The AEAC was established, under court order, in 1985 by the DPS Board of Education. AEAC seeks to improve educational opportunities and to provide quality education for all students, particularly students of Asian/Pacific Island (AA/PI) heritage. Learn more on the AEAC website or Facebook page.
Native Hawaiian Student Inclusion in Native American Culture and Education
Native Hawaiian students are part of the indigenous community in the United States. The Native American Culture and Education (NACE) team is reaching out to find our Native Hawaiian students who may be interested in accessing programs and support — for example, NACE can help advocate for students, navigate the DPS system to help students access resources such as tutoring and food and clothes assistance. Students can also access more scholarship funding if they are part of the Native Hawaiian Registry program. If you are a Native Hawaiian student or family interested in the NACE program, please contact Rose McGuire at Rose_McGuire@dpsk12.org.
