What are the program commitments?

In the Pre-AP Course Audit, Pre-AP course administrators and teachers are required to attest to curricular, resource, and implementation requirements. To earn the designation for a course, you must agree to these four requirements:

  1. Pre-AP for All: Pre-AP frameworks and assessments must serve as the foundation for all sections of the course at the school.
    • Note: Course Audit administrators may request a deferment for the Pre-AP for All requirement through Course Audit. To do so, they must first refrain from establishing any entry barriers (e.g., minimum test scores, previous grades, or teacher recommendation) that could hinder students’ participation in the Pre-AP course. Additionally, they must commit to developing a plan to expand Pre-AP access at their school over time. Please see the Pre-AP for All Planning Guide for additional information.
  2. Course Frameworks: Teachers must align classroom instruction to the course frameworks.
  3. Assessments: Teachers must administer at least one learning checkpoint per unit, and four performance tasks.
  4. Professional Learning: Teachers and at least one leader per site must complete a Pre-AP Summer Institute or the Online Foundational Module Series. Teachers also complete at least one Online Scoring Module. 

Teachers and leaders should also review the curricular and resource requirements in the Pre-AP course guide to ensure that they are met.
