To better serve administrators, teaching staff, parents, and others active in Title VII bilingual education in a region comprised of New Mexico and parts of Arizona, Utah, and Colorado in which the principal tribes are Apache, Navajo, and Pueblo, the 1979-80 Handbook provides a complete listing and explanation of American Indian Bilingual Education Center (AIBEC) goals and objectives, a complete description of AIBEC services, and step-by-step procedures for requesting those services. The Handbook defines the AIBEC service delivery systems in terms of overall goals and objectives which involve: (1) updating programmatic needs assessment; (2) providing training, technical, and programmatic assistance coordinated with other agencies; (3) pilot testing of instructional materials; (4) maintaining and improving service area communications systems; (5) collecting and disseminating American Indian bilingual education materials via the AIBEC Materials Bank; (6) training parents; (7) assisting institutions of higher education (IHEs) in developing teacher training programs and certification standards; (8) completing comparative analysis and linguistic survey of service area languages; and (9) aiding local education agencies (LEAs) in responding to new Title VII legislation requirements. Appendices contain sample request and evaluation forms; lists of regional LEAs, IHEs, and State Education Agencies; and addresses of General Assistance Centers. (NEC)
