Description and Goals

The Choctaw Tribal School’s parent involvement programs are designed to serve parents and students in the six Choctaw communities. Each center's staff strives to enhance learning through a wide variety of materials and learning strategies that promote learning opportunities for all ages. The Centers provide educational enrichment for Tribal students in six elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school. The schools are located within a seventy-mile radius of the Office of Tribal Government.

Parental involvement programs include the following:

  • Title I Parent Center & The Community/School Education Center
  • Parent & Family Engagement Board 
  • Mobile Education Resource Center
  • Bogue Homa Education Resource Center
  • Crystal Ridge Education Resource Center 

Goals of the Centers are to bring home, school and the community closer together, to encourage parents to be teachers of their children, and to help ensure that Choctaw children retain their unique cultural heritage.
