Native American Indian Education
The Native American Indian Education Program was created by the U.S. Department of Education to meet the unique and culturally related academic needs of the American Indian and Alaskan Native students. The program provides cultural enrichment and educational support to all Native American, Native Hawaiian, and Alaskan Native students. Huntsville City Schools Native American Indian Education Program is made available to schools primarily through a Title VI, Part A grant by the Indian Education office of the U. S. Department of Education.
How Do I Get Involved?
For students to participate in the Native American Indian Education program under the Federal Government Title VI, Part A Eligibility, the student's parent/guardian must complete the Student Eligibility Form: 506- Form. Completing this form enables your student to be counted for funding under this program.
NAIE Parent Committee
Every Title VI. Part A program must have a parent advisory committee. The input of all parents of children enrolled in Huntsville City Schools NAIE program is encouraged. The parent committee is an invaluable resource of information by either direct knowledge or connections with other Native American members and/or educators in the Huntsville metropolitan area. The unique knowledge of parents about their own traditions and culture can be used in planning activities for students. If you are interested in joining the parent committee, please email the program coordinator.
Native American Indian Education 506 Form
Parents of Native American Indian students are required to fill out the Indian Student Certification Form 506 in accordance with the Indian Education Act.
