Here is the June 19 Dear Tribal Leader letter regarding the Draft Rule.  Here is the draft rule itself.

An excerpt from the letter:

The Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) has prepared a draft rule to address leasing and
fundraising at BIE operated schools. This rule currently affects only federally operated
schools, lessees, and school employees. It does not affect tribally operated schools, grant
schools, or any schools not operated by BIE.

The rule implements a mandate from Congress to establish standards for leasing and fundraising at BIE-operated schools (See Pub. L. 112-74, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 20 12). The leasing standards apply to leasing of BIE-operated school land and/or facilities in exchange for funds to be used for school purposes. The fundraising standards apply to BIE-operated school employees who fundraise for a BIE-operated school.
