Native American Education


Native American Education

We begin this page by saying Miigwech Pidamayaye. Thank you to all our parents, grandparents, guardians and staff who are working hard for all our Native youth. A wise teaching that we should try to remember as parents, care givers, and educators is we should be good to ourselves and each other, so we can care and share our good energy with our children.

The American Indian Education Program at South Washington County Schools was created with the support of the Department of Educational Achievement and Integration, as well as district administration in the 2016-2017 school year.

The goal of the program is to successfully assist our Native American students and their families navigate the school system so our students can reach their full potential to earn a high school diploma and become career and/or college-ready.

Currently, we are able to provide the following services:

  • Connect students to culturally relevant academic resources

  • Provide academic support

  • Attend parent-teacher meetings

  • Support American Indian families

  • Provide resources to teachers
