About Title VI Indian Education
ASD's Title VI 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 VI - Indian, Native Hawaiian and Alaska Native Education, and from the Anchorage School District for Native Education.
Title VI 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.

Alaska Native Cultural Identity and School Success Survey
The Alaska Native Cultural Identity and School Success Survey (ANCIS)
Students in grades 5-8
This is an online survey given to Alaska Native Students to help the district understand the impact of the U.S. Department of Education funded cultural enrichment programs. The survey results will be used by the ASD’s Title VII Indian Education program to support a positive cultural identity for Alaska Native Students and increase success in school. After the results are analyzed reports are provided to the director of ASD’s Indian Education program and used in annual reports to the U.S. Department of Education to track success of the ASD program that if funds. Results for individual students are never reported.
Under Alaska law, AS 14.03.110, and School Board policy:
Parental permission is required for surveys that inquire into personal or private family affairs of the student not a matter of public record or subject to public observation.
· Parents/guardians may provide annual permission for their student to participate in anonymous surveys requiring parental consent.
For all surveys requiring permission parents will be provided notice and a survey opportunity to review the survey at least two weeks in advance of the administration of the survey. The ANCIS survey can be viewed here and will be administered the week of June 19th during the Title VI Summer Programs.
