    SPS Native Education Department

    Native Education is a referral service. We work with students, parents, 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 resources of the district 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 education experience and reach the goal of graduation.

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