According to the 2000 census, the Alamo community has a population of 2072 with a 60% unemployment rate and is the poorest Native American Community not only in the State of New Mexico but also in the United States. Currently 56% of the population lives below the poverty level and a per capita income of $6528. According to the Coalition of Native American grantees, Department of Labor, it has the lowest per capita income of all Native American communities in the United States. Separated geographically from the main reservation, the Alamo has long been the stepchild of the Navajo Nation, largely neglected by the Bureau of Indian Affairs as well as by the tribal government. In 1968, the BIA placed Alamo under the administration of the Navajo Nation, transferring it from the Southern Pueblos Agency, Albuquerque Area Office, to Eastern Navajo Agency in Crownpoint, New Mexico, and the Navajo Area Office in Gallup, New Mexico. The Navajo Nation receives over 3 million dollars from the BIA for governmental infrastructure at Alamo. Less than 1% actually reaches the Alamo. Even today, Alamo exists in a cloudy bureaucratic limbo. It’s not legally a reservation has no congressionally recognized boundaries, and no water or mineral rights for its 63,000 acres of land. The original BIA school at Alamo was built in the 1930’s, but closed in 1941. Children from Alamo were sent to boarding schools off the reservation in Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and other distant places. In 1957, the BIA dormitory was put into operation in Magdalena and children were boarded there and attended the Magdalena public school. As Alamo parents watched their children go off to school in the fall, returning only for holidays and some weekends, they began to discuss a way to create a community school at Alamo. A school would eliminate the 35-mile bus ride to Magdalena, the need to house children in the BIA dormitory, and allow the children to live at home, give parents the opportunity to be involved in their children’s education. The creation of the Alamo Navajo School Board, Inc. in 1979 represented the political birth of the Alamo’s leaders. Taking advantage of the 1975 Indian Self-Determination Act, the School Board was able to contract for its own services, and the Alamo leaders began to make decisions for themselves. The concept of self-determination found fertile ground in a community, which knew it wanted a school, health services, and local control, but previously had no vehicle to obtain those things. The Alamo Navajo Community School opened its door on October 1, 1979 as a K-8 school in four portable buildings. On December 15, 1980, the contract scope was amended making it a K-12 school with six additional trailers and 317 students. In 1982, planning, coordination, and construction for a permanent facility was begun, culminating in 54,000 square foot structure, which includes classrooms, labs, a library/media center, gymnasium, cafeteria, agriculture/greenhouse lab, and shops for industrial arts. The Alamo Navajo School Board, Inc. now operates the K-12 schools as well as an Indian Health Clinic, Early Childhood Center, Adult Education Program, Roads Department, Technology Department, & Wellness Center.
The mission of Anchorage Christian Schools is to partner with the home and church to educate and train children and young people who function successfully in today’s church and world. We want to train our students in the knowledge of God, teach them a Christian worldview, and provide an excellent academic education. And, giving thanks to God, ACS has been training children and young people for this purpose for almost 40 years! God has blessed ACS with the best facilities of any private school in Alaska. But facilities don’t make a great school. ACS has also been blessed with highly qualified faculty and staff who view their teaching here as a ministry, a calling of the Lord. We have partnered with over 50 local area churches to assist them in the training of their youth. ACS is accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NAC). This accreditation status is an outside validation of the excellent programs offered by ACS and allow our graduates to attend colleges and universities anywhere in the world. It is our goal to prepare a child not only for this life but for the life to come. This unique philosophical basis works its way into all of our curricular and extracurricular programs and makes ACS distinctive among other educational programs in this area. It is a privilege and honor to serve with the dedicated team of staff and families at ACS. Anchorage Christian Schools has been blessed with a rich heritage dating back almost 40 years. Today we enjoy our 20 acre, debt-free campus as the result of God’s faithfulness and blessing to the Anchorage Baptist Temple, our sponsoring church. We pray for God’s continued blessing and wisdom to be good stewards with the resources and people He entrusts to us. As you “check us out” through our website I hope you will get a glimpse of what God has done and is doing in the lives of the children and young people He has entrusted to us. Please contact us if we can answer any specific questions or be of any assistance to you or your family. We pray consistently for the right families to become involved in this unique, God-blessed ministry and that He will continue to bless the efforts here for His glory.
As a high school teacher in rural Alaska, off the road system, I see every day the lack of access that my students have to information because they don't have internet access outside of school, and the school connection is not optimal. I have several students who are ready to make the jump to much greater levels of learning who simply cannot because they can't connect with the outside world.

Clayton Valley opened its doors to students in 1958 under the leadership of inaugural principal Dan Della. Originally part of the Mt. Diablo Unified School District, Clayton Valley is fed by Diablo View Middle School in Clayton and Pine Hollow Middle School in Concord, and by Ayers, Highlands, Silverwood and Mt. Diablo Elementary Schools. In 2011, a petition was submitted pursuant to California law to convert the Clayton Valley into a teacher-driven conversion charter high school. After a series of steps, on January 11, 2012, the Contra Costa County Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the charter. Clayton Valley Charter High School, opened in the summer of 2012, and continues the long and proud tradition of its predecessor, Clayton Valley High School. CVCHS currently serves 2200 students in the cities of Concord and Clayton. The mission of CVCHS is “to unite our stakeholders, including students, teachers and staff, parents, and community members, in a common goal to diligently prepare all students for success in the 21st Century. We believe in instilling timeless principles and fostering a culture of excellence with RIGOR, RELEVANCE and RELATIONSHIPS” (Charter Petition, page 6).
The vision of Como-Pickton CISD is to develop every child to be a life-long learner, enabling them to be effective communicators, complex thinkers, and productive citizens qualified to meet the uncertainties of the future. The mission of Como-Pickton Consolidated Independent School District, in partnership with the home and community, is to provide excellence in education through relevant learning opportunities that will prepare students to achieve personal fulfillment and to become responsible, productive members of society. Through challenging and engaging instruction, all students can become successful learners. As models for students, CPCISD personnel should engage in life-long learning opportunities, measured by the achievement of personal and professional goals. Students are accountable for their own learning and actions; parents are accountable for their children; and the district is accountable to the community. Students should have access to a quality education provided by CPCISD in a community that supports a diverse population. The collaboration and inclusion of students, parents, staff, and community in the decision-making process is vital to the success of CPCISD and should be actively fostered.
The Cordova School District's main goal is the education of all students and the preparation and development of all staff. This ensures that all students and staff have the capacity to utilize information and communication technologies. Keeping in mind the ever-changing needs of our world in this day and age, the Cordova School District (CSD) is committed to meeting these goals and to integrating technology into all aspects of the students' and teachers' lives. This technology plan focuses on curriculum integration, future plans, and measures of evaluation for implementation. The underlying need for ongoing assessment and change is a major component of the plan. We are interested in the utilization of information technologies as learning tools because we live in an information age. All students, teachers and staff members need the ability to use technological tools and the knowledge to be responsible, active and productive people in a 21st century global society. Without information and communication technologies (ICT) literacy skills, we cannot meet the new demands of our global society. With these skills we can meet the changes that are continually occurring. Cordova's geographic isolation will be a hindrance to our local economy if we cannot utilize information and communication technologies to become part of the larger global economy. ICT literacy skills provide CSD stakeholders the option to choose how they will live, work, learn and play. The ability to be conversant with these technologies and skilled in learning new technologies will become more and more important in the economic and cultural health of our region.

ECRA will promote pre-collegiate expectations for all students, implement strategies to make the high school drop-out rate the lowest in the state, and institute business/financial/operational practices that are credible and transparent. The report on “Making the Case for Educating the Whole Child,” endorses the philosophy that students must be healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged. A child who enters school healthy and feels safe is ready to learn. A student who feels connected to school is more likely to stay in school. All students who have access to challenging and engaging academic programs are better prepared for further education, work, and civic life. These components must work together, not in isolation. That is the goal of whole child education. ECRA will support students by bridging their background knowledge and skills to those found essential for their current and next level of learning, as measured by the NMPED NM Common Core State Standards. ECRA will empower students using diverse sheltered instruction to acquire the academic language found in New Mexico Common Core State Standards and apply this knowledge/skills to various content areas and problem-solving opportunities as measured by common formative assessment and NWEA MAP Assessments.
In 2002, the vestries of Christ Church of Andover and Grace Church of Lawrence convened to brainstorm on a joint high-impact project to serve Lawrence. After researching and reviewing a number of ideas, they agreed that the highest need and the largest opportunity for impact was to address the lack of high quality educational opportunities for young women from the city, and the best way to do this was to start an independent middle school for girls. On June 3, 2004 the board of trustees held their first meeting at Christ Church in Andover. Trustees quickly got to work hiring a founding head of school, choosing a building and location for the new school, and ramping up fundraising efforts. On April 24, 2006, Esperanza held its first admissions lottery and selected 21 fifth graders and 21 sixth graders. On September 6, 2006, with balloons, music, and many friends and supporters on hand, Esperanza Academy opened its doors to its first students. For the following two years, Esperanza added one grade per year to reach capacity. Esperanza currently educates 60 middle school girls in grades five through eight, and supports 141 alumnae in secondary schools and colleges across the country. Esperanza graduated its first class of eighth graders in 2009; those young women graduated from high school in 2013 and are on track to finish college in 2017. In 2015, Esperanza earned full accreditation from the Association of Independent Schools in New England (AISNE). Esperanza Academy is proud to provide an exceptional education to the young women of Lawrence. The four years that our girls spend on campus at Esperanza, from the ages of 10-14, are a time of tremendous physical, emotional, personal, and academic growth. We believe strongly that spending these four years surrounded and supported by female peers allows our students to maximize their growth, take healthy risks, and reach their full potential.
Gerard’s history began in the 1960s, when it was founded as the Gerard School, a treatment site for the care of children. Throughout the years, It has been known as Gerard of Minnesota, Gerard Treatment Programs, and, today, Gerard Academy — but it has always retained its focus of caring for children and families. Situated on a beautiful 12-acre campus in Austin, MN, Gerard Academy was the former Hormel Estate. The site has retained many of its homelike charms, including the family living room, grand staircase, cozy bedrooms, entry drive, gardens, and trees. A nature preserve is adjacent to the property. When you arrive on campus, you immediately see this is not a typical residential treatment facility. The warmth of the surroundings is mirrored by the interactions of staff with children and families. Gerard Academy has demonstrated excellence in its treatment approach. In 2012, Gerard Academy was Provider of the Year by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). Under the leadership of Executive Director Brent Henry, Gerard has worked to expand its service line to provide more mental health options for youth and families. The Bridging and Short-Term programs were developed in partnership with Dakota County. In 2015, Gerard opened an outpatient program to serve children, teens, adults, and families in the community in answer to County and School needs for mental health services in the area.

We offer each of our students a structured, supportive, and individualized educational setting. Turning Point’s educational programs utilize Positive Behavior Support best practices. Each youth in the educational program has the option of earning his or her GED, graduating from Turning Point’s Waverly School, transferring credits back to his or her home school, or enrolling in courses for college credit. We also offer assistance to students through vocational education options. It is our goal to ensure that each student advances to his or her appropriate grade level while in our care. We are proud of our 10-to-1 student/teacher ratio. Our staff members include licensed special education teachers, educational counselors, and numerous volunteers from the community and local universities. We also receive federal funds that provide for a Title I (literacy) teacher.

Being situated in a largely rural community, Wasco High School has for many years offered a program that places heavy emphasis on the development of both vocational and agricultural skills. Agriculture remains a major element of the school’s curriculum as evidenced by the fact that some five hundred Wasco High students take agriculture related course work. Ag students have an opportunity to learn the practical aspects of agriculture on the district’s 110 acre school farm which operates in conjunction with a 10 acre farm lab where instruction if provided in welding, ag mechanics, plant science, and animal care. Recent remodeling and updating projects are indicative of changes that have taken place in the district’s curricular focus. The auto shop has been converted into two classroom, as has the sewing room, since both of these programs have been dropped from the curriculum; the metal shop has been converted into a weight room for athletes; a rehearsal room in the auditorium now houses the computer lab; and the career and student centers have both been greatly expanded. The district received a tech grant in 1998 that provided funding for the installation of computers in classrooms. Systems have been configured according to the state technology model and all stations have access to the internet. Assignments in the core areas of the curriculum require students to glean information from the internet and, consequently, a great deal of staff development time has been devoted to familiarizing teachers with techniques for using the computer as a teaching tool. In 1996 the district opened Independence High School to accommodate those students who fail to thrive in a traditional classroom setting. This facility, on a separate campus, serves as a continuation school, a center for those students on independent study, and also houses the district’s adult education program. In 2004, the district completed a needs assessment and demographic study that resulted in the development of a very ambitious Facilities Master Plan. Elements of the plan will be completed in three phases and will require extensive expansion and modification of existing facilities.
The Washington Jesuit Academy is a school for boys from low-income communities in 4th through 8th grades. The mission of the Washington Jesuit Academy is to provide a high quality and comprehensive education to boys from low-income communities, offering them a safe, rigorous academic setting and advancing their spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical growth. The guiding vision of the Washington Jesuit Academy is to create an education model that addresses the cycle of poverty that plagues our students’ communities, and replaces it with a cycle of hope, determination and success. In order to challenge the city’s widening achievement gap and bleak graduation statistics for low-income males, WJA incorporates the Magis (“the more”) and asks the important question: What more can we do for our students, our families and our community to change the face of urban education? We instill in our students the confidence to find “the more” in themselves, giving them the necessary tools of moral character and compassion. Through the principles of a WJA education, students become willing to be courageous, and just in their actions, as well as active in their acceptance of God, their own gifts, and others. We believe that every student will learn to lead purpose-driven lives as members of their communities, becoming reflective, action-oriented citizens whose focus will be improving the lives of those most in need.

Beginning in 1876 and ending in 1956, the United States Government and it's Department of Indian Affairs were responsible for the American culture and English language education of Zuni children. Then in 1956, the Americanizing education of Zuni children was transferred from the United States government to the New Mexico State Government. during the period from 1956 to 1980, the three existing school sites, that once were operated by the government, were now operated by the Gallup-McKinley County School District which was a State of New Mexico Public School District. These school sites were Zuni Elementary, Dowa Yalanne Elementary and Zuni High School. However, at the start of the 3rd decade of being a part of GMCS, many community people decided that the Zuni students' educational needs were not being met. Therefore, during the latter half of the 1970's, the Zuni people started discussions on the needs and desires to have their own school district to address the educational problems that remained unresolved under the large Gallup-McKinley County School District. During the mid-1970's, many community meetings were held to discuss the issues of their own school district. Then finally, a tribal election was conducted on the issue. The Zuni tribal members voted their approval to create a new school district/system for its community students. Based on the documented wishes of the Zuni people, the tribal government officials started up very definite planning for the creation of a new Zuni Public District/System. The definite planning commenced with an official Zuni Tribal Council Resolution, Resolution Number M70-79-1054, dated March 16, 1978. This official resolution authorized and directed the Zuni Pueblo's Division of Education to begin work on the feasibility study for a separate school district for the Zuni community. This feasibility study included research of the pros and cons of several types of school district/systems options such as Bureau of Indian Affairs contract school operated by the community, a Bureau of Indian Affairs school operated by the Bureau's system, and a New Mexico State Public School. A second resolution, Resolution Number M70-79-1054, dated May 7, 1979, authorized the Zuni Tribal Government to obtain funds from the United States Bureau of Indian Affairs and to hire a staff to plan for the separation of the Zuni schools from the Gallup-McKinley County School District. The plans would be to create a new school district that would be a State of New Mexico Public School District. A final resolution, Resolution Number M70-79-1108, dated December 18, 1979, was to request the State Board of Education of the State of New Mexico "to create a public school district" coextensive with the McKinley portion of the Zuni Reservation to be know as the "Zuni Public School District."

In January 1926, two local women’s philanthropic groups, the Davenport Study Club and the Fortnightly Study Club prepared plans for a library in the Davenport community. The ladies arranged with the City Council to utilize the room above the city jail two afternoons and one evening a week. To finance the library, the Study Clubs gave a dinner at the local Presbyterian Church and solicited the public to contribute books. At $0.50 a plate, the dinner raised $111.00 as reported on the first Library Board meeting on February 9, 1926. The Davenport Public Library was officially opened on Saturday, March 13, 1926. Everyone in the community was invited to tea and to apply for a library card. At a Library Board meeting on March 25, 1927, the librarian reported that the collection had grown to include 765 books and that the library had 35-40 weekly visitors. In 1928, the City Council took over the library and budgeted $150.00 annually and received further financial assistance from the Study Clubs for several years. After three moves, the Davenport Public Library was relocated in 2004 to its current location. Davenport Public Library (DPL) serves a community of 1,735 people of Davenport in Washington State. DPL holds a collection of approximately 13, items. DPL serves the City of Davenport, and other unincorporated communities within the Lincoln County in Washington State.

The first library in Cordova began as a “reading room” within the cozy walls of the Red Dragon. Rev. Eustace Ziegler thought it important to offer the men working on the Copper River and Northwest Railway proper recreational opportunities and ran an informal lending library in the clubhouse. “A fireplace in the center of the room was kept burning for cheer,” stated Ziegler. Located on donated railroad property, the Red Dragon still stands as a testament to Ziegler’s efforts. In June of 1925 the women’s guild of St. George’s Episcopal Church opened the book collection to the public creating Cordova’s first public library. Since that time the library has occupied the Adams building and the Windsor Hotel before moving to the Centennial Building in 1971. In November 2015 the library moved to The Cordova Center, a spectacular multi-purpose facility designed to meet the needs of Cordovans well into the future!

Cross Road Health Ministries, Inc. currently provides services at three road-accessible clinics. In the upper part of the Copper River Valley, in Southcentral Alaska, weekday outpatient and 24x7 urgent care services are provided at our main clinic, Cross Road Medical Center, in the town of Glennallen. Weekday outpatient services are also offered two days per week at North Country Clinic, a small cabin at Grizzly Lake. In Interior Alaska, outpatient and urgent care services are provided at Interior Alaska Medical Clinic in the city of Delta Junction. Like most outpatient clinics, weekdays are usually filled with the general problems familiar to any family practice clinic. We see patients in all age groups, newborn to geriatric, with acute and chronic health needs. We also provide preventive health screening and education. For advanced care, patients are referred to specialists and specialty clinics in the nearest cities, usually several road hours away. Often interspersed with this are emergency and critical situations. Patients with cardiac, trauma, medical, obstetric and other emergencies are stabilized and then transported by medevac to hospitals located in major cities. The resident population in rural Alaska is sparse and widely dispersed. Long driving distances combined with inclement weather and challenging road conditions during the long, cold winters and sometimes limited access to reliable personal transportation at any time of the year can present barriers to patients wishing to access healthcare.

The rural location of Frontier Community Services ("FCS") and the fact that until recently there were no other disability service agencies in the area contributed to the development the wide scope of services currently available through our agency. FCS is truly unique in that we are able to provide services to consumers with disabilities of all ages and not just one specialized group. Well over 500 people are routinely being served by the various programs that FCS provides. That number does not include individuals that have attended educational presentations regularly provided by FCS programs. According to the last area census (2000) the population for the Kenai Peninsula Borough was roughly 49,691. The same 2000 census shows that approximately 5685 individuals between the ages of 5-64 experience a disability that impacts their life in someway. The Peninsula also has a growing senior (age 65 and older) population. The 2000 census also shows the senior population for our area at 3649. These census number show that there is a substantial and growing population of individuals that will need to use agencies such as FCS to provide services in order for them to continue to live in the home and community of their choice.

The Dena’ina Wellness Center’s design supports the Dene’ Philosophy of Care, with integrated workspaces allowing care teams to collaborate on treatment plans and customize them to each individual. Architectural details throughout the building represent the history of the area and our people. Century-old Douglas fir planks reclaimed from a Kenai River cannery span much of the interior. The ocean is depicted in blue across the floor near the main entrance; agates inset in the flooring were collected by tribal members; and Dena’ina names are used throughout the facility. The tribe earned a coveted Indian Health Service Joint Venture Award in 2011 to cover the building’s operational and maintenance costs for at least the next 20 years. The Dena’ina Wellness Center also achieved Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Certification.
