The Tennessee Department of Education (TDOE) is developing a new initiative to expand virtual access to Advanced Placement college credit courses not offered in much of the state’s brick-and-mortar high schools, according to a news release last week from the department.

State officials say the program, AP Access for All, will be funded through a $10 million grant to help cover free AP courses for about 5,000 students, with much of the emphasis being placed on encouraging the state’s underserved and rural students to enroll. The program will cover costs such as AP exam fees, textbooks and curriculum resources, as well as requisite aspects of virtual instruction such as learning management systems and Internet connectivity.
