South Washington County Schools

American Indian Education

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 American Indian 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
