Comments sought on No Child Left Behind Act rules
Thursday, February 26, 2004

The Bureau of Indian Affairs is taking comments until June 24 on proposed regulations under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, and March 26 on an information collection requets related to the rule.

According to a notice published in the Federal Register yesterday, the rules address six issues: They are: 1) Defining adequate yearly progress, which is the measurement for determining that schools are providing quality education; 2) establishing separate geographic attendance areas for Bureau-funded schools; 3) establishing a formula for determining the minimum amount necessary to fund Bureau- funded schools; 4) establishing a system of direct funding and support of all Bureau-funded schools under the formula established in the Act; 5) establishing guidelines to ensure the Constitutional and civil rights of Indian students; and 6) establishing a method for administering grants to tribally controlled schools.

The rules were developed by a negotiated rulemaking committee composed of federal and tribal representatives.

To submit comments electronically, visit https://doi1.ios.doi.gov/blm/rc3.nsf/tabularForm?OpenForm and follow the directions.
