50 Years of OIE!
The Office of Indian Education (OIE) celebrated their 50th Anniversary on June 23, 2022! The 1972 Indian Education Act (IEA) was the landmark legislation establishing a comprehensive approach to meeting the unique needs of American Indian and Alaska Native students. The unique aspects of the original authority have been retained through subsequent legislative reauthorizing statutes, with the latest revision occurring with the amendments made by the 2001 No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), which reauthorized the program as Title VII Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The IEA established the Office of Indian Education and the National Advisory Council on Indian Education. The various parts of the Act authorized a formula program and discretionary grant programs for Indian children and adults.
