Indian Education Planning Meeting


With the school year underway, I would like to invite you to attend a planning meeting for the Big Lake American Indian Education plan.  The virtual meeting will be held Tuesday, October 20, from 6:30-7:30.

The focus of this meeting will be to discuss options for supporting student achievement for your children with the American Indian Education grant funding provided by the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE). This year, BLS will have $27,160 to support student achievement for American Indian students attending BLS.

Each year, MDE requires BLS to submit a plan collaboratively developed by parents. Your participation will identify programming to support the academic success of your child(ren).

To receive a virtual invitation to the planning meeting, please email me directly at Please call me at 763-262-5105 with any questions.

Looking forward to hearing from you and collaborating to identify supports to meet your child(ren)’s academic needs.



David Bernard, Ed.D

Executive Director of Teaching and Learning
