Advanced Placement and Pre-Advanced Agreement 2019-2020 AISD (English)
Description
AP Courses are of college level; students who earn a score of 3 or higher on the corresponding AP exam may earn college credit. Pre-AP courses are designed to prepare students for success in AP courses. Students are required to read and write extensively outside of class. Parents and students must carefully consider course requirements in light of student readiness, commitment, and personal schedule. Grading, late work, retesting, and reteaching will follow the current campus *grading guidelines. It is an EXPECTATION that the student will take the AP test at the end of an AP course. While College Board imposes a minimum test fee of $94 per exam, Alvin ISD absorbs much of this cost, and students only pay a $30 fee per test for each exam that is ordered by the College Board deadline (waiver available for free/reduced lunch). Students who register to take an AP exam after the College Board deadline, or do not take the exam, are subject to late registration fees and/or a test return fee for EACH exam. Fees are imposed by College Board, not AISD. Fee amounts are subject to change per College Board, and free/reduced lunch waivers do NOT apply to fees.

Course Changes
Students who enroll in Pre-AP/AP classes commit to completing the course. Students requesting a course change will have from the beginning of the 7th week until the end of the 9th week to complete the course change request process. This process entails multiple steps, including a form signed by the teacher, Advanced Academics Specialist, parent/guardian, and counselor. Proof of tutoring and/or other interventions or support measures are also required in order to request a course change. Course changes may not be official until AFTER the end of the first nine week grading period. Course changes will only be made based on educational need, per campus administration.

To initiate a change out of a Pre-AP/AP class, a conference must occur between the student, the parent/guardian, the teacher, and the principal or designee to determine educational need. Changes will be made only if it is deemed educationally necessary and if space is available in the course. A non-credited course such as an open period or office aid will not be considered. Should the committee not agree that the change is based on the best educational need of the student, he or she will be required to complete the course selected. If the student transfers to another course, the student’s grade (without weighting), will transfer to the new class.
