College Board Training
All NYS certified 7-12 teachers currently working for BPS are encouraged to attend College Board training for AP certification.
BPS teachers who are selected to teach AP courses must submit a suggested syllabus to the District for approval before submitting a final syllabus to the College Board as part of the AP Audit process.
In order to establish a strong AP program at the high school level, BPS also works closely with the College Board to strengthen the vertical alignment of curricula and methodology.
