For Parent/Guardians:
Definitions:
Indian means an individual who is (1) A member of an Indian Tribe or Band, as membership is defined by the
Indian Tribe or Band, including any Tribe or Band terminated since 1940, and any Tribe or Band recognized by the
State in which the Tribe or Band resides; (2) A descendant of a parent or grandparent who meets the requirements
described in paragraph (1) of this definition; (3) Considered by the Secretary of the Interior to be an Indian for any
purpose; (4) An Eskimo, Aleut, or other Alaska Native; or (5) A member of an organized Indian group that received
a grant under the Indian Education Act of 1988 as it was in effect on October 19, 1994.
Student Information: Write the name of the child, date of birth, grade level, name of school and school district.
Only name one child per form.
Tribal Membership: Write the name of the individual with the tribal membership, if it is not the child listed. Only
one name is needed for this section, even though multiple persons may have tribal membership. Select only one
identifier: the child, child’s parent or grandparent, for whom you can provide membership information.
Write the name and address of the organization that maintains updated and accurate membership data for such Tribe
or Band of Indians. The name does not need to be the official name as it appears exactly on the Department of
Interior’s list of federally recognized Tribes, but the name must be recognizable and be of sufficient detail to permit
verification of the eligibility of the Tribe. Check only one box indicated whether it is a Federally Recognized, State
Recognized, Terminated Tribe or Organized Indian Group. Write the enrollment number establishing the
membership for the child, parent or grandparent, if readily available, or other evidence of membership.
Attestation Statement: Provide the printed name of parent/guardian and signature, address, phone number and
email of the parent or guardian of the child. The signature of the parent or guardian of the child verifies the accuracy
of the information supplied.

respond to a collection of information unless such collection displays a valid OMB control number. The valid OMB
