The Indian Education Office of Grove Public Schools consists of two federally funded programs, the Title VII Indian Education Program and the Johnson-O’Malley Program. Each program is required to establish a Parent Advisory Committee. Regular meetings for each program are held on the first Tuesday in September and April, in the middle school library. Special meetings are called as needed throughout the school year. All parents of Native American children are invited to participate.
The Indian Education Office offers a variety of cultural, historical, and career activities for students throughout the school district. Additional activities are also sponsored by local and state tribes and organizations. Two of the most popular competitions are the Cherokee Nation Language and Challenge Bowls. Other activities include Creative Writing, Art, leadership, and academic recognition.
The attached links are an overview of services offered to students for the 2010-2011 school year. My office is available to help students and parents obtain tribal information and services. I also offer college and career information and counseling services to Native American students.
My main office is located next to the middle school office, but I have a desk in the high school social studies office where high school students may find me every day from 11:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. For further information, my phone number is 786-3003/787-5065 or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
