Title VI is a federally funded program that provides funds annually for Native American and Alaskan Native students.
These funds help support schools and communities as they provide opportunities for Native Students to meet and exceed academic and cultural standards.
The goal of the district’s Title VI program is to address the special educational and cultural needs of Indian students
The parent advisory group (Indian Education Committee) helps to guide the program
and provide cultural support. Click here for more information on the Roles and Responsibilities of the Indian Education Committee
