Update from College Board Regarding 2020 AP Testing:

That’s why we launched free, teacher-led AP courses and review sessions in late March and have moved AP exams online so students can take them at home. The 45-minute online exams will be given from May 11–22 with make-up tests available from June 1–5. 


We’ve created a new website that has critical information and resources for AP studentsteachers, and coordinators, including a brand new AP Testing Guide that was released yesterday. And, we’ve been engaging directly with each of these groups to ensure they have what they need to successfully complete the school year.


To help you continue the conversation with your local community, I’ve included some additional resources for you. We hope these solutions are received in the spirit they were created, and we look to you on how best to share these opportunities with your community. If there are other ways that we can continue to offer support, please do call on us. We’re here to help.


Technology Request:

The AP program allows high school students to take college level courses and exams in high school.

- Students that pass exam can earn college credit 
- Students can skip introductory level courses in college which could save tuition costs
- Earning credit or placement can free up time in a student's college schedule for other courses and interests
- AP on a high school transcript shows colleges/universities that your student is ready for the rigor of college course work
