The American Civics Act (Arizona House Bill 2064), which was signed by Governor Doug Ducey in February, requires high school students to pass a citizenship test. 

The class of 2017 will be the first group of students required to prove subject matter proficiency in American history and government before they can graduate.

Here's a link to a similar test, courtesy of the History Channel. Test your knowledge about U.S. history, civics and government as we celebrate Constitution Week at Rio Salado-- and share this resource with Valley teens to help them prepare for the test!

Check out this related East Valley Tribune story about a group of Kyrene eighth-graders who chose to put their knowledge to the test in commemoration of Constitution Day, Sept. 17.
