JOM Program

The JOM program provides supplemental funding assisting those efforts designed to meet the specialized and unique educational needs of eligible Native American students.  The Diné (Navajo) language and culture are high priorities for JOM.  Services include providing funding for instructional supplies, student incentives, and parental costs that meet program requirements. SJSD currently has nine Indian Education Committee members that represent schools that have Native American students enrolled and are eligible for the JOM program.
