Eastern Oklahoma Johnson-O'Malley Indian Education Handbook.
Intended as a guide and reference for persons involved in local administration of the Johnson-O'Malley (JOM) Indian Education program, the handbook contains basic information about the program and the roles and responsibilities of school administrators, JOM personnel, and local and state Indian Education Committees (IECs). Beginning with a history of JOM in Oklahoma, the handbook lists the Eastern Oklahoma schools in the JOM program; the Indian Education Area Coordinators, their responsibilities, and the schools they serve; and the central office staff. It includes a JOM timetable for IECs and school administrators, and information on eligibility and the application process. The handbook also explains the responsibilities of the local and state IECs, lists the state committee for Eastern Oklahoma with the schools served, and provides rules for electing local IEC members. It explains Educational Support Funds and gives guidelines for their use. Finally, the handbook lists the responsibilities of administrators of schools participating in the JOM program and gives guidelines for selecting personnel employed with the assistance of JOM funds. The appendix explains and gives samples of JOM forms, explains how to establish local IEC by-laws and conduct meetings, and discusses needs assessments. (SB)
