Indirect services

Title VI provides indirect services to all Alaska Native and American Indian students enrolled in the Anchorage School District by providing training and support for teachers, administration, and support staff; advocacy for students and families; and representatives to serve on district, community, state and national committees. This ensures the voices of our families are heard, their needs are considered, and meaningful connections are made between education and culture.
