Event Date 1: June 15, 2010
Charles P. Rose, U.S. Department of Education's general counsel, and Kevin Jennings, assistant deputy secretary of the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools, will consult with tribal officials on Thursday, July 15, to gather feedback on education matters affecting American Indian and Alaska Native students.
The daylong consultation, to be held at the Chief Leschi School in Puyallup, Washington, is an outgrowth of President Obama's Nov. 5, 2009 Presidential Memorandum and Executive Order, which directs agencies to develop a plan of action for providing regular and meaningful consultation and strengthening of government-to-government relationships with Indian tribes.
