Community and Parent Decision-Making - A Review: Action Guide for Parents and Communities

Oct 29, 2006
  • Description

In many sections NCLB requires that community and parents be involved and this involvement is usually called "consultation". Consultation requirements occur on a number of different levels -- federal, state and local school district levels, and often call for "representatives" of parents and/or the community to be selected to advise NCLB officials. Many of the community and parent decision-making opportunities pertain to Title I, but many other programs under NCLB, not part of Title I, require parent and community consultation as well. This Brief contains only those parent and community roles that require ACTION, and does not include the various provisions where state and local school districts must provide "information."
