Approximately 100 local families receive direct services from the DNIEC. The center has developed a network of services that focuses on the needs of families and children to encourage both scholastic and personal attainment. These services are center-based and fulfill the need to have a central location designed to provide access to educational services, academic resources, and social service referrals. Advocacy is provided to families for meetings with school officials or for other related needs.In addition, the Indian Education Center provides a suitable meeting and conference room for students, parents and the community. Students are served as a cooperative effort between local Tribes, the School District, and the Johnson O'Malley and Title IX Indian Education Programs.
