Indian Education

Title VI — Indian, Native Hawaiian, and Alaska Native Education addresses the unique educational and culturally related academic needs, of American Indian students through formula grants to eligible Local Education Agencies and tribes from the U.S. Department of Education. The act also provides competitive grant opportunities for “Special Programs and Projects to Improve Educational Opportunities for Indian Children.” It authorizes expenditures to serve American Indians including: fellowships, gifted and talented education, and tribal educational planning grants.

We honor and embrace our Native American students and families at Phoenix #1, and strive to meet the unique needs of our Native American students and families to ensure their educational opportunities are second to none.

Johnson-O’Malley Summer School 2018
33 students in grades K-7th participated in a 3 week summer program at Capitol School. Academics, art, cultural activities, visits from the AZ Science Center on Wheels, and field trips were all part of the fun.
These photos are from our trip to Montezuma Castle in the Verde Valley. We hiked as close as allowed to the dwelling and heard from a volunteer Ranger about life in the dwelling, pets they kept, foods they ate and why the Sinagua People may have eventually left the area after 400 years there. A picnic lunch in the shade rounded out our visit. Seeing this dwelling up close was a real highlight for the students and teachers!
This program was fully funded by Johnson-O’Malley grant funds. Use of these funds for Summer School was approved by the Phoenix #1 Indian Education Parent Advisory Committee.
