Indian Education (Title VI) / JOM

The Indian Education Committee works to develop educational programs designed to meet the specialized and unique educational needs of Indian children, and approves all programs and budgets funded by the Johnson-O'Malley Program (JOM).

The committee consists of elected parents and guardians of Indian students who are enrolled in schools that are receiving funding under the JOM program.

Johnson O’Malley (JOM) is a federally-funded program which provides supplemental education programs for Native American students attending public schools. Schools receive funds based on the number of Native American students attending each school. Funds must be used to supplement the education of the Native American students. Examples of programs are: tutoring, school supplies, incentives, and field trips.
