Columbia School District No. 206 Indian Education
It is the intent of the Columbia School District No. 206 that all Indian children of school age have equal access to all programs, services and activities offered within the school district. To this end, the Columbia School District No. 206 will consult with local tribal officials and parents of Indian children in the planning and development of Indian Policies and Procedures (IPPs), general education programs, and activities. These policies and procedures will be reviewed annually and revisions will be made within 90 days of the determination that requirements are not being adequately met.

The mission of the Office of Indian Education is to support the efforts of local educational agencies, Indian tribes and organizations, postsecondary institutions, and other entities to meet the unique cultural, language, and educational needs of such students; and ensure that all students meet the challenging State academic standards.
The Every Student Succeeds Act (page 246) amends the Indian education programs as Title VI, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed on December 10, 2015, and represents good news for our nation’s schools. The new law builds on key areas of progress in recent years, made possible by the efforts of educators, communities, parents, and students across the country.
