Welcome to our new Indian Education page.

The goal of the Indian Education Division is to assist in the successful implementation of the Indian Education for All Act (MCA 20-1-501) and to work to close the achievement gap for American Indian students in Montana.
Implementation of Indian Education for All is achieved through professional development, grants to local schools, funding to regional education providers and other partners, and through the development and publication of material and resources for K-12 public schools.
The Indian Education Division works with schools on Indian Student Achievement through state funding and federal ESEA Title III funding. This is accomplished through grants, professional development, pilot projects and technical assistance to individual schools.
