Looking 11 a dance r Johnson coma Ley funds change could trim Aid Alaska native and american Indian students in Fairbanks could lose More than $175,000 for supplemental education programs if a new method of distributing Federal funds is adopted state officials say. A we Are talking about losing tutors Counselor after school classes summer Camps and other support services for native and Indian students in Fairbanks a a said Sandra Juneby administrator of the boroughs Johnson Omalley program. The Bureau of Indian affairs Doles out nearly $20 million through the Johnson of Malley program for the nations native and Indian students each year. Under the current funding formula native and Indian organizations in Alaska get twice As much funding per Pupil As programs in other states said Joan Fisher Johnson of Malley education specialist in Anchorage. The skewed distribution of funds is based on the High costs of education in Alaska Fisher said. Tribal governing bodies outside of Alaska brought a lawsuit against the Bureau of Indian affairs complaining about the unequal distribution of funds two years ago Fisher said. As a result Federal officials Are asking 309 tribal governing bodies outside Alaska and 197 Village governments in Alaska if they want to change the funding formula. Tribal government officials were asked to cast their votes by May 31. The current method of distributing Federal funds allocates More Money for higher education costs in Remote areas like Alaska. An alternate method would Divide the total amount of dollars in the Johnson of Malley program equally among All recipients. The latter a equal distribution program would Cut More than half of the funding now Given to tribal organizations in Alaska Fisher said. This year alaskans native organizations received More than $5 million or $253 for each of 21,650 students in Alaska who qualified for the Johnson of Malley program. Most native and Indian organizations in other states received about $110 per qualifying child Fisher said. The Fairbanks native association got $400,000 through the Federal Johnson of Malley program to coordinate educational activities for 1,742 alaskan native or american native students in Borough schools this year. If the new funding distribution plan is adopted the Borough school District would probably lose eight of the 15 staff members paid through the Johnson of Malley program Juneby said. 50 years ago May to 1936�?mrs h e.
