The Office of Public Instruction Indian Education Division is offering grants for the 2016-2017
school year! The grant is intended to provide additional resources for creating a dynamic school-wide, professional learning plan for the implementation of Indian Education for All. The goals of the Indian Education for All K-12 Grant include these important components:
1. Each school/district will include in its IEFA policy and/or plan, a process for the selection and inclusion of tribally specific resources relevant to Montana tribes.
2. Design and provide a program of professional development for instructional staff that develops capacity to integrate Indian Education for All throughout the K-12 curriculum.
3. Develop and establish collaborative relationships with American Indian educators, schools and students in order to further cross cultural awareness and understandings.
This K-12 IEFA grant is open to any Montana public school district. Preference will be given to schools which have not had a previous IEFA grant.
Complete proposals are due June 30, 2016.
