506 ED Form - Students must have this form completed and on file to be eligible for services. These forms are collected and counted for Frontier's official Indian student count. If you have completed one for your student, even if they transferred and returned, it is not necessary to complete another. For more information contact Alison Black.

Tribal Consultation  - In accordance of Tile VI federal guidelines all schools with a Indian student population of greater than 40% must consult with local tribe(s) programs that are in the school district. 

Indian Policies & Procedures - In accordance with Title VII/Impact Aid federal regulations each school district with students residing on federal land must have approved Indian Policies & Procedures. Each year the IPP's are updated and revised annually at Title VI & Title VII public hearing held each spring. Public comments are open during Parent Advisory Committee meetings and school board meetings.
