During the 2013-2014 school year, the district distributed 929 surveys to identify priority needs for meeting the needs of Native American students in Gallup McKinley County Schools. The IEC developed the survey and assisted in distributing and collecting the surveys at schools, community centers and Chapter Houses. 531 surveys were collected, which represents a "sample" of the total population or total number of surveys distributed. 97% of the surveys results show that supplies and materials rated at the first priority, 62% of the surveys rated classroom libraries as the second highest priority, and 60% of the surveys rated student cultural activities as the third highest priority.
Order of surveys collected:
1. Supplies and Materials
2. Classroom Libraries (reading books for the classrooms)
3. Student Cultural Activities
4. Navajo Language Class
7. High School Cap/Gown
8. Credit Recovery
JOM/IEC compiles and implement components based on the needs assessment; therefore, please participate by submitting your needs assessment when it becomes available at your child(s) school.
