Twenty-Seventh Annual Report of Indian Education in Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma Indian education program is financed and operated under a contract between the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs, Department of Interior, and the State Department of Education. Supervision of the program is the responsibility of the State Department of Education as authorized by the Johnson O'Malley (JOM) Act of 1936. To qualify for JOM Special Program funds, a school must have an eligible Indian enrollment which reflects a minimum 10 percent of their total enrollment. The amount of JOM funds a local school district receives is based on the number of Indian student enrolled, financial needs of the school, and educational needs of participating Indian students. There were 147 schools participating in JOM Special Programs during the 1973-74 school year. There was a total Indian enrollment of 14,630 with an average attendance of 12,486 (86 percent Indian as compared to 84 percent total attendance) in JOM schools. There were 625 Indian high school graduates and 1,177 Indian eighth grade graduates. Statistical reports (on dropout rates, enrollment, attendance, county allocations, administrative and area office expenditures, and budgets) with an appendix comprise the bulk of this report, though there is a short narrative describing highlights of the year (workshops, seminars, and special areas of concern such as counseling and accountability).
