Is your child eligible for Title VII services?
Are you, your child, or your child's grandparent an enrolled member of an Alaska Native group or American Indian tribe? If so, your child may be able to enroll in the Title VII Indian Education program.
Enrollment will increase the opportunities available to your student. Title VII's goal is to help Native students meet and exceed state academic and cultural standards.
Upon enrollment, your child will be eligible to participate in various K-12 programs, including:
