Remarks Concerning Rough Rock Demonstration School.
Platero, Dillon
Rough Rock Demonstration School, noted for innovative programs and community control and participation in operations, has encouraged other Indian communities to establish educational institutions and to form organizations interested in education. Rough Rock continues to expand its facilities and innovative programs. Secondary grades are being added 1 grade per year until the first seniors graduate in June of 1974. An Office of Economic Opportunity grant will be used to construct homes for teachers in various camps in the area so that employees of the school will participate in community life and so that local citizens will realize the potential of upgrading their living facilities. Classroom aides are participating in a Career Opportunities Program and are working toward becoming teachers. Plans are under way for a continuing evaluation of the school designed to assist learning rather than to point up failures. A nursery school, kindergarten, and child-care center have recently been established. An environmental sciences laboratory was recently completed. (JH)
