CCAE Central Follow Up

This is a follow-up to some of the questions asked at CCAE Central ESL, ABE, and Civics Breakout Group.  f I missed anything or if you have further questions, please contact me at jgagliardi@musd.orgThank you, Visalia, for your warm hospitality!

NOTE the Oct 17-18 2023 NIICE: National Immigrant Integration & Citizenship Education Conference and the Nov 1 Naturalization Test Overview focused on naturalizing LPRs. 

  • The Nov 1 webinar focused on eligibility and clearly delineated the components of the Naturalization interview that CBOs need.  At the end of the Nov 1 webinar, there was a comment from a USCIS officer that the Naturalization Test Redesign Pilot has been put on hold.

USCIS Naturalization Statistics

USCIS LPRs Eligible to Naturalize Factsheets: 
  • TESOL Policy Recommendations for the 118th Congress 
    • Google slides--make a copy and modify it for your Congress person or school board meeting.  Most of the text was taken directly from the TESOL Advocacy Center.  USCIS LPR stats are used on slide 19 and 20.  Note: recently, Senator Padilla has committed to introduce and co-sponsor the SPELL Act.
