Handbook for Indian Parent Committees.
Miller, Louise; Gelardi, Sal
The 1980 handbook defines parental involvement and elaborates on the functions and authority of parent committees. Funding sources which are most likely to require American Indian parent committees are identified as: Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title I; Johnson-O'Malley; and Indian Education, Title IV-A. Information is provided on: getting parents involved, membership, local education agency responsibilities, parent committee responsibilities, federal requirements for parent committees, committee organization, bylaws, grievance procedures, activities of parent committees, training needs for parent committees, community involvement, and the use of volunteers. Examples of checklists for a meeting and for a needs assessment for parent training; a training assessment survey instrument; a questionnaire for assessing parent volunteer skills, attitudes, and knowledge of the school program; and a workshop evaluation form are provided. Appendices include sample bylaws, a suggested format for an agenda, and a sample of an actual grievance procedure. (AH)
