What’s different about Pre-AP implementation in the 2020-21 school year?

Based on the feedback of Partner Schools, we’ve modified the course requirements for Pre-AP.

You’re no longer required to:

  • Use the Pre-AP model lessons
  • Submit a planning document
  • Administer all quizzes (you’re required to administer one quiz (or learning checkpoint) per unit)
  • Administer the final exam
  • Administer the PSAT/NMSQT

You’ll be required to complete the Course Audit process. To earn the designation for a course, you must agree to these four requirements:

  • Pre-AP for All: All students enrolled in on-level courses participate in Pre-AP.
    • Course Audit administrators may request a deferment for the Pre-AP for All requirement through the Course Audit, so long as they commit to developing a plan to expand Pre-AP access at their school.
  • Course Frameworks: Teachers align classroom instruction to the course frameworks
  • Assessments: Teachers administer at least one learning checkpoint per unit, and 4 performance tasks
  • Professional Learning: Teachers and at least one administrator per site complete a Pre-AP Summer Institute, either in person or online. Teachers complete at least one online scoring module.

How is the ordering process different for the 2020-21 school year?

The ordering process will be different for the 2020-21 school year. You’ll be emailed an order form, which will honor your current pricing for the Pre-AP courses you’re currently implementing. All teachers for currently offered Pre-AP Courses will receive new teacher resources, as there have been updates to these documents.

Any newly ordered courses will be purchased at the national price of $3,000 per course, with any standard discounts applied. Teacher resources for newly ordered courses will be provided at a 1:120 teacher/student ratio at no charge.

After placing your order, Pre-AP coordinators will need to complete the Participation Form.

It’s important to place your order early, as the in-kind seats for the Pre-AP Summer Institute are limited.
