The Bureau of Indian Affairs is holding three meetings to discuss the implementation of the No Child Left Behind Act for Indian Country.

The meetings are for the negotiated rule-making committee that was formed by the education reform act. A group of federal and Indian educators is developing regulations to carry out the act's goals.

The next three meetings will take place July 14-18, 2003 in Minneapolis, Minnesota; August 21-24 in Seattle, Washington; and September 15-19 in Nashville, Tennessee. A notice of the meetings is published in today's Federal Register.
