The summer before their first year implementing a Pre-AP course, at least one leader from each school site is required to participate in professional learning offered by the College Board. Because of the covid-19 pandemic, the in-person Pre-AP Summer Institutes and Leadership Workshops have been canceled for the summer of 2020. Any school purchasing Pre-AP for the 2020-21 academic year will receive their in-kind seats for in-person Pre-AP Summer Institutes to use in the summer of 2021, in preparation for the 2021-22 academic year.

Professional Learning offerings for summer 2020 (in preparation for the 2020-21 academic year):
As part of the program requirements, at least one site leader must complete the Online Leadership Workshop.
New Pre-AP leaders will have the option to join free Virtual Leadership Cohorts, which extend learning from the on-demand Online Leadership Workshop. These live virtual sessions provide an opportunity for support leaders to further understand the instructional design and program requirements of Pre-AP.

Professional Learning offerings for summer 2021 (in preparation for the 2021-22 academic year):
The Pre-AP Leadership Workshop is designed to acclimate leaders to the instructional design and program requirements of Pre-AP. At least one leader (administrator or Pre-AP Coordinator) from each Pre-AP school must attend this workshop, which is available either in person on Day 4 of the Pre-AP Summer Institutes or  online.
