Underuse of Title VII Funding for Indian Education in Arizona, Nevada, and Utah
West Comprehensive Center at WestEd
Title VII provides funding for the education of American Indian/Alaska Native students based on a formula grant available to school districts, charter schools, and local education agencies (LEAs). This report explores why some eligible schools and districts do not apply for federal Title VII, potentially resulting in American Indian/Alaska Native students missing out on programs targeted to their needs. The report, produced by the RMC Research Corporation for the West Comprehensive Center at WestEd, presents results from analyses of recent public data and interviews with LEA representatives. Appended to the report are: (1) Johnson-O'Malley Funding, by State, 2000-2014; (2) Impact Aid Funding, by State, 2008-2013; (3) Local Education Agencies That Participated in Telephone Interviews; and (4) Title VII Needs Assessment Telephone Interview Protocol, July 2014.
