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:

  • School supplies checks in the amount of $30.00 per child per school year

  • Fees and books for seniors enrolled in concurrent classes (up to 6 hours)

  • Education Plans:  Art Material, Athletic Insurance, Club Uniform, Home Econ Fee/Material, Gym Uniform, Draft Fee/Material, Club Activity Fee, Science Fair Project, Academic Workshop, Shop Fee/Material, Vo-Tech Expense, Letterman Jacket, Workbook Fees, Summer School, Academic Summer Camp, and Senior Incentive See Mrs. Calavan for Full Listing and Description of JOM Education Plan
