NM Recognized Among States for NCLB Waiver
The U.S. Department of Education (USDOE) recognized New Mexico, along with only six other states, for implementing key reforms as part of a waiver from the federal No Child Left Behind Act. Currently, 43 states possess similar waivers; however, New Mexico is among only seven who are considered to be “on track” for the commitments made to improve student achievement through reform. This designation will allow the New Mexico Public Education Department (PED) to apply earlier for an extension of the waiver...much sooner than other states. Read the full story here....

RRPS Seeks Parent Input on Textbook Adoption

Every six years, the state of New Mexico and local school districts review textbooks and other instructional materials in order to adopt updated materials for use in classrooms. This year we will be adopting instructional materials for grades 9-12 English Language Arts, World Languages, and high school reading intervention to support our implementation of the Common Core State Standards. Interested in helping on an Adoption Committee? We'll have monthly meetings November through March. Click here for details.

Mission: Rio Rancho Public Schools is dedicated to graduating each student with an educational foundation for success as a responsible, ethical contributor to society.
