Advanced Placement Program (AP)

Updates for AP programs and testing for the 2019-2020 school year.
 
AP students need to check with their teachers regarding important changes made regarding learning and exams for this school year, 2019-2020. Go to your CollegeBoard account for detailed information on the changes. And check back often because you are aware at how quickly things could change.

Advanced Placement Policies, Expectations, and Guidelines

  • All students enrolled in an AP course are required to take the CollegeBoard Exam and/or the final evaluation (e.g. AP Drawing portfolio submission).  Exams are administered at Kaiser High near the end of the school year.
  • Fees for each AP Exam are usually collected in January/February of the testing year.  Fee reductions for students who qualify may be available, but are not guaranteed.  Fee for 2020 is $94.
  • Failure to take the exam will result in the student being graded on a regular 4-point (not the 5-point weighted) scale, AND the class being listed as a regular (non-AP) course on the student’s official transcript.
