- College Board announced that they will offer AP exams to students this school year.
- For the 2019–20 exam administration only, students will take a 45-minute online exam at home. Information to all AP changes can be found on the College Board website at https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/coronavirus-updates.
- Beginning on Wednesday, March 25, students can attend free, live AP review courses, delivered by AP teachers from across the country. Access to these live classes on the AP YouTube Channel can be found at https://www.youtube.com/user/advancedplacement. A complete schedule of the “virtual classrooms” is available on the College Board AP student website. Lessons will be recorded so that students can watch at a later time.
- The full exam schedule, specific free-response question types that will be on each AP Exam, and additional testing details will be available from College Board by April 3. Once College Board provides districts with details to these changes, FBISD will communicate this information to all stakeholders.
- College Board has announced that students may choose not to take the exam at no charge to the student. However, no student decisions have to be made at this time. They encourage students to use the College Board resources before making any decisions.
Advanced Placement Exams will be given May 4- May 15, 2020 for current 9th-12th graders. For the complete testing schedule, please visit the College Board Advanced Placement testing schedule at College Board Advanced Placement Exam Schedule.
