Title VI Indian Consortim 2024_001.pdf
Summary: On an annual basis, the Title IV Indian Education Consortium Agreement must be update. Martinez Unified School District (MUSD) is the fiscal agent of the Consortium Agreement. The American Indian Culture and Education Program provides tutoring support from trained para-educators in math and language arts for our Native American students in grades K-8th. The Title VI program also offers Native American cultural activities for the students and parents in the program, which includes the Winter Gathering, The Ways if Our Ancestors summer camp and cultural presentations and projects. There are currently 32 Mt. Diablo students eligible to participate in the program. Email addresses of qualifying students are provided to MUSD annually through completed 506 forms. As part of the grant requirements, a parent committee meets monthly to review the programs and help organize activities as requested. Meeting agendas, dates and events are posted on Martinez Adult Education website under Departments/American Indian Culture & Education Program. The agreement deadline was March 5th and missed the deadline for the prior board meeting, therefore, ratification is being sought.
