Introduction to AIPAC
Every Title VI program must have a parent advisory committee. The American Indian Parent Advisory Committee (AIPAC) provides oversight and recommendation of programming to the Adams 12 Five Star Schools Title VI Native American Education Program. AIPAC meets the second Wednesday of every month during the school year from 6-8 p.m. for more information about meetings and location contact Phillip Gover at 720-972-5897.
AIPAC in addition to the roles provided under Title VI also puts on a few main events within the district in conjunction with the Title VI program. The Annual AIPAC Powwow and Graduation Dinner were both developed and run by AIPAC.
AIPAC Officers for 2022-23 school year are:
Chair: Shay Cox
Treasurer: Shawna Standing Bear
Student Representative: Leia Duran
Title VII Coordinator: Phillip Gover
The various Title VI programs rely on the input of all parents and families of children enrolled in Adams 12 Five Star Schools and utilize the unique knowledge of the children's families about their own traditions and culture to instruct the students. The parent committee is an invaluable resource of information for cultural instructors by either direct knowledge or leads toward other Native American members of the greater Denver metro regions.
