Dear Parent/Guardian of an Advanced Placement Student,

The expectation is that all students who take an AP course will take the AP exam in May. In order for an Advanced Placement (AP) student to be exempted from an AP course’s final exam, the student must take the AP exam in that course. Furthermore, the understanding is that the student will thoroughly prepare for and actively engage in taking the AP test.

If the student is not actively engaged in taking the AP exam and becomes a distraction to other test-takers; for example, if the student falls asleep during the AP test, the following will happen in accordance with the College Board’s AP test regulations:

The test administrator will take the test from the student.

The student will be sent back to class.

AP Services will be notified to cancel the student’s score on that AP test.

The student will take the final examination in that AP course.

Additionally, students agree to comply with test-day terms and conditions outlined in College Board’s “Bulletin for AP Students and Parents.”

Winston Churchill High School’s staff is committed to providing a high-quality AP program to its students. We thank you ahead of time for your support of the AP program in this endeavor to ensure the best effort on the part of our AP students and to an AP test-taking environment that is as free of distractions as possible.

Sincerely,

Dr. Joan C. Benz Principal

My AP student and I have read this letter and understand the expectations for an AP test taker.

AP EXAMS

 

Advanced Placement (AP) exams will be administered at Churchill May 3-14, 2010, according to the schedule established by College Board. A qualifying score on an AP exam may give a student college credit or advanced standing in the subject in many colleges; in addition, the College Board recognizes students for outstanding performance on the AP exams through the National AP Scholar Awards. The College Board designated fee for each exam is $86.00; financial assistance is available to students with established need. Parents should contact their student’s counselor to request financial assistance. Registration fees for the May AP testing will be accepted in the Churchill College/Career Center March 8-March 19, 2010. A late fee of $39 per exam will be charged for any registration submitted after the March 19 deadline. If an exam is cancelled after registration, a partial refund of $50 per exam will be issued by check in June.

Students who are registered for Advanced Placement courses are expected to take the AP exam (as stated in the Churchill Parent/Student Handbook). Registration forms will be distributed to students through their AP classes during the week of March 8. Registration forms will also be available on the Churchill website beginning March 8.
