    Welcome to Huchoosedah  

    SPS Native Education Department

    Native Education is a referral service. We work with students, parents and guardians, teachers, principals, and SPS departments on a case-by-case basis to address the broad scope of needs our Native students face. We want every family to understand how to navigate the district's resources and support all schools in understanding the unique experience Native students face interacting with our system. Our goal is to ensure all Native students have a high-quality educational experience and reach the goal of graduation.

    Please call or email us! We are here to help, problem solve, and inspire.
