Rough Rock Community School Board, Inc.
The Rough Rock AmeriCorps Program situated on the Navajo Nation in the state of Arizona will provide service to the local Rough Rock Community School District and the Rough Rock, AZ residents through an Education Focus for K-12 students, providing community service for local elders via their Elder-Watch program and extended community service to other individuals on a need basis. The activities of the program will be carried out by 25 corps members and the program year will commence on July 1, 2012 and run through the year and end June 30, 2013. All members that are brought aboard the program will be placed within the Rough Rock Community School District (RRCS). The RRCS is a Grant School that is apart of the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) schools. The program has been a constant fixture in the Rough Rock, AZ community since 1999. We are also currently the only AmeriCorps Program that is functioning on the Navajo Indian Reservation. Additional assistance will be provided to outside nearby communities on a need basis throughout the service year. At times that assistance will stretch areas of up to 60 miles away from Rough Rock, AZ.
