SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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:
