What is the Purpose of JOM?

To provide supplementary financial assistance to meet the unique and specialized educational needs of Indian children. Johnson-O'Malley funds are not to take the place of federal, state or local funds.

How does the program work?

To receive Johnson O' Malley funding, the Holbrook Unified School District contracts with the Navajo Nation Division of Dine' Education. There are broad and general regulations that outline the requirements for the contract, allowing the programs to be developed to meet local needs and differences. There are two main requirements under the Johnson O' Malley Act to assure Parent Participation and control. The requirements are the Indian Education Committee and the Education Plan.
