Twin Rivers Unified School District invites its families and community members to be a part of this family engagement series where participants will have an opportunity to interact and network on the educational needs of American Indian families. These meetings will be centered around the experiences and knowledge of all participants, and discuss the educational and culturally related needs of our American Indian students.
Purpose of the Empowerment Series for Native American Families
The purpose of this Empowerment Series is to provide an opportunity for Twin Rivers Native families and community members to interact and network on the educational needs of American Indian families. These meetings will be centered on the experiences and knowledge of all participants, and discuss the educational and culturally related needs of our American Indian students
What is the purpose of the Parent Advisory Committee ?
Our goal is to develop a Parent Advisory Committee of American Indian/Alaska Native parents, families, students, teachers and community members. The Advisory Committee would be essential in supporting the development of an American Indian Education Program within the Twin Rivers Unified School District. This program will be designed to support academic success and cultural enrichment that honors native culture and values.
In addition, the Twin Rivers Needs Assessment for Native American Student Support & Resource Program will assist us in identifying families interested in the development of a program to support the educational and culturally related needs of our American Indian students.

How families can support in the development of a Native American Education Program for next year?
During Part 1 of the grant application process, the Office of Indian Education requires a completed Title VI Ed 506 Student Eligibility Form. An Ed 506 Form must be completed, signed, and dated by the child’s parent/guardian to certify an Indian student’s eligibility for the program. A separate form is required for each child.
If you would like your child to receive future support and services provided by the Title VI 6 Formula Grant, please complete and return the enclosed Ed 506 form by March 5, 2021. Mail the completed form to Student Services using the enclosed envelope or email the completed form to Native.Ed@Twinriversusd.org
