Abstract In 2013, the Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary of Education convened an American Indian Education Study Group to diagnose the systemic challenges facing the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) and to propose a comprehensive plan for reform to ensure that all students attending BIEfunded schools receive a world-class education. The Study Group drafted a framework for reform based on several listening sessions last fall with tribal leaders, Indian educators and others throughout Indian Country on how to facilitate tribal sovereignty in American Indian education and how to improve educational outcomes for students at BIE-funded schools. The Study Group incorporated feedback it received from tribal leaders and other BIE stakeholders into the final ‘‘Blueprint for Reform,’’ released on June 13, 2014. Acting on the recommendations in the Blueprint, BIE will award competitive grants to tribes and their tribal education agencies to promote tribal control and operation of BIE-funded schools on their Indian reservations. The purpose of the grants is to support the tribe’s capacity to manage and operate tribally controlled schools as defined in the Tribally Controlled E:\FR\FM\26JAN1.SGM 26JAN1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 16 / Monday, January 26, 2015 / Notices emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Schools Act of 1988 (Pub.

These funds will (a) support development of a school-reform plan to improve educational outcomes for students and (b) improve efficiencies and effectiveness in the operation of BIE-funded schools within a reservation. The grants will provide funds for the tribe to: • Develop an implementation plan that will reform a tribe’s current organizational structure towards an expert and independent tribal education agency that will support schools and students; and • Cover the execution of the implementation plan with identified staffing, projected timelines, proposed budgets, and activities. Each proposal must include a project narrative, a budget narrative, a work plan outline, and a Project Director to manage the execution of the grant.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    In 2013, the Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary of 
Education convened an American Indian Education Study Group to diagnose 
the systemic challenges facing the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) and 
to propose a comprehensive plan for reform to ensure that all students 
attending BIE-funded schools receive a world-class education.
    The Study Group drafted a framework for reform based on several 
listening sessions last fall with tribal leaders, Indian educators and 
others throughout Indian Country on how to facilitate tribal 
sovereignty in American Indian education and how to improve educational 
outcomes for students at BIE-funded schools. The Study Group 
incorporated feedback it received from tribal leaders and other BIE 
stakeholders into the final ``Blueprint for Reform,'' released on June 
13, 2014.
    Acting on the recommendations in the Blueprint, BIE will award 
competitive grants to tribes and their tribal education agencies to 
promote tribal control and operation of BIE-funded schools on their 
Indian reservations. The purpose of the grants is to support the 
tribe's capacity to manage and operate tribally controlled schools as 
defined in the Tribally Controlled

Schools Act of 1988 (Pub. L. 100-297). These funds will (a) support 
development of a school-reform plan to improve educational outcomes for 
students and (b) improve efficiencies and effectiveness in the 
operation of BIE-funded schools within a reservation.
    The grants will provide funds for the tribe to:
     Develop an implementation plan that will reform a tribe's 
current organizational structure towards an expert and independent 
tribal education agency that will support schools and students; and
     Cover the execution of the implementation plan with 
identified staffing, projected timelines, proposed budgets, and 
activities.
    Each proposal must include a project narrative, a budget narrative, 
a work plan outline, and a Project Director to manage the execution of 
the grant. The Project Directors will participate in monthly 
collaboration meetings, submit quarterly budget updates, ensure an 
annual report is submitted at the end of each project year, and 
ultimately ensure that the tribal education agency fulfills the 
obligations of the grant. A response is required to obtain and/or 
retain a benefit.
