Title VI Indian Education Program

Funded by a grant from the US Department of Education, Office of Indian Education, the Indian Education Title VI Program serves over 11,300 American Indian K-12th grade students and is one of the largest in the United States. The grant's major goals are to increase reading, math and science scores, increase the graduation rate, and decrease dropouts. The program staff includes Youth Development Specialists (YDS) who are assigned to each school.

The program provides parents and students with daily access to the computer lab, library materials, and year-round tours of the museum and art gallery. The elected parent committee meets monthly to advise and monitor the program.

Services for students include: attendance monitoring, conferences, reading, math and science tutorial and enrichment, cultural enrichment, Native American Student (NASA) and American Indians in Science and Engineering (AISES) Clubs, financial assistance with SAT, ACT, and college applications. The students participate in local, state, and national conferences.

The resource center sponsors an After Hours Cultural Academy, Saturday Academy, Summer Enrichment Camp, Native American Student Association (NASA) clubs and NASA Day for middle and high school students, American Indian Science and Engineering (AISES) Club activities. The program also hosts yearly Reading, Scholarship, College, AISES Science Fair, and a Summer Camp workshop. The program coordinates annual school-wide Indian Heritage Month programs.

Dr. Connie Locklear is a member of the inaugural Advisory Board for the @theNCForum Dudley Flood Center for Educational Equity and Opportunity. The center’s work will be to identify and partner with organizations, networks, and leaders who address equity, access, and education opportunities across North Carolina. ncforum.org/floodcenter

The Dudley Flood Center for Educational Equity and Opportunity (Flood Center) will serve as a hub to identify and connect organizations, networks, and leaders to address issues of equity, access, and opportunity in education across North Carolina. The Flood Center is born out of the findings and recommendations of the Forum’s Study Group XVI: Expanding Educational Opportunity (2016), co-chaired by Dr. Flood, as well as the Forum’s Color of Education partnership, which aims to achieve racial equity in education across North Carolina through building connections and engagement across fields of research, policy and practice. The Flood Center aims to continue this work by informing discussions on policies impacting equity & social justice, supporting and advancing equity-focused educator programming, and promote discussions around how schools are funded at the local and state levels, in hopes of achieving equity, access, and opportunity for all young people in North Carolina.
