A survey of educational needs by the South Central Region Educational Laboratory assigned high priority to provision of bilingual preschool experiences for Cherokee Indian children and to home-school-community involvement of their parents. Established in March 1968, the Bilingual Family School in Adair County, Oklahoma, developed criterion objectives for language arts, music, art, social studies, science, health, math, and self-concept. The instructional program, consisting of four and one-half hours of the school day, emphasized language development and individual exploration of educational materials. Parent activities included daily exposure to the childrens' program in addition to studying the Cherokee language, developing teaching aids, learning handcrafts, and receiving information on sanitation and nutrition.
