Poehlman, Charles H.
A brief history is given of the Johnson-O'Malley Act, which provides funds for Indian children attending public schools, and Nevada's plan for distribution of these funds is discussed. Procedures for determination of state apportionment for Nevada public schools are included, as are the beneficiaries of the special fund allocations. Basic objectives for educational programs and the problems encountered in developing these programs are cited. Two programs for Indian children in Nevada are described: (1) the Summer Educational Program for Southern Paiute Children and (2) The First Ones, an educational television series for all school children in Nevada. (Lesson plans and a teacher's guide for the series are included in the document.) Public Law 89-10 Title I programs serving Indian children in Nevada are listed, and school district news, financial reports for 1969-70, enrollment data, and results of the 5-year dropout survey conclude the report.
