The Charles County Public Schools Office of Community Engagement and Equity (CCPS) will host an Indian Education Back-to-School Launch Event on Thursday, September 15 at Thomas Stone High School.
Parents of Native American and Alaska Native children can learn more about programs funded through the federal Indian Education Program Grant.
The program emphasizes science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) as well as cultural awareness.
The September 15 kickoff will be from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Thomas Stone Media Center with light refreshments served.
The Indian Education Act was enacted in 1972 to establish a comprehensive approach to meeting the unique needs of Native American and Alaska Native students. The legislation recognizes that Native Americans have unique and culturally related academic needs, while focusing national attention on the needs of students and providing them with services not provided by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
