This final report describes completion of the RAISE (Reaching American Indian Special/Elementary Educators) program and how the goals and objectives presented in the original proposal were met from September 1, 1998, through June 30, 2002. The project was designed to prepare Navajo and non-Navajo students to earn dual certification in special education and elementary education, teach in impoverished rural and remote areas, and work in inclusive school models with culturally and linguistically diverse populations. The report provides: (1) a brief review of the project goals and objectives; (2) a summary of the completion of the project activities, September 1, 1998, through June 30, 2002; and (3) a final budget report. The project resulted in seven students, including two Navajo paraprofessionals, being recruited and admitted to the Teacher Education Project in the Center for Excellence in Education at Northern Arizona University. All 7 students have successfully completed the 3-semester cycle of course work, a total of 46 competency-based courses. An additional seven students are completing their final semester of required elementary education courses. (CR)
