American Indian Parent Advisory Committee (AIPAC) is meeting again!
Hello / Boozhoo / Hau Mitakuyepi Harbor City Families,
We want to share a new opportunity for our American Indian families. Beginning this year, Harbor City school will be re-convening our American Indian Parent Advisory Committee (AIPAC).The AIPAC is established in school district’s with American Indian students and its purpose is outlined by Minnesota Statutes. This committee serves in an advisory role and helps ensure that American Indian students are receiving culturally relevant and equitable educational opportunities. These committees are critical to the achievement and success of American Indian students statewide, and offer a valuable opportunity to strengthen district and parent partnerships. Additional information pertaining to the AIPACs role in supporting students and families can be found at the Minnesota Department of Education website at: https://education.mn.gov/MDE/dse/indian/parent/.
If you are interested in participating on Harbor City’s AIPAC committee, please contact me via email at SZimmerman@harborcityschool.org.Miigwech,
Director, Special Education Services, Indigenous Education, Pronouns: he/him/his
