Twenty Sixth Annual Report of Indian Education in Oklahoma.
The 26th annual report (1973) of American Indian education programs in Oklahoma is presented. The Oklahoma education program is financed and operated under a contract between the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs, Department of Interior, and the State Department of Education. The supervision of the program is carried out entirely by the State Department of Education as authorized by the Johnson O'Malley (JOM) Act of 1936. To qualify for JOM Special Program funds, a school must have on file in the Office of Indian Education an eligible Indian enrollment of a minimum of 10% of their total. The amount of JOM funds a local school district receives is based on the number of Indian students enrolled, financial needs of the school, and educational need of the participating Indian students. There were 130 schools participating in JOM Special Programs during the 1972-73 school year. There was a total Indian enrollment of 12,972, with an average daily attendance of 11,314; and an 88% attendance rate. Other discussions are (1) statistical reports--e.g., dropouts, financial statements, expenditures by Area Offices; and (2) 8 appendices--e.g., Indian pupil school contract. (FF)
