Johnson O’Malley (JOM)
The Johnson O’Malley Program serves students who attend school in the Sac and Fox jurisdiction (which includes Ripley). The student can be a member of any federally recognized tribe, but must have their own CDIB. The student must have a completed JOM application on file for each school year, a request for service, and a copy of their CDIB. If a vendor is to be paid, we need a copy of their invoice. The program pays the vendor, not teh individual, except for the school supplies, and we do not reimburse.
These are the services we offer:
