Indian, Native Hawaiian, and Alaska Native Education - Title VII
Title VII dollars support the improved academic performance of the 11,900 American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) students in Oregon by providing strategies which directly address the culturally related and academic need of AI/AN students. Federal dollars go directly to LEAs which submit
describing the intended use of the funds. In addition to Title VII, Oregon's State Board of Education has adopted the
Oregon American Indian/Alaska Native Education State Plan
. This plan highlights strategies for addressing the eleven goals which encompass staff development, curriculum, infusion, dropout prevention, culturally appropriate assessment, early childhood, and parental involvement.
Title VII programs are designed to address the unique education and culturally related academic needs of American Indian and Alaska Native students so that these students can achieve to the same challenging state performance standards expected of all students. The Department of Education is updating contacts for Title VII programs.
