Indian Education Project
The Appleton Area School District's Title VII - Indian Education Project (IEP) is a culturally-responsive academic support program designed to address the unique educational needs of our American Indian students. Through a partnership with Goodwill NCW, the IEP Coordinator provides individualized, targeted academic, higher education and cultural support for our 4K-12 Native American students.
The IEP Coordinator also facilitates enrichment programs that reflect and embrace the cultural and tribal values of our Native American students, parents and families. Each IEP cultural event affords students with a holistic learning experience and first-hand opportunity to interact with and actively learn from American Indian resource people.
IEP Students learn about and come to understand cultural perspectives, philosophies and traditional teachings that will help them develop their unique characteristics and realize their full potential as American Indian students, community members and global citizens. The IEP Coordinator also serves as an educational resource for AASD and our local community about American Indian history, culture and tribal sovereignty.
As a public school district, AASD's collective and ever-constant mission is to provide each student with a positive and rich learning experience that goes well beyond the academic mechanics of high test scores. Reaching this goal requires educators to know our students as individuals, and we are committed to putting in the hard, often complicated work needed to build trusting and caring relationships with them. Without this foundation -- and the gift of our educators' passion for teaching -- student learning cannot occur.
