program to be funded by the Indian
Education office of the Department
of Education, for the planning stage
that is expected to be completed by
August, 31, 1993. If all goes as
planned, curriculum will be in place
by the beginning of the school year
this fall. ;
Partnerships will be built among
students, families, teachers and so
cial service providers in developing
practical curriculum. Families that
have been successful in keeping their
children in school will help other
community families. To help design
a culturally appropriate holistic cur
riculum, 20 Indian families, 10 in the
Portland urban area and 10 in Warm
Springs, will work together over a
year's time. Three options will be
designed to integrate social and other
services through educational settings,
suitable for rural andor urban areas,
in collaboration with the implemen
tations of Oregon's Educational Act
for the 21st Century. Additionally,
criteria will be developed for select
ing Indian families who will partici
pate in the demonstration project and
an evaluation process will be devel
oped. Working with Soto Rank are Ur
ban community liaison Brian
Hoffman, Warm Springs community
liaison Marie Calica and adminis
trative assistant Pauline Badroads.
On the advisory committee are Rosa
Hill, Selene Hall, a representative
from Portland Public School district.
