What is the Native American Education Program?
The Native American Education Program provides special educational services to American Indian and Alaska Native children. These services include school based tutoring assistance, presentation of Native American cultural classes during regular day and after school, and outreach to parents of students who have not met grade level requirements or who are at risk.
American Indian and Alaskan Native students, K-12, may participate in this program. Families and students become eligible for services through completing and submitting an eligibility form for each child. Please call the American Indian Program Educator at (916) 686-7712 for this eligibility form or for more information.

When Are Program Services Held?
Tutoring services are available throughout the school year. It is preferable for the services to be scheduled at the school site for ongoing contact between the tutor and the student’s teacher. Culture classes are scheduled throughout the year, including a special summer program. Contact the Native American Program Educator for the schedule.
Why Do Students Participate?
Students participate in the Native American Education program for a variety of reasons: for assistance with school work, particularly reading and math; for culturally related enrichment; for support and encouragement in the achievement of challenging standards; for assistance in working toward entering institutions of higher education.
