Pima Central School and Blackwater School, Sacaton, Arizona. The National Study of American Indian Education, Series I, No. 22. Final Report.
Brown, Christine; Havighurst, Robert J.
As part of the Final Report of the National Study of American Indian Education, this background study provides information on the Pima Central and Blackwater schools on the Gila River reservation south of Phoenix, Arizona. Socioeconomic and community background data are given on location and climate, transportation, government, housing, and economy. A description of the Pima Central School, operated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), discusses student transportation, enrollment, staff size, physical structure, administration, curriculum, and extracurricular activities. The Pima Central School, it is predicted, will become a local public school and no longer will be operated by the BIA. The second school reported upon, the BIA-operated Blackwater School located 5 miles east of Sacaton, Arizona, has only a kindergarten and first grade. The document contains 1 map. (AL)
