Johnson O’Malley Program is designed to provide supplemental and or operational support to public schools who serve Indian students from age three through twelfth grades. Who are ¼ or more degree Indian blood and recognized by the Secretary as being eligible for Bureau services.  The desired outcomes of the Cherokee Nation Co-Partner (JOM) Program are to increase Indian student achievement levels and encourage the use of cultural enrichment initiatives within the JOM programs in the public schools.
