Marysville Joint Unified School District American Indian Education Program
The Marysville Joint Unified School District American Indian Education Program serves more than 1,100 Native students; represented by 79 different tribes in the Yuba-Sutter Bi-County area. The majority of our students are of Cherokee, Choctaw, or Maidu descent. Our Indian Education Program is designed to help Indian students in Kindergarten through 12th grade to improve their attendance, academic skills, and increase their knowledge and awareness of their cultural values and traditions. We also focus on building and sustaining strong partnerships with The Tulalip Tribes. The Marysville School District Indian Education Department and The Tulalip Tribes Education Department have joined forces to provide extra support to all Native American students. Our Native American Liaisons and The Tulalip Tribes School Advocates, work side by side together at our schools.
The Marysville Joint Unified School District American Indian Education Program hosts many events in support of their program goals, such as the Yuba-Sutter Winter Pow Wow in Marysville and the Yuba-Sutter Pow Wow in Yuba City each year. They also work with the Tulalip Tribe to offer the annual Tulalip Tribes and Marysville School District Indian Education Christmas Powwow in December.
