Article X of the Montana Constitution guarantees an equitable education for all students. Montana was the first state that constitutionally obligates educational systems to include American Indians in their educational goals. The definition of a quality education approved by the Montana legislature determined that integration of content providing information about Montana American Indians was vital to a quality education. Indian Education for All (IEFA) is the law. Columbia Falls School District Six supports IEFA through the integration of standards throughout the curriculum.
