About the Program

At the end of April 2009, the state superintendent of public instruction and a team from the Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) met with the Joint Business Council of the Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone Tribes to develop the Wyoming Tribal Children’s Triad initiative. The purpose of the Triad is to build partnerships between school districts, community programs and governments. The partnerships focus on overcoming challenges and developing community based solutions to dilemmas facing Native American students in Wyoming. The first goals of the Triad initiative were improving daily school attendance, ensuring 100% of Native American school aged children were enrolled in school and enhance citizenship/decrease discipline of students in school.
