American Indian Education Program
The purpose of the American Indian Education Program (AIEP) in the Fort Worth ISD is to provide academic support through cultural education for identified students. Our goal is to ensure that each American Indian student successfully completes high school prepared for a higher education. This program is awarded federal funding from the office of Indian Education to provide services to Native American students under the provisions of the Indian Education Formula Grant Program authorized in Part A, Subpart I of Title VII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.
