(from Ch. 122, par. 14C-10)
Parent and community participation.
School districts shall provide for the maximum practical involvement of
parents of children in transitional bilingual education programs. Each
school district shall, accordingly, establish a parent advisory committee
which affords parents the opportunity effectively to express their views
and which ensures that such programs are planned, operated, and evaluated
with the involvement of, and in consultation with, parents of children
served by the programs. Such committees shall be composed of parents of
children enrolled in transitional bilingual education programs,
transitional bilingual education teachers, counselors, and representatives
from community groups; provided, however, that a majority of each committee
shall be parents of children enrolled in the transitional bilingual
education program. Once established, these committees shall autonomously carry out their affairs, including the election of officers and the establishment of internal rules, guidelines, and procedures.
