- In fiscal year 1981 the Chitimacha Day School operated on its lowest budget since the new school opened in 1978. School enrollment has not significantly changed since 1978 (a decline from 37 students to 32), yet each year the budget suffers debilitating reductions. Chitimacha children are thus provided an education at an inadequate and unacceptable level. The school comes under the jurisdiction of two educational agencies, the Louisiana State Department of Education (which supplies a limited amount of financial aid) and the Bureau of Indian Affairs (the BIA provides the majority of the school's funding). Problems of funding and staffing reduction could be alleviated if the BIA would provide a small school adjustment for schools that have 50 students or less. Since the Day School is a major factor in the cultural, social, and educational life of the community, rather than reducing the activities, staff, budget, etc., with appropriate funding its current purpose could be expanded to make it a true community school. The BIA should provide technical assistance for developing proposals to funding sources. The BIA should assist in developing a per pupil hour and grades to be taught in one group standard for teaching staff. (BRR)
