Does your child have a Title VII Student Eligibility Certification (506) Form on file?
Our office receives federal funding to meet the needs of Native American students in Amphitheater School District. Funding is based on the number of enrolled Native American students in the district. In order to be counted as a Native American student in the school district and have access to our services, parents must complete the Title VII Eligibility (506) form and return it to their child's school or to our office located at 435 E. Glenn Street.
Does your child have their Certificate Degree of Indian Blood (CDIB) on file?
Each Tribal Nation issues a CDIB to every enrolled tribal member. Under the JOM, every child we service needs to have his/her own CDIB enrollment number. Please contact your Tribal Nation to obtain this information. Upon receipt, please submit a copy to the NAEP office.
How do I request help for my child?
Parents are their child's first teacher. Parents often are the first to notice when their child is having difficulties at school. Our office provides individual tutoring, counseling, mentoring, and can act as an advocate on your child's behalf. As a parent, you can request these services from our office. Complete the referral form and return it to your child's school office or to our office located at 435 E. Glenn Street.
