American Indian Education
Native American Parents Advisory Committee
The American Indian Education program is funded by a federal grant and two grants from the Minnesota Department of Children, Families and Learning. The program is staffed by an Indian Education Advisor and a Post-Secondary Preparation Specialist to provide comprehensive services to assist and encourage American Indian students to value their heritage, education and a healthy lifestyle, and to stay in school and prepare for a successful future. A Native American Parent Advisory Committee works with the program.
