These sessions are designed to provide you with an opportunity to voice your thoughts and engage in dialogue with White House Initiative on American Indian and Alaska Native Education leadership as well as senior officials.  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
