Title VI - Indian, Native Hawaiian, and Alaska Native Education
Title VI details the national expectations to provide a quality education for American Indian, Alaska and Hawaiian Native students.
There are federal grant programs to:
- support the efforts of local educational agencies to meet the culturally related educational needs of native students so such students can meet academic standards;
- ensure that students gain knowledge and understanding of Native communities, languages, tribal histories, traditions and cultures, and
- to ensure that school staff who serve native students have the ability to provide culturally appropriate and effective instruction.
