Federal Law and Student Involvement

Following are two juicy nuggets of law I’ve poached from this report regarding federal law and student involvement.

  • 20 U.S.C. §6314(b)(2)(B)(ii) – Provides for appropriate student involvement in development of the Title I program plan in secondary schools, though with none of the specificity applicable to parents. 
  • Provisions of the Perkins Act require local plan description of how students, as well as parents and others, are involved in development, implementation, and evaluation of programs assisted under the Act and how they are effectively informed about, and assisted in understanding the requirements of the Act. States are required to involve students and others in development of the state plan and for developing effective activities and procedures, including access to information needed to use them, to allow students and others to participate in State and local decisions that relate to State plan development.
