The Pre-AP Program requires at least one leader per site—and each teacher of a Pre-AP course—complete professional learning. The designated leader may be anyone supporting Pre-AP implementation at the school or district and can include a Pre-AP coordinator, Pre-AP administrator, instructional coach, or any non-teaching instructional support role.
There are two ways to fulfill the new Pre-AP leader’s requirement:
Online, by completing the Online Foundational Leadership Workshop
The Online Foundational Leadership Workshop is available for free on Pre-AP Classroom. Created to help leaders understand the instructional design and program requirements of Pre-AP, these modules can be completed in 4–6 hours.

Optional Additional Learning for New Leaders
New Pre-AP leaders also have the option to join a New Leader Virtual Cohort, which extends learning from the Online Foundational Leadership Workshop. These live, online classes provide an opportunity for leaders to collaborate with peers across the country. Leaders meet with their cohort for two 90-minute classes over the course of two weeks, with each cohort having a maximum of 20 participants. CEUs are granted upon completion.
