Tokata Wico Icagi Kin: For the Future Generations. Oglala Sioux Tribe Johnson O'Malley Program.
The purpose of the Johnson O'Malley Act (JOM) is to provide financial assistance to meet the unique and specialized needs of Indian children attending public schools. This booklet briefly describes the history of the act, how it works (funding and requirements), the involvement of the local Indian Education Committee, the Education Plan, eligibility, and the contractual position of the Oglala Sioux Tribe. Services provided for eligible students and parental cost items are addressed. Seven Local Indian Education Boards are listed that administer JOM programs in South Dakota and Nebraska (Rapid City, South Dakota; Bennett County, South Dakota; Chadron, Nebraska; Pine Ridge, South Dakota; Hot Springs, South Dakota; Gordon District, Nebraska; Rushville, Nebraska). Listings vary, but may include board objectives and goals, member names, staff, services provided, and activities and accomplishments. Five other programs are listed with local contact persons and mailing addresses. (SAS)
