Indian Education; State of Idaho Johnson-O'Malley Program. Annual Report, 1970-1971.
The 1970-71 report to the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) contains information relative to the contract of the State of Idaho with the United States Government for Johnson-O'Malley (JOM) funds to educate American Indians in Idaho. The methods of financing are given, and the State Foundation Program is described. JOM funds and the Indian Education Program affect 14 districts and are set up to: (1) assist public schools with categorical grants-in-aid; (2) encourage new programs and approaches to learning and teaching; (3) bring about understanding and communication between school and community; (4) provide inservice training for teachers and teacher aides; and (5) make possible participation of all American Indian students in school activities and programs by providing funds to schools, taking care of costs and fees normally paid by parents. These JOM funds are bringing more of the American Indian culture and heritage into the school curriculum and texts; upgrading libraries; employing counselors; providing kindergartens; broadening extra-curricular activities (clubs, tours); and providing other services for the American Indian student. The majority of the document is comprised of statistical tables and data that cover such areas as State and JOM enrollment, transportation, attendance, school lunches, Public Law 874, and JOM financial reports for the State and for each school district.
