Advanced Placement (AP)

Published: 6/20/2015 9:12 AM

 

The Advanced Placement (AP*) Program is governed by the College Board. There are over 30 college-level courses available, most of which are offered in our local Kentucky high schools. Students take an end-of course exam and, based on their numerical score, may be awarded college credit for the course.

AP/IP Exam Fee Update

For several years, the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) has been able to provide funding to pay for AP and IB exam fees for low-income students, allowing these students to take exams free of charge. This was made possible through a generous grant from the United States Department of Education (USDOE). This year, however, USDOE has informed all state agencies that there will most likely NOT be sufficient funding for these exam fees. This is still in discussion at a federal level (given the conversations regarding the fiscal cliff) and we will probably not know how much funding, if any, will be awarded for the grant until March or April. Local schools and districts should be prepared to assist low-income students, as much as possible, in paying for AP/IB exams.
