Native American Education
SPS’s Native American Education Program is a Referral Service
We work with students, parents and guardians, teachers, principals, and Seattle Public Schools More 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 Gail Morris firstname.lastname@example.org We are here to help, problem solve, and inspire.
