Introduction

The Indian Education Program, funded by Title VI and Johnson O’Malley (JOM), intends to meet the specific academic and cultural needs of American Indian students in the Aberdeen School District.

The Indian Education Program is coordinated through the American Indian Parent Advisory Committee (AIPAC), composed of parents and guardians of American Indian students, a district representative and American Indian high school students. They advise the Indian Education Coordinator and Aberdeen School District in the direction and implementation of the Indian Education Program. Meetings are held once a month at a designated location and time. The public is encouraged to attend.

The Indian Education Program supplements already existing programs of the Aberdeen Public School District.
