Poehlman, Charles H.
After a 2-page history of the Johnson-O'Malley Act, which provides funds for Indian children attending public schools, basic objectives for educational programs, the problems encountered in developing these programs, and accompanying recommendations are discussed. Tabular reports of Johnson-O'Malley (JOM) expenditures are then presented in composite and by school district, and beneficiaries of special fund allocations are enumerated. Three successful programs for Indian children in Nevada are described: (1) the Moapa Summer Educational-Recreational Program (Clark County School District), (2) the Summer Reading Program for Primary Students (a 1-school program in Lyon County School District), and (3) the Indian Pre-School Summer Education Program (Churchill County School District). Public Law 89-10 Title I programs serving Indian children in Nevada are listed; also presented are school district news (by district), enrollment and attendance data (by district), results of the Nevada Indian Dropout Study, Nevada's plan for distribution of JOM contract funds, and procedures for determination of state apportionment for Nevada public schools. Related documents are ED 013 147, ED 032 143, ED 032 186, and ED 044 218. (MJB)
