The Billings School District has been working to implement MCA 20-1-501, Indian Education for All into the District's classrooms. This act, passed into law in 1999, requires schools to teach about the distinct and unique cultural heritage of American Indians. Title Vll Indian Education Program provides federal financial support to meet the unique needs of American Indian children in our district and works with schools on the improvement of academic achievement.
