    North Dakota Initiatives

    The North Dakota Studies Project is committed to providing curriculum resources to teach civics and citizenship education in the schools of the state.

    The 2005, 2007, and 2009 North Dakota Legislative Assemblies have authorized and funded a number of important initiatives that support and promote citizenship education statewide.

    The legislature has appropriated funds to the North Dakota Studies Project “for the purpose of revitalizing civic education” in North Dakota schools.

    These civics and citizenship education initiatives are aligned to North Dakota’s Content and Achievement Standards for Social Studies. The following standard and associated benchmark expectations apply to these grade levels.
