Indian Education

The Churchill County School District Indian Education Program is intended to meet the unique academic and cultural needs of American Indian and Alaska Native students enrolled in all CCSD schools.

Using funding from the Title VII federal grant, the CCSD Indian Education Program will provide the following programs and services during the school year:

  • Academic advisement for any American Indian student(s) and his/her families
  • Advocacy for any Gifted And Talented or Special Education American Indian student(s) and his/her families
  • After-school tutoring and/or small learning community clubs
  • A partnership with the Fallon Paiute Shoshone Education Department
  • Vision Quest classes for 7th & 8th grade American Indian students to celebrate academic excellence and honor Native American Culture
  • High School Culture Club facilitation
  • Provide guest lectures and special presenters on American Indian history, current events, or culture

In order for students to be eligible for programs and services offered by CCSD Indian Education, a student must meet the following criteria:

  1. Currently enrolled as a student in the Churchill County School District
  2. Be an enrolled member of a United States-based, state or federally recognized tribe or a descendant of an enrolled tribal member
  3. Have a completed Student Eligibility Certification Form (506) on file with the CCSD Indian Education Program

These programs and services were determined in partnership with the Title VII Parent Advisory Committee (PAC).
