MADISON — State Superintendent Tony Evers made the following statement after signing a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa covering current and future work to improve educational outcomes for students.

“This agreement demonstrates our shared commitment to the kids of the Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa. Our MOU is one of the first of its kind between a state education agency and one of our state’s federally recognized American Indian nations and tribal communities. Making sure we have the relationships and formal systems in place puts us in a better position to serve our students. I want to thank President Joseph Wildcat Sr. and the members of his tribal community for working with us.”

NOTE: A copy of the Memorandum of Understanding and Mutual Support by and between the Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction can be found online.
