What is the goal of AP4ALL with Advanced Placement classes?
We will bring AP courses to schools that have not historically offered them, increase the equity of AP course enrollment across all schools, and provide necessary supports to make courses available to English language learners and students with disabilities. There will be rigorous training for new and continuing AP teachers, as well as pre-AP support to build student and teacher readiness. We will support school leaders in identifying students who are ready for AP coursework and in programming those students to address equity gaps.
For many schools, size is a barrier in offering AP courses. AP for All may support collaboration and course sharing between co-located schools.
New York City’s AP4ALL program has been active for a couple of years and this will continue into next school year. There will be new AP courses and increased enrollment in existing courses at targeted high schools that offer few or no AP courses currently and demonstrate readiness to begin offering additional AP coursework. These schools will also receive rigorous, subject-specific training for new and continuing AP teachers. Pre-AP support to strengthen student and teacher readiness will also begin at targeted high schools this fall.
