The Native American Education Program, designed to provide after-school instruction and supportive services, served approximately 350 Native American students attending New York City public schools in 1980-1981. Program goals submitted for the year were: to increase academic achievement capabilities of Native American students; to continue to provide a center for the correction and cataloging of Indian resources; to enhance the effectiveness of the program by making the target population aware of information related to educational opportunities; and to improve the skills of the staff and Parents' Committee members by means of training programs. Objectives met included: over $1,000 was spent on books and learning kits pertaining to Native Americans for the Library/Resource Center, with the present collection containing approximately 900 volumes about Native Americans; 3-week mini-courses in Native American history and culture classes in traditional crafts and dances were conducted, presentations were given to classes at various schools throughout the city, and individualized assistance with research projects on Native American subjects were provided; 80 home visits and 93 school visits by school/neighborhood workers were made to establish contact with students at their schools, acquainting students, teachers, and parents with the program. Appendices include forms used to administer the program. (ERB)
