Grantee and delegate agencies are expected to involve parents in every step of the process for selecting community representatives. Parents may be involved, for example, in discussions of the issues of interest and types of community representatives desired in the coming year, as well as in developing methods for soliciting and screening potential candidates.
Both the Policy Committee and Policy Council must be comprised with two types of representatives: parents of currently enrolled children and community representatives; at least 51% of the members of each policy group must be parents of currently enrolled children.
