The BIE is currently in its third year of implementing its strategic planning document, BIE Strategic Direction (“Direction”) for 2018-2023. BIE developed the Direction with input from Tribal leaders and stakeholders such as school boards, educators, and families of Native students. Given the unforeseen events of the past year and a half, BIE is revisiting the Direction to conduct a mid-cycle check and make any appropriate adjustments to the milestones for years 4 and 5 of the Direction.

To obtain Tribes' and public stakeholders' input on years 4 and 5 of the Direction, we have designated a separate session to focus on each of the Direction's six mission areas and goals, as follows:
