Indian Education Student Achievement Indian Ed for All

In 2007, the Montana State Legislature passed Montana Code Annotated 20‐9‐330, appropriating $200 per American Indian child to provide funding to school districts for the purpose of closing the educational achievement gap that exists between American Indian students and non‐Indian students. According to MCA 20‐ 9‐330 (2) (a), funds were to be determined by “…using the number of American Indian students enrolled in the district based on the count of regularly enrolled students on the first Monday in October of the prior school year as reported to the Office of Public Instruction” and deposited into the district’s general fund. This site is to meant to build resources for educators to continue to support Indian Student Achievement through academics and well-being.
