The Indian Education Office provides technical assistance to school districts especially districts that receive federal Title VII Indian Education funding.
The outreach is also extended to Tribal Nations and Education Departments plus community agencies that serve American Indian/Alaskan Native Families.
The Office of Indian Education (OIE), located in the office of the Under Secretary (OUS), was created in 1972 under the Indian Education Act. The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 amends the Indian education programs in OIE as Title VII, Part A of Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The Federal legislation focuses on the education of American Indians, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians for preschool to graduate school.
