The Department of Education is hosting its second Tribal Consultation this year.  The Consultation will take place at the Smith River Rancheria in Smith River, California.

Issues will include:

  • The American Indian Vocational Rehabilitation Services (AIVRS) have published a request for information (RFI) for input on a proposed definition of the Department’s interpretation of “reservation” that would align it with the Government Accounting Office (GAO) interpretation.
  • Title VII Formula seek grantees through the Electronic Application System for Indian Education (EASIE). During the 2012-2013 grant cycles, some initial enhancements were made to the program, and additional work is planned for the 2013-2014 grant year. This will also include a revamp of the ED 506 form for eligibility to be more user friendly; we are asking for recommendation on the draft form of this document. 
  • General Updates in Indian Education
