Tribal Consultation

ESSA requires states to engage in Meaningful Consultation with Tribes in the development of the state’s plan to meet the needs of Native American students. ESSA promotes tribal self-determination in the education of Native American students by authorizing coordination and collaboration of tribal stakeholders with state education agencies (SEAs) to meet the unique culturally related academic needs of our Native American students. North Dakota ESSA Tribal Consultation meetings are continuously being held to foster collaboration.
