Civics is the study of the duties, rights and responsibilities of citizenship

We are going to learn about how our government works, how it came to be, important pieces of American history, how we participate in our political process, and so much more!

End of Course Exam

Civics is a subject that has a standardized, state mandated test. This test is cumulative and we will be working all year to learn the information needed for this exam. Our Civics end of course exam, or EOC will be in May 2020. This test is similar to the FSA, but the score is factored into students overall Civics grade.
