The Bdote American Indian Family Advisory Committee will serve in an advisory role to Bdote and help ensure that American Indian students are receiving culturally relevant and equitable educational opportunities. These committees are critical to the achievement and success of American Indian students statewide, and offer a valuable opportunity to strengthen district and parent partnerships.
Bdote’s Family Committee must be comprised primarily of parents/guardians of American Indian students within our district. American Indian district staff are also eligible to serve on the committee, as are American Indian community members. While non-Native district staff may participate in the Family Committee meetings, they are not permitted to be committee members, and should not be included on the Bdote Family Committee roster. District staff should not outnumber committee members at meetings.
