AP Updates for Schools Impacted by Coronavirus
Advanced Placement courses are college-level courses offered by trained high school teachers in the regular high school setting. Since 2008, over one-third of the seniors in Georgia public high schools were enrolled in AP courses. AP courses guarantee rigor in our classrooms. To learn more about offering AP courses in your high school, contact Gail Humble, Program Manager for AP at the GaDOE, at 404-463-5098 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
One-Day Regional AP Workshops
Each fall, the College
Readiness and Talent Development Team at the Georgia Department of Education
offers professional development for new Advanced Placement teachers. To support
our teachers across the state, five Advanced Placement One-Day Regional
Workshops will be offered in fall 2019. Each workshop session will be led by a
highly successful Georgia high school AP teacher.
Workshops are designed to
support teachers who have 0-3 years of AP teaching experience; however, any AP
teacher who feels a need for additional support and resources is welcome to
register. Please contact your school or district AP Coordinator for registration
information or Martha Smith at email@example.com or Alison Coker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
New AP Coordinators
New AP Coordinators in GA high schools need to carefully study the AP Coordinator’s Manual for guidance regarding the AP Course Audit process and the process for ordering and administering AP exams. For additional AP Coordinator resources, visit the AP Coordinator page of the College Board website at https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/ap-coordinators.
AP Audit/Authorized Syllabi
Principals must ensure that the syllabus for each AP teacher in the school is authorized by The College Board through the audit process. The audit process ensures each course meets specific academic/AP standards. After a course is authorized through the audit, it will appear in the AP Course Ledger, the official list of all AP courses.
To authorize a syllabus, the principal (or designee) must access the AP Audit registration site and enter the teacher’s name and then work with the teacher to get the syllabus submitted for approval. Principals that have questions about the Audit process may contact Ms. Brandi Saab at the Southern Regional Office of The College Board at 770-225-4041.
Georgia AP Teacher Network
This is a contact list of Georgia AP Teachers by course who have signed up in order to share information, resources, and/ or seek solutions or assistance. This network list is also used to notify AP teachers of upcoming workshops, webinars, and other opportunities from GaDOE or College Board. If you would like to join this network, please complete the form located here: Georgia AP Teacher Network.
Building a Quality AP Program
AP Potential is a powerful free tool schools may use to identify potential AP students. AP Potential utilizes data from the PSAT to help match students in your school who could be successful in specific AP courses. For assistance, contact Alison Coker at email@example.com or Martha Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
