Are you, your child, or your child's grandparent an enrolled member of an Alaska Native group or American Indian tribe? If so, your child may be able to enroll in the Title VI Indian Education program.
Enrollment will increase the opportunities available to your student. Title VI's goal is to help Native students meet and exceed state academic and cultural standards.
Upon enrollment, your child will be eligible to participate in various K-12 programs, including:
- Class size reduction for high school core classes
- Before/After school programs at select schools based on need
- Educational advocacy
- Scholarship workshops and post-secondary exploration
- Cultural events and other opportunities
- Individualized tutoring based on the child’s needs
- Summer enrichment programs
Enrollment in the program does not obligate the student to participate.
