Indian Education; State of Idaho Johnson-O'Malley Program. Annual Report, 1973-1974.
Idaho State Dept. of Education, Boise.
The 1973-74 Idaho State annual report to the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) was submitted in compliance with Federal regulations governing Johnson-O'Malley (JOM) funds. Program accomplishments discussed fell into four categories: (1) creation of a State Advisory Council for Indian Education; (2) early completion of contract negotiations; (3) employment of a professional educator to assist with the administration of the program in the northern part of the State; and (4) improved reporting procedures for expenditures from JOM funds. Major objectives for the 14 districts under JOM funding were not revised or evaluated formally, but they appeared to be successful (according to the district reports). Special educational activities funded under JOM were directed toward providing every Indian child with the opportunity to develop his potential. The report consisted of four sections: (A) the narrative, which reported the accomplishments, difficulties encountered, and plans for next year's operation; (B) school enrollment data for all participating districts; (C) financial information which included State and local districts expenditures; and (D) miscellaneous information concerning the programs in the individual school districts which were supported by the JOM program. The information in Section D is brief and was taken from the reports submitted by the local districts or represents the items considered most pertinent by personnel of the State Department of Education.
