Advanced Placement Course and AP Exam Endorsement


ItemDescription
Policy TitleAdvanced Placement Course and AP Exam Endorsement
Policy CategoryTesting (TEST)
Policy IDTEST-008
Policy Date1998-05-07

Formerly GCS-A-008


The State Board of Education strongly endorses that all students enrolled in Advanced Placement courses take the corresponding Advanced Placement exams.  This policy shall be communicated to all school superintendents.  Superintendents shall annually notify all principals of this policy.

 

Advantages:

The State Board of Education will exert its leadership but not add another mandate to high schools.

Personnel working closely with students may be able to more adequately determine whether certain students should be required to take the exams.

The potential for having a non-funded mandate minimized.

 

Disadvantages:

An endorsement may have little effect on increasing the number of students taking Advanced Placement exams.
