Control of Indian Education in BIA Schools. Presidential/Secretarial Objectives for Secretarial Operational Planning System.
Bureau of Indian Affairs (Dept. of Interior), Washington, DC.
In spring 1974, the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) embarked on a specific project related to Indian control of schools. The objective was to have, by the end of FY 75, at least 1/4 (50) of the bureau schools operating under a management system chosen by those served by the schools. Relevant to this, the Interior Department implemented the Secretarial Operational Planning System (OPS) to achieve accountability through management objectives. The point of departure for such a system is to develop guidance and goals for employees to achieve. The objective given here is one that has been provided to the department and accepted as a Secretarial Objective for BIA education activity for FY 75. In time, it is possible that Secretarial Objectives will be adopted as Presidential Objectives. The OPS statement covers the approach to be used; a process approach which will provide reliable information to Indian decision makers; descriptions and explanations of the eight project tasks; project responsibilities; the program thrust; the selection of schools by BIA area offices; the reporting process and forms for the Area Operational Plan; and explanations and copies of the Area/Agency Monthly Report and Tribal Decision Report forms.
