Pre-AP Coordinator Responsibilities

As the Pre-AP coordinator, you have responsibilities related to Pre-AP Course Audit. It is critical to complete these steps before teachers complete their required professional learning, as they will not have access to Pre-AP Classroom until all steps have been completed.

  1. With your school leadership, determine who the Course Audit administrator will be. This is usually the principal or principal’s designee and may be the Pre-AP coordinator. It is important for this person to be available during the summer months, as the Course Audit process must be completed before access to Pre-AP Classroom is provided. This person is responsible for finalizing Pre-AP Course Audit forms, renewing authorizations annually, and checking the Pre-AP Course Ledger each academic year to make sure it accurately lists their school’s Pre-AP course offerings.
  2. You must inform new Pre-AP teachers of record (including co-teachers) to complete the Course Audit process.

Completing Course Audit

While the Pre-AP coordinator is not responsible for completing the steps of the Course Audit process, it will be helpful for you to understand that process in case the Course Audit administrator or teachers have questions.
