Indigenous Education Program
What is Title VI?
Title VI is a federally funded formula grant program that currently services 270 Native students in the Massena Central School District. Our program continues to provide courses and services that support our Mohawk Language and Culture Instruction. We also provide academic instructional support and enrichment activities.
Title VI (Part A)
Indian Education supports the efforts to meet the unique educational and culturally related academic needs of American Indian and Alaska Native students to assist them in meeting the same challenging state student academic achievement standards as other students.
Formula Grants to Local Educational Agencies supports local educational agencies in their efforts to reform elementary school and secondary school programs that serve Indian students in order to ensure that such programs – (1) are based on challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards that are used for all students; and (2) are designed to assist Indian students in meeting those standards.
Additional Programs and Contact Information
The MCSD is fortunate to have many programs serving students. Some of these programs are housed right here in the school on a full time or part-time basis, others are available to come to the school on an as-needed basis.
