Dear ACCESS AP Colleagues,
AP has changed for the 2019-2020 school year! To support student success, the exam registration and ordering has moved to the fall. The registration deadline is November 15, 2019, with a late registration fee of $40. College Board has also introduced new AP resources for teaching and learning. It is imperative that students, parents, teachers, facilitators, and coordinators are aware of the new registration deadlines and the resources that are now available.
The shift in registration gives students an opportunity to commit early to taking the AP Exam, which is likely to keep student more engaged in the AP course. The increased engagement has shown to increase the chance of earning a score of 3 or higher on exams.
- The new resources provide focused content, greater efficiency, and more flexibility to help students succeed in the classroom and reduce the administrative burden on schools.
- A Simple 5-minute digital activation process completed by AP teachers and students at the beginning of the year.
- New classroom resources, including unit guides and personal progress checks, and
- Streamlined ordering processes, including personalized registration labels for students that eliminate the need for lengthy pre-registration bubbling sessions.
Thank you for all that you do to serve our virtual AP learners. Please do not hesitate to contact our office, if you have any questions or concerns.
