Poehlman, Charles H., Comp.
After a brief discussion of the Johnson-O'Malley Program in Nevada, the State's expenditures for the fiscal year July 1, 1971, to June 30, 1972, are reported. Nevada's Indian Education Program is the result of the Johnson-O'Malley Act (JOM), which provides funds for the administration of the program and for the payment of tuition to school districts which enroll eligible American Indian children. This fiscal year, Nevada's allocation of JOM funds amounted to $194,750. Reports of JOM expenditures and special fund allocations are presented by school district. Also presented by school district are tabulated data on enrollment and attendance. Data from a 5-year survey of Indian dropouts are given according to sex and to the reason for dropping out. Nevada's plan for distribution of JOM contract funds, the procedures for determination of State apportionment for Nevada public schools, and the revised JOM guidelines are also included.
