ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP) COURSES
It is the school’s responsibility to ensure that students meet all prerequisite requirements for an Advanced Placement course. Schools will also provide students with textbooks and any supplementary resources needed for these courses. School administrators and/or counselors should make students aware of their option to take AP exams, inform them of available AP exam review materials, notify them of the date for the administration of each exam, and order and administer the exams in accordance with College Board policy.
