ND Civics Initiative
The ND Civics Test House Bill 1087 is simple in concept. It requires high school students, as a condition for graduation, to pass a test on 100 basic facts of U.S. history and civics, from the United States Citizenship Civics Test – the test all new US citizens must pass.
The Civics Education Initiative is a first step to ensure all students are taught basic civics about how our government works, and who we are as a nation --- things every student must learn to be ready for active, engaged citizenship. You can take the test at any time after enrolling in grade seven and may repeat the test as often as necessary to demonstrate proficiency.
