Every section is paced out for both a one-semester course (Aug- Dec) or a year-long course (Aug-May).  Counselors will let the students know which pace the student should follow.  Pacing guides and due dates on the home screen of the course when students log in.
  • For an A.P. course to be awarded the 5 additional rigor points a student must sit for the AP Exam. If weighting is applied to a course before the exam date and then the exam is not taken, districts must have a system in place for removing those points. See Uniform Grading Policy for more information
  • For an AP to be considered an EPSO for Ready Graduate credit, a student must sit for the test.
  • For a list of AP courses and high school graduation requirement substitutions see Graduation Requirement Substitutions
  • College Board has stated that all exams will return to traditional paper and pencil administrations. These pencil/paper exams will be administered by the local high schools or an approved testing center.  College Board will evaluate the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, digital administration from past tests, and feedback from districts to reassess as the school year progresses.
