  • Nome Public Schools Parent Advisory Council Meeting


    If you are a parent or grandparent of an Alaska Native student attending Nome Public Schools, or if you are a parent of a migrant-eligible student, you are invited to attend an open meeting and presentation on Tuesday, May 30th at 6pm in the Nome Elementary School Library.  We also specifically invite representatives from the Nome Eskimo Community and King Island Native Community leadership, as well as Alaska Native or migrant students attending Nome Beltz High School (grades 9-11).  This is a mandatory meeting on the part of Nome Public Schools according to state and Federal law.


    The purpose of the meeting is to provide information for parents, students and community members on the district’s Indian Education (Title VI) and Johnson O’Malley grants, as well as the Migrant Education Program, and seeks recommendations and suggestions for the district to plan utilization of these funds for the 17-18 school year and beyond.  We will be actively seeking parents, high school students and NEC/KINC leadership to serve on the Parent Advisory Counci for the 17-18 school year, which will involve acting as liaisons with their respective communities to bring concerns and suggestions to the attention of NPS district leadership, and attending three meetings during the school year.


    If you have any questions, please email Jamie Burgess at or call at 907-443-6197.
