Native American | Alaskan Native Education is a federal and state funded SKSD program that serves Indigenous students from approximately 83 different tribes, 32 of them from Washington State alone. The district provides services like tutoring, homework assistance, cultural summer camps teaching Indigenous crafts and cultures, and employs a Support Specialist who assists students and families. The South Kitsap NAANE Parent Advisory Committee, staffed by parent volunteers, is engaged in promoting our programs and planning a variety of activities for students and their families throughout the year.


The NAANE after school tutoring program will be available soon to all students that have a Title VI 506 Student Eligibility Certification form on file with the district. Tutoring will take place after school on days agreed upon by the parent and tutoring volunteer(s). Each student qualifies for two hours of tutoring per week until our funds are exhausted. Tutoring is provided by paraeducators that work in the school district. Tutoring request forms will be available once the program is finalized for the 2022/2023 school year. If you are interested in enrolling your child in the tutoring program or have questions, please contact Support Specialist Matthew Haver. If your child does not currently have a Title VI 506 Student Eligibility Certification Form on file it can be downloaded from the link below.
