The Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) will conduct consultations on which source can provide the most applicable and accurate data for a preliminary report on the number of eligible Indian students served, or potentially served, by entities eligible for participation in the Johnson-O'Malley (JOM) Supplemental Indian Education Program. The sources under consideration are: The Bureau of the Census, the National Center for Education Statistics, or the Office of Indian Education of the Department of Education. The preliminary report will reflect an initial determination regarding the eligible Indian student count for the purposes of calculating formula allocations for programs under the JOM Act of 1934, as amended by the JOM Supplemental Indian Education Program Modernization Act (JOM Modernization Act). BIE is also interested in determining the interest of Tribes, State and local educational agencies, and Alaska Native organizations of entering into JOM contracts.
