Parent & Student Surveys - Fall 2021 Feedback

The Navajo Nation Department of Diné Education (DODE) is providing another opportunity to hear from our educational stakeholders on the topic of school reopening and the perceptions of school learning for fall 2021. All responses help to guide the imperative decisions needed within the educational arena. Any questions, please contact  by email Andy Nez, senior education specialist with the Office of Research and Statistics.

We developed the parent/guardian and student survey to capture information on personal preference/choice for fall 2021 classroom format, including additional queries on the quality of education at this point. All input will guide imperative educational decisions moving forward.

The pre-k to 12 student survey was also developed to capture personal preference/option for fall 2021 classroom format, including additional queries related to their experience at this point. All feedback will also guide imperative educational decisions moving forward.

The window for this survey will be open starting April 28, 2021, to May 14, 2021.

Assignments and Wi-Fi

A reminder that you must complete your schoolwork in Google Classroom to earn a grade for the semester. We do not grade the Google Attendance Classroom, and we only use it for checking in. You must do your class assignments to get a passing grade for each class. 

There are internet Wi-Fi locations on the high school campus (north parking lot) and the main campus (field house parking lot). You can sit in your vehicle and access the Wi-Fi to complete your schoolwork. Campuses are open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on weekdays.

Students and parents can access school grade and attendance information in FamilyLink. Please contact Leola Thompson to set up your account or for help with passwords.

If a student is having trouble with the internet or logging into class, please call the school for assistance and to report attendance for the day.

Office staff, registrar, counselors, and principals are on-site to assist you. While we do not allow non-school personnel in the building, you may call the school for assistance or to speak with any of these individuals. The number to call is (928) 755-1500.

New Student Information System

Next school year we will be using a new student information system. The new system will make it easier for you to access more information about your child. However, for you to use this new system, we must have a good email address for you. Please share with us your email address by contacting your child’s school. If you don’t have an email address, many companies will let you create a free email account. This new system will also help us save money by allowing us to stop sending you information through the mail. We will be able to use that money to provide a better education for your child. Also, we will be able to free up teacher and staff time so they can better help your child with their needs. Thank you for helping us get ready for this new student information system.

Staff Availiability

While we are not allowing non-school personnel in the building, our office staff, registrar, counselors, and principals are on-site to assist you. You may call the school for assistance or to speak with any of these individuals. The number to call is (928) 755-1500. 

Phone Calls Home

The school frequently sends out messages by phone. Please take the time to answer these important calls or to return phone calls to teachers or staff. We appreciate your help and understanding.
