Indian Education Program Update

Title VI and Johnson O'Malley

Program and service information

The EPS Indian Education office will provide continuous updates as determined by EPS guidelines. Our first priority is to ensure the safety of all students, staff, and families. Program activities, events, and services are being determined and may be provided on a limited basis. Please make sure your current information is updated with your school. You may contact the school if you have an address, email, or phone number change. Providing the updated information will insure our records are current as we send program updates to you on the Title VI and the Johnson O'Malley programs.

Cultural Learning Opportunities

Please look for our cultural google form that will be sent out. Student tribal information packets, cultural/art kits and links to cultural videos will be provided for interested students. Information will be explained on how your child may receive these exciting resources for learning and creating. This new approach will be provided in place of activities and events for the current semester.

College and Career Opportunities

High school students will be sent information on college and career opportunities as they become available. Our staff representative, Mrs. Courtney Tsotigh-Yarholar will be contacting you by email. Meetings will be scheduled and may be requested via Zoom on student's virtual learning days. Look for updates from Courtney!
