In 2018, Governor Tom Wolf signed into law Act 35 of2018 (Appendix A) which requires that all school
entities administer a locally developed assessment of U.S. history, government, and civics at least once to
students during grades 7-12, beginning with the 2020-2021 school year.
A-C Valley's Civics course satisfies the required elements of Act 35 and aligns with State Academic
Standards for Civics and Government, Economics, Geography, and History. Information regarding ACT
35 can be found at: Act 35-PACivics
Students at A-C Valley who successfully complete the Civics course and the assessment will receive the
certificate below in recognition of their accomplishment.
