Hillsboro - Title 6
Native American/Alaska Native Education Program
Welcome to 2022!This month has had a turbulent start for some families. I know some of us are still processing 2021. We have a variety of school building staff who are willing to help if a need should arise. I get emails and phone calls from staff looking for ways to support our students and families. Please look to the district webpage for the most current COVID updates as well as check your emails for letters from school staff. If you are not receiving these important emails check to make sure we have your correct email address and phone numbers.
Please mark your calendars for our virtual Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) meeting. This is your space to meet families across the district and hear about a resource in our district or community.
Do you need access to academic tutoring? College & Career resources, classroom curriculum, please reach out to our Title 6 team. We are happy to help!

This film is 41-minutes and kid-friendly.
This is a film about the struggle for balance between two worlds. Skiing in Ute Territory has always raised questions for Connor about being in reciprocity with the land and its people. As a skier who connects with the land through sport, he empathizes with the injustices that have displaced the Utes and ongoing colonization, erasure and extraction impacting the Ute people. This story connects conflicted pasts to an awakening in cultural awareness that can create an equitable future for Indigenous people and skiers.
