The Bureau of Indian Education is developing a five-year Strategic Direction which encompasses the actions the BIE is going to take to fulfill its mission and realize its vision. This 2024-2029 Strategic Direction is scheduled for release in June 2024. Your input is especially valuable to determine which priorities are most critical to strategically move the BIE ahead for the next five years. To ensure widespread and inclusive input into the Strategic Direction, from October 2023 to March 2024, the BIE will host a number of listening sessions and Tribal consultations to gather input from Tribal leaders and other Tribal educational partners. The consultation will take place on October 18, 2023 in Albuquerque. To collect your feedback, the link to the online questionnaire is here. The questionnaire will be open for input through December 17, 2023. In addition, please feel free to submit any written comments via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to Dr. Wendy Cooley, 1849 C Street NW, MIB-3610 Washington, DC 20240 by December 17, 2023.
