Principal Bulletin

All schools wishing to label a course “AP” must submit the subject-specific AP Course Audit form and the course syllabus for each teacher of that AP course.  The deadline for submission is January 31, 2015. Schools which offer AP classes must identify an AP Audit Administrator. Administrator authorization is a required aspect of the audit process. Authorization to use the “AP” designation for your course indicates College Board permission to use the designation on students’ transcripts, in your school’s course catalog, and/or on your school’s website. The course will be listed as an authorized AP course in a ledger available to colleges and universities each fall and made available to the public via the Web.

The AP Course Audit Calendar highlights important dates and information to ensure that during the 2014-15 school year, the AP courses offered in your school are authorized to use the AP designation.

Requirements for the 2014-15 New and Redesigned Courses:
Due to the implementation of AP Physics 1, AP Physics 2, and the redesigned AP U.S. History courses, all teachers of these subjects will need to submit a new syllabus and Course Audit form regardless of prior authorization. Resources to support syllabus development are accessible from the AP Course Audit Teacher Resources page.
