• Purpose

    The Federal Title VI program supports educational and culturally related academic needs of American Indian and Alaska Native students, so that such students can meet the same challenging academic achievement standards as all other students within CMS. The ongoing program will provide opportunities for these students by ensuring that programs that serve these children are of the highest quality and provide for not only the basic elementary and secondary educational needs, but also meet the unique educational and culturally related needs of these students.

    The CMS Title VI Parent Advisory Board meets regularly during the school year to plan special cultural activities, and to review needed programs for our Native American students such as tutoring or assistance with any program within CMS, career counseling, college preparedness, and CMS teacher continuing educational opportunities. Meetings are generally open to all parents of CMS Native American students.


    Enrollment is open to any CMS student who is a member of a federal or state recognized tribe; or a child of any member of a federal or state recognized tribe; or the grandchild of any member of a federal or state recognized tribe. Completion of the “Indian Education Program/Title VI Student Eligibility Form” (EDForm 506) is required to determine a student’s eligibility for Title VI support. You can access this form in the 2023-2024 Student Forms booklet. Completed forms should be sent to Chiquitha Lloyd, Title VI Indian Education Program Director.
