Native American Family Involvement Day

What does Indian Education Do?
Indian Education provides many services for MPS Native students and families. A few examples include:

  • Support for Instruction
    We work with teachers and schools to help them become more familiar with the best ways for Native students to learn. We do this through professional development opportunities for teachers, but also through one-to-one relationships. We also develop culturally relevant and engaging curriculum and materials for use in schools.
     
  • Support for Family Involvement
    We provide resources and support for opportunities throughout the year, like Connecting Parents to Educational Opportunities, parent trainings and parent circles.
     
  • College Readiness
    Our counselor works with Native students on college planning steps and facilitate college visits.
     
  • Advocacy for Families
    If a Native student is experiencing a problem at their school, Indian Education will work to help resolve the issue.
