Native American Program

  • Madison Elementary School District's Native American program is designed to address the educational and social needs of Native American students. We receive funding through the Title VI Indian Education and Johnson O'Malley grants to provide supplemental academic and enrichment activities that are culturally relevant for Native American students.

    Madison reports the number of eligible Native American students to the Office of Indian Education in Washington D.C. and the Indian Education Office at the Arizona Department of Education to determine the district's eligibility for funding and funding calculations.

    The number of students we report is based on the documents we receive regarding students, so it is important to complete and submit documents to ensure continued support services. To determine a student is eligible under the Title VI and JOM grants, the following documents need to be completed and submitted:

    • Title VI ED 506 Indian Student Eligibility Certification Form
    • Indian Student Enrollment/Certification of Eligibility (Form 305)
    • Copy of Certificate of Indian Degree of Blood (CIDB) OR Request form for a copy of CIDB from Tribal Enrollment Office

    Please submit the signed and completed documents to Sylvia Kish at Madison Park School, 1431 East Campbell Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85014 or you may submit the forms to your child(ren)'s school front office. Instructions on completing the forms are provided. If you have any questions, please contact Sylvia Kish at (602) 664-7584. Thank you for your continued support for Native American Programs at Madison.
