• Purpose of the American Indian Education Parent Advisory Committee 

    The purpose of the Anoka-Hennepin American Indian Education Parent Advisory Committee and Indian Education program is to encourage and inspire the academic achievement, social and emotional development, and cultural awareness of our American Indian Students; to serve as a resource to review and recommend accurate curriculum; and to promote cultural diversity between community, staff and students.


    Parent committees

    The Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) is a committee composed of parents or guardians of American Indian students, school district representatives and secondary American Indian students. There is also a separate committee that works specifically with the Johnson O’Malley Grant (JOM).  This committee is composed of parents or guardians of JOM certified American Indian students.

    The Parent Advisory Committee and Johnson O’Malley Committee meet on a monthly basis throughout the school year. They provide an important link with the Indian community and advise the school district on all aspects of the Indian Education program. If you are interested in serving, please contact your cluster advisor for more information.

    All parent committee meetings are open to the public. See our Events page for more information.
