American Indian Parent Committee

Minnesota Statutes, section 124D.78 requires that all Minnesota school districts with 10 or more American Indian students have an American Indian Parent Advisory Committee. The committee serves in an advisory role to the school district. School boards must ensure that programs are planned, operated, and evaluated in consultation with the committee. The Minnesota Department of Education provides technical assistance to districts and supports parent committees. 

Our committee started with the 2016-17 school year. The purpose of this committee is to assure parent participation in providing programs and services for American Indian students. This committee will also oversee the development and implementation of the educational plan. Membership in the committee is open to all parents/guardians of American Indian Education students. Secondary students are also welcome to serve on the committee. See the committee bylaws here. 

If you are interested in participating in the committee, please contact Brittney Amitrano, American Indian Cultural Liaison.
