The Indian Education Formula Grant program provides grants to support local educational agencies in their efforts to reform elementary and secondary school programs that serve Indian students. The programs funded are to be based on challenging State content standards and State student performance standards used for all students, and be designed to assist Indian students to meet those standards.
Grant funds supplement the regular school program. Projects help Indian children sharpen their academic skills, assisting students in becoming proficient in the core content areas, and provide students an opportunity to participate in enrichment programs that would otherwise be unavailable. Funds support such activities as after-school programs, enrichment programs, tutoring, and dropout prevention.
At this time the Pulaski School District has an Elementary Level Tutor that is based at our Hillcrest Elementary building. The tutor works with students in grades K-5 to assist them to meet the academic skills and beome proficient in the core content areas.
