Announcement: Changes to AP test registration process

Nold

We are slowly but surely moving into the 21st Century with AP Registration.  This year, students will register for their AP Exams online.  I have attached the form mailed to all parents/students this week that details the registration process.  It is important to note that although students register for their AP exams online, they will still come to the College/Career Room in the Guidance Office to pay for their exams.  After registering online, the student will print the confirmation form with payment (check/money orders only…no cash) to finalize registration.

 

Online Registration opens 12 AM, Saturday, Feb 18, 2012 and closes 3 PM, Friday, Feb 24, 2012.  Students must bring in their confirmation form with payment by 3 PM, Friday, Feb 24.  Any registrations/payments after this date/time will incur an additional $20 late fee.  No payments/registrations will be taken after 3 PM, Wednesday, Feb 29, 2012.  Teachers may also want to take your students to the computer lab to give them intentional time during the school day to complete this quick, easy online Registration.  This should not take more than 15 minutes (max).  This way, the teacher is more in the “know” of who has registered and who has not.  This tool also gives the teacher the ability to look online to see which students per block have registered by pulling up rosters per block.  I will get more information to AP teachers about this capability as we approach this event.  As the AP coordinator, this program will allow me to gather student/parent data in a timely, more accurate manner, and better communicate with students, parents, and teachers during and after the registration process.

AP Pre-Administration Sessions—remember this is a mandatory session for each student who plans to take an AP exam.  Every student prior to AP testing must complete this information.  If there is one student in an AP exam site who has not completed the Pre-Administration session, it penalizes the entire testing group.  The entire testing group will have to go through this section of the AP exam because of this one student, adding an additional hour to an already stressful and lengthy exam experience.

 

AP Pre-Administration Sessions:

Monday, April 16, 2012

1st block:  9th grade (Auditorium)

4th block:  10th grade (Auditorium)

 

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

1st block:  11th grade (Auditorium)

4th block:  12th grade (Auditorium)

 

A letter was mailed home to 10th and 11th grade students/parents (with the AP Registration information attached) regarding potential AP courses to consider for next year based on their PSAT score.  The letter explains that there are other considerations to keep in mind before signing up for an AP course. However, solely based on the PSAT score, the student showed potential in particular academic areas that he/she might consider taking at the AP level next year.
