This settlement is for Federal Indian Residential Schools Day Scholars from the Gottfriedson class action. This settlement provides compensation for Day Scholars who attended a Federal Indian Residential School during the day only but did not sleep there overnight. This lawsuit is not for students who attended Indian Day Schools – those students are covered by a separate class action settlement called the McLean Federal Indian Day Schools settlement. 

In some cases, schools may have operated as a Federal Indian Residential School and then later as a Federal Indian Day School. We understand this can be confusing. That’s why it is important to check the dates on the Schedule E list. 

To confirm which settlement, you may be eligible for, check the schools’ lists for both class actions. You can find the lists of Federal Indian Residential Schools included in the Day Scholar Class Action in Schedule E, and you can find the schools list for the Federal Indian Day Schools Settlement at
