MONTGOMERY — Some high school seniors from 13 schools will get a preview of Gov. Bob Riley’s State of the State address.

Using the ACCESS Distance Learning program, Riley’s preview will be delivered on Monday at 10 a.m. at the Alabama Department of Archives and History.

Students will have a chance to question Riley.

ACCESS stands for Alabama Connecting Classrooms, Educators and Students Statewide. The governor’s office says every high school in the state will have ACCESS by the beginning of the 2009-2010 school year.

Riley’s actual State of the State address will be delivered to a joint session of the Legislature at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Old House Chamber of the State Capitol.
