Indian Education; State of Idaho Johnson-O'Malley Program. Annual Report, 1971-1972.
In compliance with Federal regulations, the State of Idaho submitted this 1971-72 annual report to the Bureau of Indian Affairs regarding their educational funds under the Johnson-O'Malley (JOM) program. Support for the education of public school students is provided by the State Foundation Program. JOM funds and the Indian Education Program affect 14 school districts. The major objectives of the Idaho Indian Education Program were to: (1) assist public schools with categorical grants-in-aid; (2) encourage new programs and approaches to learning and teaching; (3) bring about better understanding and communication between the school and community; (4) provide inservice training for teachers and teacher aides; (5) make possible the participation of all Indian students in school activities and programs by providing funds to schools for costs and fees normally paid by parents. JOM funds have helped to provide the expenses of kindergartens, summer programs, workshops for teachers, and many other special programs that State funding alone could not provide. New legislation that took over most of the funding of the lunch program left the JOM lunch funds to be channeled into other special programs. Statistical tables and charts covering such items as enrollment and transportation, attendance, school district tax levies, drop out rate, and JOM financial reports for the State and the school districts comprise the majority of the document.
