American Indian Parent Advisory Committee

American Indian Parent Advisory Committee

Parent Involvement is key to the success of Native students. As a part of the Indian Education Act of 1972, the American Indian Parent Advisory Committee is a collective of elected members comprised of parents, teachers and students who meet regularly throughout the school year. The Parent Committee works with the American Indian Education Director and Family Engagement Coordinator to serve an advisory role for the American Indian Education program.
