The Blueprint for Maryland’s Future law also requires students who meet the Maryland State Department of Education College and Career Readiness (CCR) standard in both English and mathematics to have free access to AP testing.
Students and parents can access the HCPSS Connect system (http://www.hcpss.org/connect/ Standardized Test Scores Tab) to review the scores for the English and mathematics exams. Fees will automatically not be charged to students who meet both the English and mathematics standard. SAT data will continue to be added as students assess during the year.
Below are the CCR standards:
- English Requirement: Earned a Performance Level 2 or 3 on the Early Fall 2021 English 10 exam or a 3 or 4 on the Spring 2022, Winter 2022/23 or Spring 2023 English 10 exam.
- Math Requirement: Earned a Performance Level 2 or 3 on the Early Fall 2021 MCAP Algebra I, Geometry, or Algebra II exam, 3 or 4 on the Spring 2022, Winter 2022/23, or Spring 2023 MCAP Algebra I, Geometry, or Algebra II exam, earned 4 or 5 on the PARCC Algebra 1, Geometry, or Algebra II exam, or earned a minimum score of 520 on the math section of the SAT.
Payments for AP exams are due by 11/10/23. Exams that are not paid for will not be ordered. Payment can be made online by paying the invoices sent through My School Bucks, or by check made out to Howard High School. Check payments MUST be dropped off on designated dates that will be located on my canvas page as well through Howard Messenger to Students and Parents.
Exams are $98 each this year.
Registration for an exam or cancellation of an exam after 11/11/23 will incur a late fee of $40 per exam. Please keep this in mind when making your exam choices.
