National Advisory Council on Indian Education (NACIE), U.S. Department of Education.
Notice of closed meeting.
This notice sets forth the schedule and proposed agenda of an upcoming closed meeting of the National Advisory Council on Indian Education (the Council) and is intended to notify the general public. This notice also describes the functions of the Council. Notice of the Council's meetings is required under Section 10(a)(2) of the Federal Advisory Committee Act and by the Council's charter. This notice is appearing in the Federal Register less than 15 days prior to the meeting date due to scheduling conflicts and the importance of selecting a new Director for the Office of Indian Education in a timely manner.
Agenda: The Council will meet in a closed teleconference session to discuss personnel issues related to the selection of the Director for the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Indian Education. The Council will be discussing issues that relate solely to the internal personnel rules and practices of an agency. The Council is likely to disclose information of a personal nature where disclosure would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personnel privacy. The discussion must therefore be held in closed session under exemptions 2 and 6 of the Government in the Sunshine Act, 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(2) and (6).
Date and Time: December 12, 2006; 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., Eastern Standard Time.
