"Bureau of Indian Education Schools: Improving Interior's Assistance Would Help Some Tribal Groups Implement Academic Accountability Systems"
Although the nation’s 174 Bureau of Indian Education schools can develop alternative targets for measuring adequate yearly progress under the No Child Left Behind Act, just three tribal groups—the Navajo Nation, the Oceti Sakowin Education Consortium, and the Miccosukee Tribe—are developing such alternatives, says a report from the U.S. Government Accountability Office.
Most Bureau of Indian Education schools have officially adopted the definition of AYP of the states in which the schools are located, the report says.
