Bureau of Indian Affairs (Dept. of Interior), Washington, DC.
Responses derived from 152 of 219 schools and dormitories operated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) are presented in this assessment of the Native American Indian Women's Association recommendations considered by the Assistant Area Directors for Education to be immediately implementable. Each report is presented in terms of a code designating: the recommendation; the school(s)/dorm(s) in alphabetical order; the percentages of implementation achieved by the school(s)/dorm(s); and "status numbers", numbers corresponding to one explanatory remark made by the assessment responder for each school or dorm. A summary tabulation sheet is also presented and indicates that of the 152 schools/dorms responding (a 69% response): 20.1% had 100% implementation; 38.7% had no implementation; non-implementation reasons included lack of harmony with present successful programs, boarding school intent vs day school reality, requirement of additional funds, etc.; full implementation was most often achieved for the recommendation that textbooks be provided in each BIA school system; 50% had 100% implementation for recommendations re: nutritional evaluation and parental contact upon the absence of students; the least implemented recommendations were those re: group homes for teenagers, use of social workers in the schools, social service workshops, special schools for special students, and additional Indian counseling staff.
