(2) Collaborate with programs and agencies in the local community in order to expand after-school and summer civics education opportunities;
(3) Monitor and report the level of penetration of civics education in school and out-of-school programs;
(4) Ensure that underserved students including rural, low-income, immigrant, and refugee students are prioritized in the implementation of programs;

(6) Provide an annual report on the demonstration sites by December 1st each year to the governor and the committees of the legislature with oversight over K-12 education.
