Native Education Program

The NEP Parent Advisory Committee is a required and essential component of the NEP program.  The PAC provides leadership and insight to the NEP so that students of the program are served in culturally responsive ways with Social-Emotional and Academic support.  The PAC plays an integral role in developing the TVI grant and the NEP activities each year.  The PAC is required in order for the NEP to exist and for TVI Federal funding to support our students.
