Department of Education’s Office of Indian Education (OIE)–Aligning Indian Parent Committee Needs To Efficient and Effective Supports: Learning from Vetted Practices to Resolve Barriers

March 22 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Indian Education Formula Team is seeking stakeholder input to identify ways the OIE can support the role of Indian Parent Committees (IPCs). When ESEA was reauthorized in 2015, it removed the Indian Parent Committee’s (IPC) post-award oversight causing a grantee’s (e.g., local education agency/LEA, Tribe, BIE) administrative leadership employees to have full authority over the grant’s funded activities and services after the entity receives the funds each year (6114)(c)(4)(A-C)
