Title VII grant from the Federal Government is for use in improving the academic standing of the American Indian students. Funding is determined by the number of American Indians in the school district and funds may be used in any number of ways—but we must show results. For the past several years, BVSD’s equity department has used the funds to coordinate a one-on-one tutoring program, which we currently run, but we wish to implement more cultural activities next year and need your input. We are very open to suggestions for the upcoming school year, and encourage anyone with ideas to come and voice them at this meeting.
For more information, please call the BVSD Federal Programs and Student Success Office / American Indian Liaison at 720-620-0777.
The purpose of this website is to provide the American Indian community within the Boulder Valley School District with information on district events, programs, and other information. If you would like to add anything to the site, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
