Parent Committee

What is the purpose of the parent committee?
 
An essential part of our Indian Education program is our parent involvement.  Our Title VI Program could not function without our Indian Education Parent Advisory Committee (IEAC).  The IEAC gives recommendations to our program based on the needs of their Indian children.  I would like to encourage all of our parents, relatives, guardians, teachers, administrators, etc. to become involved in formulating and molding our Indian Education program to fit the needs of our Indian children in Mustang Public Schools.  We now hold one IEAC meeting per nine weeks.

The purpose of the IEAC shall be to assist the Mustang Public Schools in bringing about the most effective Indian Education Program possible.  To achieve this purpose, the IEAC shall provide advice and assistance to the Mustang Public School District in developing, operating and evaluating the Title VI project.  The establishment of and the work of the parent committee is intended to comply with the rules and regulations of the Title VI Indian Education Act.

 

 Who can be a member of the IEAC?

 
The following are eligible to elect, serve and vote on the IEAC, as stated in the IEAC Bylaws:
1.  Parents and/or guardians of Indian children who are eligible to receive services under the proposed project.
2.  Teachers, including guidance counselors, except members of the project staff and other personnel paid by the project. 
3.  Indian secondary school students enrolled in the Mustang Public Schools.

Johnson O'Malley

Mustang Schools do not fall within any tribal jurisdiction.  For this reason, our district is served by the Cheyenne and Arapaho Johnson O'Malley program. It is a federally funded program that provides supplemental assistance for the unique educational needs of individual students. Funding for the program is provided annually for all eligible Native American students who live within the nine-county service area and attend a public school or one of the Tribes' Head Start Programs. 

Assistance is also available by special request for students to attend UNITY, FFA Conferences, FCCLA conferences, and educational conferences in conjunction with school or classes.  In the summer months, assistance may also be available for Summer Enrichment Camps within Johnson O'Malley communities. This assistance is based on the availability of funds. 

To qualify for JOM assistance, a student must meet the following criteria:
  1. 1/4 or more Indian blood, with proof of enrollment and a copy of CDIB
  2. Must attend public school and reside within the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes service area
  3. Students enrolled with a tribe by descendancy must show proof by CDIB or parent's CDIB
  4. If a child is not enrolled and is 3/4 or more degree of Indian blood, a copy of the child's birth certificate to show relationship with an enrolled parent with such tribes as Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek and Seminole Tribes of Oklahoma who do not have a blood quantum, are eligible for Johnson O'Malley 
Enrolled students are also eligible for Tribal assistance for Educational Support Items and Student Activities
