District Protocol for Advanced Placement Examinations:
The Roslyn Public Schools believe that an Advanced Placement exam is a culminating experience which follows a year of college-level work in an AP class which has College Board approval for both its curriculum and instructor. Therefore, we will only register students for AP exams for which they have been enrolled in a corresponding AP course at Roslyn High School.
This practice of requiring students to complete a year of college-level work in a College Board certified course of study before Roslyn will administer an Advanced Placement exam has been in place for more than 25 years. Exceptions are extremely rare and have been approved only when truly extenuating circumstances exist; exceptions are NOT granted simply because a student has taken an exam preparation course outside of the District. Only the College Board may approve a school, its instructors, and its programs of study and, should an outside school meet these standards, it would be in a position to administer the AP examination.
