NEW - American Civics Act Exam - Graduation Requirement
In the spring of 2015, the Arizona legislature passed the American Civics Act (House Bill 2064). This bill will require students, beginning with the graduating class of 2017, to pass a civics test based on the United States Immigration and Naturalization civics questions. Students are required to score 60% or higher in order to graduate from high school or obtain a high school equivalency certificate. As a courtesy, the Arizona Department of Education, with help from the Maricopa County Education Service Agency and Arizona educators, has developed a mostly multiple choice version of the required test.

2017-2018 Civics Exam Testing Dates
Testing will occur in the Global Academy Testing Center from 9 am - 12:00 pm on the following dates:
December 6, 2017
December 13, 2017
February 7, 2018
February 14, 2018
March 21, 2018

You MUST RSVP for your Civics Exam at least 14 days prior to the exam date.  To RSVP, send an email to GAOnline@gilbertschools.net.
