Native American/Alaska Native Education Program
Helping All Students Succeed
Kent School District participates in a Native American/Alaska Native Education Program funded by Federal Title VI Grant monies based on Native American student counts and administered through Student Services. The program is designed to assist Native American students to meet district and state academic standards.
Kent School District offers resources for native students and families to create a strong sense of community. By building a stronger circle we strengthen our society. In traditional communities, young people have always come to know, to experience, and to lay claim to their tribal heritage, allowing individuals to define themselves in terms of their collective cultural identity. Our goal is for each native student to graduate high school and continue their education in post-secondary opportunities.
Culture Night & Parent Meeting
Join us on Friday, May 3, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Kent Phoenix Academy (11000 SE 264th Street, Kent).
This will also be our yearly public hearing regarding the Title VI grant that funds the program. The parent committee will have the opportunity to sign off on the grant.
Pizza will be provided. You may also bring a dish of your choice or drinks. Native program shirts will also be available for students who attend.
