2013 Decision Making Guide

This Guide was developed in collaboration with the National Congress of American Indians through a grant provided by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.  One of the key purposes of the Grant was to help strengthen the role of tribal governments in Native education.  This Guide is intended to help accomplish that goal by providing Tribes and TEAs with an outline of select K-12 federal programs in which TEAs can potentially participate and thereby provide options for TEAs to enhance their role in Native education.The Guide focuses on select programs under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (“ESEA”) as well as other federal laws.
