Two A+ College Ready Schools on a National Honor Roll
The College Board announced its third annual Advanced Placement “District of the Year” awards last week, and four Alabama school districts were among the winners.
Two systems in the A+ College Ready program – Elmore County and Montgomery County public school systems – were listed on the honor roll, along with the Archdiocese of Mobile and Autauga County.
Montgomery was further recognized as an Honor Roll district that has 30% or greater enrollment of American Indians, African American and Hispanic/Latino students.
The honor roll consists of an unprecedented 539 U.S. public school districts that achieved increases in access to AP courses to a broader number of students while maintaining or improving the rate at which their AP students earned scores of 3 or higher on an AP exam.
