Reservation School, 1926


In 1926, the school at the Uintah Ouray Agency had a capacity for 125 students. There were 129 children enrolled but average attendance was 118. The reservation school offered course work only through seventh grade.
          The Agency’s 1926 annual report includes school attendance:

301   Total school age children on reservation
239   Total eligible for school
  26   Attended non resident boarding school
129   Attended the reservation school
     4   Attended school on other reservations
   80   Attended public schools

          About this time, a national study of Indian Schools began. The resulting Meriam Report, issued in 1928, was critical of Indian Schools and other government policy on Indians.
