American Indian Education Parent Advisory Committee

Posted on: Sep 5, 2017

The STMA School District has an established District Advisory Committee (DAC) to ensure members of the public and educators work together in a positive way to improve the quality of education for all children in the community. The American Indian Education Parent Advisory Committee is a sub-committee of the DAC charged with the task of providing parents the necessary information and the opportunity to express their views concerning all aspects of American Indian education and the education needs of the American Indian children enrolled in the district. The committee is composed of parents of children eligible to be enrolled in American Indian education programs and secondary students eligible to be served, along with school district personnel, and representatives from community groups. The committee meets two times per school year, and reports once a year to the DAC informing them of areas of strength and areas of improvement in regards to the district’s programming for American Indian students, and working with the DAC to recommend action in the area of American Indian Education programming improvement.

During the 2017-2018 school year, the American Indian Education Advisory Committee will be meeting in the District Staff Development Room located in Middle School WEST at 7pm on Monday, October 9, 2017 and Monday, January 22, 2018.

If you are a parent of a student who is eligible to be enrolled in American Indian education programs and are interested in serving on this committee, please contact Teri Johnson, Director of Teaching & Learning, for more information.  She can be reached via e-mail at terij@stma.k12.mn.us.
