook, and a 6-item bibliography of other useful publications.
