Charter school students between grades seven and twelve may participate in RRPS extracurricular activities sanctioned by NMAA, though they may not enroll in non-activity-related courses (i.e. electives or core classes).

Eligible charter school students intending to participate in NMAA-sanctioned extracurricular activities are required to complete the RRPS New student online registration process each school year.

This opportunity is based on the New Mexico state statute below:

22-8C-8. Charter school student participation in public school extracurricular activities.

A.  The New Mexico activities association and the local school board in the school district in which a charter school is located shall allow charter school students in grades seven through twelve to participate in school district extracurricular activities sanctioned by the New Mexico activities association if they meet eligibility requirements other than enrollment in a particular public school and if the charter school does not offer such activities sanctioned by the New Mexico activities association or any other association.

B.  A charter school student otherwise eligible to participate in an extracurricular activity shall participate in the public school in the attendance zone in which the student lives, provided, however, that the student may choose only one public school in which to participate
