ABOUT INDIAN EDUCATION


It is the goal of the Ada City School District Department of Indian Education to develop and implement programs that will ensure that all Native American students have the opportunity to achieve academic success.  The office ensures that all students have equal access to all programs, services, and activities and that they receive the support necessary to succeed at school.

Parents play an important role in providing input to programming and they are asked to serve on committees and to volunteer for program activities.  The Johnson O'Malley and Title VI Parent Committees meet quarterly for the purpose of addressing comments and concerns of parents of Indian children.  Meeting agendas are posted on the district website and all meetings are open to the public. 

The Department has strong working partnerships with tribal entities to help to ensure that students are aware of available services and special programs and to make certain that students receive necessary support through J.O.M., Title VI, and tribal partnerships.  Ultimately, it is the goal of the Ada City School District Department of Indian Education to provide programs of remediation, acceleration, and cultural awareness that ensure that all Native American students have the skills necessary to be engaged, high-performing citizens in a global society.

The Department welcomes input from all stakeholders.
