AP Information for School Personnel
Advanced Placement courses are college-level courses offered by trained high school teachers in the regular high school setting. In 2008-09 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 Becky Chambers, Program Manager for AP at the GaDOE, at 404-463-5098 or firstname.lastname@example.org Schools needing information on use of AP courses as a Gifted Service Model may contact Annette Eger, Gifted Specialist for GaDOE, at email@example.com.
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. If you do not have a copy of the manual, contact the Southern Regional Office of The College Board at 770-225-4050.
AP Audit/Authorized Syllabi
Principals must ensure that the syllabus for each AP teacher in the school is authorized by The College Board, or students will not be able to receive college credit based on successful AP exam scores. To authorize a syllabus, the principal 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 Mr. Bill Heron at the Southern Regional Office of The College Board at 770-225-4005.
AP teachers, high school principals, counselors, and AP coordinators should take advantage of the APCentral website. This resource has a wealth of information about AP courses and many layers of resources for AP teachers. firstname.lastname@example.org
