Annual Report of Indian Education in Montana. Johnson-O'Malley Activities, Fiscal Year 1978.
Montana State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, Helena.
During fiscal year 1978, the Montana Office of Public Instruction administered Johnson-O'Malley (JOM) Act funds totaling $684,200 for projects affecting 4,501 eligible students on the Crow, Fort Peck, Fort Belknap, and Rocky Boy's Indian Reservations. Funds were awarded on a per capita basis to provide supplemental educational programs for Indian children who were not achieving at the same rate as their counterparts in the school. Programs involved basic skills development as well as increased cultural activities. The Blackfeet, Northern Cheyenne, and Flathead tribes administered their own JOM program funding. The Montana Indian Education Conference was attended by 455 persons and the Inter Tribal Youth Practicum, sponsored by the Crow Tribe, was attended by 90 JOM eligible high school students from Montana and Wyoming. The Seventh Annual All-Indian Speech and Debate Tournament provided Montana's Indian students an opportunity to participate in top level speech and debate competition. School reports of JOM funded projects, the JOM annual financial report, JOM administrative budget, a summary of allocations, a summary enrollment and financial report, and JOM enrollment data comprise the report. Tabular data pertain to JOM allocations and numbers of eligible Indian students for fiscal years 1948-78, and JOM allocations by reservations. (AN)
