Navajo language program first to meet standards

The Farmington School District in New Mexico is the first district in the state and in the U.S. to have a Native language program to meet state standards.

Students from kindergarten to grade 12 follow the Dine Bilingual Language Culture and History Curriculum. The guide focuses on Navajo history, government, fundamental philosophy and parent involvement.

The district says it is sharing its curriculum with other schools.
