The NM Standards Based Assessment / High School Graduation Assessment is the primary means of demonstrating competency in Reading, Math, and Science. Students demonstrate competency in Social studies and Writing through state and/or district approved End of Course assessments. Alternate methods of demonstrating competency are also available. The requirements and options available vary by cohort year. Comprehensive information regarding the state requirements are located at: lity/AssessmentEvaluation/2013/Graduation Checklist.Final.11.16.13.pdf. ** Two world language credits are recommended for college admission. Two world language credits (in the same language) are required for admission to most four-year colleges and universities, including UNM. Students must complete 1 credit in one of these areas as a requirement for graduation: World Language, Career Cluster or Workplace Readiness. *** Students must earn one credit of the following as a graduation requirement: AP (Advanced Placement) course credit or a dual enrollment course credit or a distance-learning course credit. AP Course Credit – AP classes prepare a student to qualify for college. Students are encouraged to take an AP examination in the spring. Each test costs approximately $91. Some students may qualify for a reduced fee. Many colleges award credit for courses based on AP examination scores. Dual Enrollment Course Credit – 1-2 college credit hours = 0.5 RRHS elective credit. 3-4 college credit hours = 1.0 RRHS elective credit RRHS has dual enrollment agreements with Central New Mexico Community College (CNM), UNM, UNM West, and Southwest Indian Polytechnic Institute (SIPI) that allow students to enroll in college courses with a tuition waiver. Students earn high school elective credit by passing the college course. Students may not use a dual enrollment course to meet a RRHS graduation requirement other than for elective credit. Distance Learning Credit – Students must request prior approval from their counselor for distance learning course credit and must complete a “Course Agreement” form signed by the student, parent and counselor. Students must have a full schedule to take a distance learning course. On-line courses are available at the SLC (Secondary Learning Center), at the Rio Rancho Cyber Academy, and through Central New Mexico Community College (CNM). Distance learning course credits must be earned from schools accredited by the North Central Association. RRHS will not accept correspondence credit for physical education or lab science courses. Rio Rancho High School must receive an official transcript for the course to meet graduation credit requirements. Academic Focus – All students are required to be enrolled in a minimum of four courses per semester that include English, Social Studies, Math, and Science. This requirement is independent of whether or not the student has earned the necessary credits needed for graduation. All students must be enrolled in these four core classes every semester they are in attendance at RRHS. Late arrival is not permitted. 5

Rio Rancho Public Schools Diplomas In an effort to maintain high expectations for all students, to encourage students to take rigorous coursework, and to allow time in the high school schedule for credit recovery, two differentiated diplomas are available to RRHS and CHS students: a Standard Diploma and a Diploma of Distinction. The Standard Diploma requires that students earn 26 credit, including an additional science credit beyond that of the State’s 24 credit model. The RRPS Standard Diploma surpasses the graduation requirements of APS comprehensive high schools. It is one of the most rigorous in the state.
