On Saturday, January 28, 2017, the AESD Family Engagement Center, with the support of TODEC Legal Center, hosted a free Naturalization / Citizenship workshop to assist parents in completing and submitting the application to become U.S. citizens. The workshop was held at Columbia Middle School. The response from the community was overwhelming! A line of parents formed hours before the doors opened for the event. Over 150 parents attended and more than 90 applicants were able to submit their applications successfully. With such a great response from the community, Adelanto Elementary School District will host another workshop in the near future.
As a follow up to this event, the AESD Family Engagement Center has Citizenship classes scheduled for 10 Wednesdays starting on February 8 and ending on April 19. This 10 session Citizenship class is designed to teach participants the necessary information to help them pass the citizenship test and interview process. Classes will be held from 5:30 – 7:00 pm each Wednesday at Columbia Middle School.
