The Native American Education Program was created to meet the unique and culturally related academic needs of the American Indian and Alaskan Native students.  The program provides cultural enrichment and educational support to all Native American, Native Hawaiian and Alaskan Native students. Adams 12 Five Star Schools Native American Education Program is made available to schools primarily through a Title VI grant by the Indian Education office of the U. S. Department of Education.  

The annual Title VI grant amount is dependant on the annual number of students being served in Five Star District. Only those students with a completed Title VII Student Eligibility Certification or "506 form" count toward the annual number.
