    You, your child(ren) or grandparents are enrolled as a 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. 


    For Eligibility Purposes, an Indian is defined as any individual who is:

    • A member of an Indian tribe or band, including those terminated since 1940, and those recognized by the state in which the tribe or band resides
    • A descendant in the first or second degree (parent or grandparent) 
    • Considered by the Secretary of the Interior to be an Indian for any purpose
    • A member of an organized Indian group that received a grant under the Indian Education Act of 1988 as it was in effect October 19, 1994


    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.
