Home/Native American Education Title VII Program

Overview

The purpose of the Native American Education Title VII Program is to meet the unique educational and cultural needs of Native American and Alaskan Native students.  The program provides academic support and cultural education to district students of documented Native American/Alaskan Indian ancestry within the Evergreen, Vancouver and Battle Ground school districts.

Native American Education Title VII Program, managed by Evergreen School District, serves as a bridge between families and the district by providing a rich array of programs and services for Native American/Alaskan Indian students. An annual spring powwow celebrates diverse indigenous cultures and promotes Native culture awareness for students in Evergreen, Vancouver and Battle Ground public schools. The program also has opportunities for parents to engage and participate in the Native American Parent Association Committee that meets monthly at Burnt Bridge Creek Elementary, 14619-A NE 49th St., Vancouver, WA 98682 in portable #219 behind the school.

The Native American Education programs across the United States are in compliance with governmental treaties. The purpose is to address the educational and cultural needs of K-12 Native American and Alaska Native students as they strive to meet the challenging state performance standards.
