A Tutor for Title VII Indian Education

Who We Are

Title VII Indian Education is the policy of the United States to fulfill the Federal Government's unique and continuing trust relationship to the educational needs of American Indian and Alaska Native people. The 1972 Indian Education Act was the landmark legislation establishing a comprehensive approach to meeting the unique needs of American Indian and Alaska Native students. The unique aspects of the original authority have been retained through subsequent legislative reauthorizing statutes, with the latest revision occurring with the amendments made by the 2001 No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), which reauthorized the program as Title VII Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Title VII Indian Education aims to provide cultural and academic services to American Indian and Alaska Native students. One aspect of the program is to provide students with tutors in math, science, and language arts. Tutors work mostly in the student's school but sometimes tutoring might take place in a Madison Public Library or other convenient location located throughout Madison.

What We Do

Title VII Indian Education is a federal project designed to meet the unique educational and culturally related academic needs of American Indian and Alaska Native students. Through these efforts, the goal is that American Indian and Alaska Native students will meet the same challenging student academic achievement standards as all other students are expected to meet. The tutoring program is very helpful to the students it is able to serve. Teachers and parents have been very pleased with the results not to mention the direct impact it has on the students.
