ABOUT THE KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

Mr. Robert Crumley is the Superintendent of the Chugach School District in Alaska. In 2002, the District won the prestigious Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. In 1994 the District decided to throw out its entire curriculum and began anew. It had only sent one student on to college in the previous 20 years. It designed a completely new curriculum with input from parents, Board members, local businesses, students, faculty, and staff. Test scores went through the roof. The student body is most Native, living in rural villages in the southeastern part of the state. President Bush presented the Baldrige Award to the District in a ceremony at the White House. Mr. Crumley has been involved in the school improvement project since its inception.

Mr. Stacy Phelps (Lakota) is Director of the GEAR UP program for the State of South Dakota. He has been involved in school improvement programs for over two decades, with outstanding results. He has helped hundreds of Native students prepare for college and get admitted. He has won awards at the local, state, and national level.

 

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT THE EXEMPLARY INSTITUTE
 
 MS. GLORIA HALE
, Director of Federal Projects, Grants-Cibola County Schools, NM: “The Exemplary Institute has done more for Indian education than anything else in history.”
MS. MARTINA ASHLEY, Assistant Director, Fort McDowell Education Department, AZ former Principal, Sanders Elementary School: “I have used the materials I got from the Exemplary Institute every day since I got home. I took the materials and tabbed them so I could find things easily, and I keep the Proceedings book on my desk so it is easy to access. The EI was the best conference I have ever attended.”

MS. BETTY OJAYE, Director, Navajo Preparatory School, NM: “Have you read the book ‘Exemplary Programs in Indian Education’? If you haven’t, you need to read it from cover to cover. We used it as a guide to develop our college preparation program, and we have sent between 63% and 100% of our graduates on to college for a dozen years.”,
