Title VI, Part A: Educational Program for Students of American Indian or Alaska Native Heritage
The Every Student Succeeds Act (page 246) amends the Indian education programs as Title VI, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed on December 10, 2015. The new law builds on key areas of progress in recent years, made possible by the efforts of educators, communities, parents, and students across the country.
In accordance with ESSA, the mission of the USD383 Title VI Program is to support the efforts of parents, teachers, and administration in meeting the unique cultural, language, and educational needs of American Indian and Alaska Native students.
Funding for the Title VI Indian Education Formula Grant is provided by the U.S. Department of Education. Allocations are based on a yearly count of certified students with a direct American Indian or Alaska Native heritage.
The goals of the USD383 program are:
1. Increase knowledge of cultural identity and awareness through culturally-responsive activities and programs.
2. Provide American Indian and Alaska Native students with opportunities to increase academic achievement and ensure that all students meet the challenging State academic standards.
3. Provide more opportunities for parents to become involved in their children’s education.
4. Increase graduation rates of American Indian and Alaska Native students.
5. Increase post-secondary education opportunities for American Indian and Alaska Native students.
