Minnesota American Indian Education Summit

Closing the Achievement Gap: Awareness, Implementation, and Collaboration

Madden’s on Gull Lake
Brainerd, Minnesota
September 23, 2013
8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m.


This event, hosted by the Minnesota Department of Education and the Midwest Comprehensive Center, will be especially beneficial for state and tribal leaders and policymakers, tribal and public education administrators and staff, and Indian education stakeholders.

Building on the Governor’s American Indian Education Summit held on January 9, 2012, and, as a result of new Minnesota legislation, this event is the first in a series of annual events addressing American Indian education issues in Minnesota. Key topics to be addressed at this event include the following:

  • American Indian education in Minnesota, with sessions on meeting requirements for Indian education in your school, connecting to the Minnesota education system, and best practices currently being used by schools and districts in the state
  • Data use and American Indian students, with sessions on graduation rates and dropout rates for American Indian students
  • Partnerships that benefit American Indian students, with sessions regarding collaborations among tribal education, public schools and districts, and community organizations

Please contact Alicia Garcia, agarcia@air.org with any questions. We look forward to seeing you there!
