Citizenship Civics Test Preparation

 

We have added a new class for students who want to prepare for the civics test portion of the citizenship test.  The class will be a hybrid class, students will work on the modules independently and then meet with the teacher at the end of each module.  The material is online so students will need access to the internet/technology.  Students can work on a computer in our classroom or work from home.  Students need to be at an ELL Level 5 to participate.
