Certified Nursing Assistant Training for Roger's High School Students

Students learn to provide basic routine nursing related services to individuals in various healthcare settings. For class dates and times and registration information, please click HERE.
Senior Project: Senior project should be something you take pride in – this is your chance to leave your legacy with a memorable project. Senior Project or a comparable product is a requirement of RIDE and, therefore, must bear some weight in the graduation process. One-half credit (0.5) value will be entered on the transcript upon completion of all components and is obligatory if a student is to be awarded a district diploma. Each component is scored and has a due date attributed to it. This process will be monitored and scored by the Senior Project Coordinator. The Senior Project will consist of college/career components and community service. All students are required to complete a resume, essay, letter of intent, thank you letter and final presentation. In addition students must complete 15 hours of community service or a job shadowing/internship that coincides with their senior project topics. For more information, please click HERE to access the materials.
Staffed by RHS certified teachers, the Academic Lab program provides participating RHS students with multiple and varied opportunities to receive academic support. Teachers break students into content areas to work with them on daily homework, common assessment tasks and/or quarterly benchmark assessments, and graduation portfolio/project development. The program is designed to maximize student access to academic support services.
Extended Learning Opportunities
During Extended Learning Opportunities (ELO), students learn in-part, or in-whole, outside of the classroom through rigorous, relevant and personalized instruction. ELOs are student driven and assess the student’s mastery of course competencies through demonstration. ELO’s align with school curriculum. The opportunity is rigorous and grounded in frequent assessment of student progress and growth. Through ELOs students are able to earn credit to be used towards graduation.
Extended Learning Opportunities include four components: research, reflection, product, and presentation.
Examples of ELO projects:
- Design and create a children’s book
- Write a legal brief
- Hold a sports clinic
- Design Underwater Robot
- Create a photography portfolio
- Learn about cyber security and compete in CyberPatriot competitions
