Cooperation with Colville Confederated Tribes

Inchelium School District No. 70 cooperates with the Colville Confederated Tribes concerning Attendance Ordinance, Colville Tribal Code 5-3, which encourages every student to attend school and to behave appropriately, so that they may excel in achieving to their fullest potential. To achieve these goals, the Colville Confederated Tribes understands that the student needs a safe and nurturing environment in which to learn in both a school and home environment and requires juveniles who are 6 to 17 years of age to attend school. Tribal Code 5-3 provides a means for the Colville Confederated Tribes to directly intervene in cases where students are failing to attend school and/or having behavioral problems in an educational setting. When these means are not successful, the Colville Confederated Tribes may prosecute these cases in Colville Tribal Court.
