American Indian Education in Wisconsin, 1976-77: Thirtieth Annual Report. Johnson-O'Malley Program. Bulletin No. 9269.
Van Raalte, Robert C.; And Others
The annual report presents activities for the 1976-77 school year, the thirtieth year that the Johnson O'Malley Act (JOM) has provided impetus for the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) as a subcontractor to provide supplementary services necessary to carry out educational programs afforded Indian children in public schools. Part I provides historical background on the six tribes (Chippewa, Winnebago, Potawatomi, Oneida, Stockbridge-Munsee, and Menominee) served by DPI, along with a historical summary of the JOM Program in Wisconsin. The complete text of the State's plan for financial assistance under JOM emphasizes each program and/or project be developed with the student in mind in an attempt to meet special educational needs of each Indian child. Part II includes general statistical information on program budget, student enrollment by grade and school, and division of expenses for each school district. A narrative part summarizes goals, objectives, and anticipated developments of workshops conducted and conferences attended by JOM personnel and outlines functions of the Council on Indian Education to DPI. Part III summarizes by reservation six special program efforts (home-school coordinator, teacher aides, tutoring, special transportation, parental costs, study centers, and cultural enrichment) conducted in each school district.
