Alaska Native Education
In 1974, the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District (FNSBSD) applied for and was awarded an Indian Education Title VII, Part C (PL 100-297) grant, to create the Alaska Native Education (ANE) Program which serves American Indian and Alaska Native students. The program is advised by the ANE Parent Committee, as required by the Office of Indian Education under the grant.
After parent input and review of student records, the program evolved and expanded in the 1980's to provide more direct ANE student services such as academic tutoring, attendance monitoring, and cultural activities.
Currently our program utilizes a model of service with the goal of increasing academic achievement in math, reading and writing, and school attendance.
The program provides support through:
- Supplemental academic assistance
- Counseling, home/school liaison and referral services
- Cultural enrichment
