The RCHS Student Handbook was prepared by the teaching, counseling, and administrative staff of Red Canyon High School to assist students and parents with the enrollment process. This Educational Planning Guide includes the RCHS mission, dual-credit educational opportunities at Colorado Mountain College, comprehensive course offerings, and information about measurable standards for individual courses offered at Red Canyon High School. Course descriptions are arranged by subject; a description of each class explains the content. The courses listed in this handbook are tentative offerings. A course can only be offered if there is sufficient student enrollment, and many of the courses are only offered as needed or on a rotating basis. Course offerings, and the number of times a course is offered each school year, are determined by the number of students that register for that class and the demonstrated need for the course according to credits that students need to earn.
The teachers, counselors, and administrative staff at Red Canyon High School are prepared to assist students in selecting a schedule geared to meet each student’s needs and interests. Before class selections are made for the following year, we recommend that both students and parents carefully read the information contained in this booklet. Special attention should be given to the requirements for graduation. It is our goal to meet the educational needs of all students and to provide them with a rigorous and comprehensive academic program. If we can assist you in any way with the process, please contact your student’s crew leader, counselor, or the building principal.
