Resources and information for parents of Indian children
The district is committed to ensuring that school age Indian children have equal access to all programs, services and activities offered within the school district.  To accomplish this, the district will consult with tribal officials and parents of Indian children in the planning and development of the Indian Policies and Procedures, Title VI funded programming, and other educational programming and activities. The district will report on the services provided to Indian children and review and revise these policies annually, no later than December of each year.
 
Parents and families of Indian children are encouraged to provide input to the district and schools regarding the needs of their children and how the district could better meet those needs.  There are many opportunities for parents and tribal officials to provide input including:
  • Attend monthly board meetings (second Tuesday of every month from 7:00-9:00)
  • Attend annual Indian Policies and Procedures (IPP) meetings - October of each year
  • Attend annual Parent Accountability Committee meeting (PAC) for parents of Indian children - spring of each year
  • Provide input by responding to the district annual survey for parents of Indian children  - spring 
  • Contact the office of the Assistant Superintendent
If you have any questions or would like to provide additional input please contact Dan Porter at the office of the Assistant Superintendent at dporter@cortez.k12.co.us or (970) 565-7522.
