Advanced Placement Students Earn Rewards
(by Don Meador, Allen County Schools, August 7, 2019)    

   Students who committed themselves to rigorous class work last year have received their reward. The Allen County-Scottsville High School (AC-SHS) announced Wednesday that 46 students---current students and 2019 graduates---obtained at least one qualifying score on the College Board’s Advance Placement (AP) exams given last year, thus earning college credit and a $75 cash reward per course. The list includes 30 returning students who were recognized as part of Opening Day activities at the high school. 

   In partnership with the AdvanceKentucky initiative, teachers received training and supplies so that AP class opportunities are available to AC-SHS students. The program is designed to dramatically expand access to and participation in rigorous college-level work in high school, particularly among student populations traditionally underrepresented in these courses.

  Toward the end of classes last spring, AP students in 13 subject areas took the College Board’s AP Exam.  Scores are reflected on a five-point scale. A score of five is “extremely well qualified.”  A four score in “well qualified” with a three score being considered “qualified.” Students scoring a three or higher on the exam are qualified to receive college credit for their work or advanced placement in college classes.

   Two students---Ella Burch and Jason Sikes---earned qualifying scores in four subject areas. Giovanni Dell Valle, Samuel Dell Valle, and Jackson Montgomery qualified in three areas. Rachel Bomar, Allison Byrn, Taylor Carter, Katherine Foster, Oliver Harwood, Taylor Huff, Tyler Hunt, Abigail Stamps, Mason Towery and Kayden Whitney posted qualifying scores in two classes.   

   Achieving qualifying scores in AP Biology were students Ella Burch, Allison Byrn, Rachel Foster, Jennifer Owen, and Madison Whittle. In AP Calculus, Jason Sikes recorded a qualifying score. For AP Chemistry, earning qualifying scores were Rachel Bomar, Jackson Montgomery, and Mason Towery.
