American Indian Education Program

The American Indian Education Program at Rochester Public Schools works to provide American Indian, Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian, and Canadian First Nations systematic opportunities to culture, language, and student advocacy. Opportunities include student groups, 1:1 support, family engagement, access to traditional teachings, and educational networks that support Native students.

Parent Education Committee

The American Indian Education Parent Committee functions to ensure all Indigenous students are successful in Rochester Public Schools. Native student advocacy is accomplished by the committee in several ways. The committee works to guide the American Indian Education Program and provide oversight on the federal budget. The committee also works to partner with the school district at a board policy level. 

If you are interested in joining this committee or volunteering for any of our events or activities please call 328-4236 or email Dawn Bjoraker, Native American Liaison.
