“Our AP teachers and students have worked hard and are deserving of this recognition for their efforts,” said Steve Payne, the school system’s supervisor of English, Reading and Title I. “This coming year we hope to renew a focus on engaging the families of those students who have traditionally been underrepresented in AP classes despite demonstrating potential for doing well in advanced coursework as evidenced by PSAT scores. The challenge is to keep our rigorous standards while making the curriculum accessible to all students who need an intellectual challenge.”
