Students Prep for AP Exam Changes
April 24, 2020
Because of Covid-19, this year’s AP Exams will be taken at home, and the exam format will be simplified.

Traditional face-to-face Advanced Placement (AP) exam administrations will be replaced by online free-responses exams at home.
For fairness to others, the 45-minute AP exam will only include topics and skills most AP teachers and students have already covered in class by early March.
College Board is providing free remote learning resources which started being available Mar. 25.

Many teachers and counselors have been very helpful by sending emails to update the students on how the AP exams will be conducted.
Families with outstanding balances for AP exams may pay through the MySchoolBucks accounts for the district.
Families will be emailed an invoice for the amount due.
Students can pay by credit card, which is the preferred method; however, if one needs to pay by check or cash, one will need to print the invoice and submit it along with payment to the district administration building.
Students will be able to take these exams on any device they have access to – computer, tablet, or smartphone; taking a photo of handwritten work will also be an option.
CollegeBoard is doing everything in their power to make everything accessible and fair for everyone, recognizing that the digital divide could prevent some low income and rural students from participating.
