title VI Grant

Enrollment in the Native American/Alaska Native Title VI program is not automatic at the time of school enrollment. A 506 Form and tribal citizenship card documentation of the student must be on file in the OCSD Administration office in order for a student to be enrolled in the Title VI program.  Federal funds allotted to our district are based on the number of enrolled Native American/Alaska Native students in the Title VI program.  Approximately 287 OCSD pre-K – Grade 12 students of documented Native American/Alaska Native ancestry are currently enrolled.  

Title VI Indian Education supports American Indian and Alaska Native students to meet and exceed state academic and cultural standards. Upon enrollment, your child may be eligible to participate in various (K-12) programs including: 

• Cultural Enrichment 

• Cultural Connection Activities 

• Career and post-secondary training and exploration
