Title VII Academics
Academic support for Title VII students
Learn more about the importance of attendance.
Title VII services focus on assisting Alaska Native and American Indian students enrolled in the Anchorage School District in achieving academic success through culturally relevant supports that are based on individual needs.
Parents who are interested in helping guide the efforts of ASD's Title VII program may apply to join the Native Advisory Committee.
Grade level resources
Title VII offers a variety of academic resources specifically for eligible Alaska Native and American Indian students. Students in grades K-12 are welcome to attend our Evening Program on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:15 to 8:15 p.m.
Other ways you can help your child succeed are to monitor Zangle grades and assignments or request progress reports from your child's teacher. Before and after-school tutoring is often available at individual schools throughout the district, and teachers are more than willing to collaborate with you in creating a homework system or improvement plan for your child. Many schools also have peer mentoring programs where younger students can receive help and guidance from older students.
Title VII also has tutors and counselors in many schools. You can check to see if a tutor is available at your school here. If you have questions about whether or not your student is eligible, please visit our eligibility page.

More resources for families
At Title VII, we know that family involvement is the key to success for our students. We focus on outreach and engagement with families as a primary method to increase student achievement. Within Title VII, families have access to a variety of supports and resources. Families who feel they could benefit from assistance navigating available resources may contact the Title VII staff member at their school or the Title VII office.
