  • The largest & by far the most popular education program
  • There are 31 JOM Contracts in the Southern Plains Region; Two directly operated by the OK Indian Education Office
  • JOM provides school supplies & much needed tutoring to Indian Students
  • Approximately 32,000 served in 2009
issues
Issues
  • Student count frozen in 1995 @ approximately 25,000
  • There have been several attempts to eliminate JOM altogether
  • Funding has steadily decreased
  • In 1997 students were funded @ approximately $100 per student
  • Today, they are funded @ approximately $66 per student
issues1
Issues
  • Increased student counts & increased costs add to shortfall
  • At current funding levels, programs have to be very selective in what they purchase
  • Administrative costs incurred by contractors decreases amounts available for students
fy 2012 recommendations
FY 2012 Recommendations
  • Reopen the student count to accurately reflect actual student population
  • Increase per student funding amount to $125
scholarships
Scholarships
  • Probably the most underfunded and most critical of the education programs
  • Tribal Scholarships provide tribal members the opportunity to further education beyond High School level
  • Job Markets today are extremely competitive & often require more than a bachelor’s degree at the entry level
scholarships1
Scholarships
  • Many tribes have no resources to support students beyond the under graduate level
  • Even with federal assistance, students still have a huge unmet need
  • Rising tuition costs + More students applying for Scholarships = Less $$ available per student
  • Students forced to take out student loans
  • Tribes cannot keep up with demand at present funding levels
