Navajo I- NAVJ101- A dual credit course offering 3 college credits and 1 high school credit

Our first Native language course is off to a great start!  On January 17, 2017, RRHS held its first language class on campus with an enrollment of 20 students. The course introduces Navajo speech forms, metalinguistic skills, the Navajo alphabet, vocabulary and the grammatical structure of simple and complex sentences. Class is held twice a week with the instruction of M. Chiquito.   

For more information on the Navajo DC course, please email  constance.pahona@rrps.net or contact the counselor of your student.  

General Dual Credit Info


Each student is allowed no more than two Dual Credit Courses during their four years of high school to count on their transcript, unless they are part of the UNM West/RRPS “Early College Cohort” or CNM CTE programs, which requires students to submit an application to participate with parent approval.  The cohorts consist of:  the returning 2016-17 cohort,   and the  2017-2018 cohort which could consist of another 30 students (15 from each school)

It is imperative that students understand that if they do not obtain approval to take a course by counselor and administration using the district Dual Credit Course Authorization Form, they will not receive credit and their book(s) will not be paid for by RRPS.

Students may decide on their own to take more than two courses at CNM or UNM, but they will not be given high school credit and students will be responsible for the cost of books and tuition.

As of this semester, we have expended all funding provided by the PED for the purchase of college textbooks due to the efforts we have taken to expand opportunities for students.  Because of this, RRPS will no longer cover the cost of books for the 2017 summer session.
