Legislation Status 
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The No Child Left Behind School Facilities and Construction Negotiated Rulemaking Committee accomplishes its purpose by meeting to prepare reports for the Secretary of the Interior regarding Bureau-funded school facilities.
How is membership balanced?*The Secretary chose from nominations submitted by Indian tribes and others whose students attend Bureau-funded schools (operated either by the Bureau, or by a tribe through a contract or grant). To the maximum extent possible, the proportional representation of tribes on the committee reflects the proportionate share of students from tribes served by the Bureau-funded school facilities. In addition, the Secretary considered the balance of representation with regard to geographical location, size, and type of school and facility, as well as the interests of parents, teachers, administrators, and school board members, in selecting tribal committee representatives.
