American Indian Parent Advisory Committee/Local Indian Education Committee

The AIPAC/LIEC is comprised of a group of caregivers such as: parents, grandparents, and guardians of American Indian children. Our AIPAC/LIEC also includes 2-3 elder representatives from the community, and one teacher representative from each CLB School Building. The committee meets monthly over the course of the school year including a meeting in August and June. The committee serves as a crucial communication link between our American Indian Community and the Cass Lake-Bena School District.

The AIPAC/LIEC meets on the first Thursday of each month. Here are the meeting dates for this school year:


  • Wednesday September 14, 2022

  • Wednesday October 12, 2022

During the 2021-2022 pandemic time, the AIPAC/LIEC meetings were held virtually. At our November 2022 AIPAC/LIEC, the committee voted to offer a virtual option for the monthly meetings. At our January 2023 meeting, the AIPAC/LIEC voted to change the meeting dates to the first Thursday of each month.
