 ENROLLMENT IN PROGRAM DOES NOT OBLIGATE STUDENT OR  PARENTS TO PARTICIPATE!

Are you, your child or child’s grandparents an enrolled member of a American Indian tribe or Alaskan Native group? If so, your child can enroll in the Title VII program. Enrollment will increase opportunities available for your child. Our program goal is to meet and exceed state academic and cultural standards. 

Please indicate if your family declines participation or does not have tribal enrollment to participate. Write student’s name, DOB and status and return to school. We will note this in Database.

If you have questions please call 801-798-4480 Indian Education.

Nebo Title VII Public Meeting will be held May 6, 2015 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm at Larsen Elementary School in Spanish Fork, Utah. We will give information about the supplementary federal grant that runs our Title VII program. Please come and participate in this important meeting.

Nebo Title VII student performing group "Wasatch Eagles" were invited to sing for Senators on American Indian Caucus Day on 2/12/15. We took a bus of American Indian students to the capital to watch 2 bills go through legislation, met tribal leaders and took a tour. The song is called the "Deer Song" composed by Jennifer Kreisberg.
