Title VI - Native American

 

 Mission Statement                                       

The Orange Unified School District’s Title VI Program was formed in 1970 under the American Indian Act with the mission to assist the district in meeting the unique culturally related academic need (CRAN) of the Native American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN)  student population.

Purpose of the Title VI Program

Our Program’s highest priority is helping Native students meet the rigorous state academic content standards through tutoring and special assistance such as:

  • Cultural and educational opportunities to students and their families
  • Provide Culturally relevant events such as our November Heritage Gathering 
  • Provide students with college and career preparation workshops
  • Provide students and their families with community service information
  • Provide genealogy assistance

Academic Support Services:

The PAC is an advisory committee that supports the academic success and cultural  awareness of Native American students in OUSD.  The PAC advises on budgetary items that includes, but not limited, to after-school tutoring, cultural education events, Summer School Program through Santiago Canyon College, and assistance in tracing tribal ancestry. The PAC consists of all parents and families of program enrolled students. Participation in PAC meetings is encouraged for ultimate program success.
