See the TITLE VI STUDENT ELIGIBILITY CERTIFICATION (506) FORM. and complete ALL portions of the 506 form. Please return the signed original to your child’s school office. Be sure to include an enrollment number or a copy of documentation (CIB, village or tribal ID, etc.). The address of the ‘Organization maintaining membership” is needed. The 506 form is needed for student eligibility and to generate federal funding for the Title VI Indian Education program. However, enrollment in the program does not obligate a student to participate. Perhaps your family does not have documentation or declines eligibility for Title VI Indian Education services. Please write “No documentation” or “Decline” on the form, along with your student’s name and date of birth. Then return it to your school office. If you change your mind or acquire documentation please contact the ANE program at email@example.com.
