About Title VII Indian Education
ASD's Title VII Indian Education program has staff in schools across the district who concentrate their efforts on academic assistance, counseling and cultural enrichment. We receive funding from two sources: The U.S. Department of Education under Title VII - Indian, Native Hawaiian and Alaska Native Education, and from the Anchorage School District for Native Education.
Title VII positions Youth Development Tutors in schools across the District serving as advocates for students while providing supplemental academic assistance and facilitating dynamic cultural enrichment activities. In addition, we have community counselors offering academic assistance, career and college guidance and crisis intervention.
