The Indian Education Program is comprised of two programs:

  1. Title VI

  2. Johnson O’Malley

What is Title VI?

Title VI is a federally funded program through the Department of Education operating within the Office of Indian Education in Washington, D.C. Funds go directly to local programs to meet academic, social, and cultural needs, as well as college and career planning. All students of Native American descent are eligible to participate whose tribe is recognized by the federal government. Eligibility does not consider income level. Procedures for enrolling your school-age child as a recipient of the program begin with the completion of a Title VI Student Eligibility Certification Form (506), which may be obtained at the Claremore School Enrollment Center or the link below. This form must be approved by the Claremore School Enrollment Center prior to services. Examples of programs are tutors for reading & math, summer school, and instructional supplies.

506 Form

The Indian Parent Committee (IPC) meets regularly with the program director to design, implement, and evaluate the Title VI program.

What is Johnson O’Malley?

Johnson O’Malley (JOM) is a federally-funded program that provides supplemental education programs for Native American students attending public schools. Schools receive funds based on the number of Native American students attending Claremore Public Schools. Johnson O’Malley is for any student who can prove Indian blood by submitting a copy of the student’s tribal membership and Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood (CDIB) cards to the Claremore Schools Enrollment Center. Once eligibility is determined through the JOM database, students will be eligible to receive services. Funds must be used to supplement the education of Native American students, not supplant them. Services offered may include but are not limited to school supplies, graduation caps & gowns, ACT fees ($30) per student, AP fees ($30) per student, culturally themed events, as well as educational incentives and awards (book fair voucher).

The Indian Education Parent Committee meets regularly with the program director to design, implement, and evaluate the Title VI and Johnson O’Malley programs. Meeting dates are listed on the Indian Education link.

All meetings will be held at the Education Service Center, 101 W. 11th Street, Claremore, OK.  All parents or guardians of eligible JOM students attending Claremore Public Schools are welcome to attend.

You must attend classes at CPS before JOM status can be determined. ***
