Here is TEDNA’s 2013-2014 Annual Report. An excerpt:
On September 16, 2014, Joel Williams from the Native American Rights Fund (“NARF”) and Quinton Roman Nose, TEDNA’s Executive Director, hosted a congressional briefing in Washington, D.C. The purpose of the TEDNA Congressional Briefing is generally to enlighten the staff of Senators’ and Representatives’ offices as to what Tribal Education Departments and Agencies are currently doing in their respective areas i.e., existing education programs, student data systems, types of student services, and how they are working with their Local Education Agencies and their State Education Agency. This year the briefing focused on the State Tribal Education Parternership (“STEP”) Program that the Department of Education is implementing. The briefing highlighted best practices and lessons learned from the STEP Program to assist the program moving forward.
