Indian Education: Johnson-O'Malley Activities, Annual Report, 1970-1971 [Montana].
Montana State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, Helena.
In fiscal year 1970, Montana Johnson-O'Malley (JOM) funds were relieved of supporting school lunches for American Indian children, and were channeled into special project activities. Department of Agriculture school-lunch funds became available in larger amounts to make that transition possible. With more funds, projects for special activities received an impetus that has grown each year. In January 1970, funds became available for kindergarten programs. In fiscal year 1971, 22 kindergarten units were in operation. The program now includes transportation, boarding homes, home-school coordinators, nurse coordinators, cultural enrichment programs, special teachers and workshops for teacher aides. During 1970-71 JOM advisory committees were formed to involve Indian people. At the same time JOM provided educational services to 37 school districts and 5,418 school children. This annual report also provides statistical data concerning these Federal aid programs in Montana: (1) Public Law 874 payments; (2) Public Law 815 payments; and (3) Public Law 98-10 payments.
