Dear Parents/Guardians of AP students,
This is a reminder that AP exams will begin on Monday, May 1st and will continue until Thursday, May 11th. If your child is currently enrolled in an AP course, he/she will be scheduled to take one or more exams during that time.
Preadministration Sessions: In order to save time on exam day, schools often hold preadministration sessions before the exam weeks to allow students to complete registration/identification information in advance. This process takes approximately 30-45 minutes. We will be holding preadministration sessions for 11th and 12th graders after-school in the high school cafeteria (from 1:50 – 2:40 pm) on the following days (students can attend either day):
- Juniors: Monday April 24th & Tuesday April 25th
- Seniors: Wednesday April 26th & Thursday April 27th
Note: All 10th grade AP World History students will be completing their preadministration session in their classroom during the school day.
Testing days: AP students are expected to report to the exam room (high school library) at the specified times listed below and should bring with them all required materials: pen, pencils, calculators, etc. The College Board has strict regulations for all AP testing. Please make sure that your child is on time, prepared, and aware of all testing requirements. Students are encouraged to speak to their AP teacher if they have further questions.
In addition to this letter, a copy of the AP exam schedule can be found on the PVHS website under “Announcements” (http://pvcsd.org/HS/resources/pdf/2017APExamScheduleforWebsite.pdf) and/or the College Board website.
All AP exams will be administered in the high school library. Late arrivals WILL NOT be allowed to enter the exam rooms once the test begins. No exceptions will be made. Students should arrive to the high school by 7:15 am each day for morning exams and by 11:15 am for afternoon exams.
Additionally, please leave all electronic devices and cell phones at home or in a secure location. Students will be asked if they have any electronic devices with them before the exam begins and will be asked to hand them in to the proctor to ensure secure testing requirements.
While we encourage your child to attend their regularly scheduled classes before and after AP exams, should you choose to allow your child to leave early or arrive late to school on exams days, a parental note MUST BE provided ahead of time for attendance purposes.
Thank you for your cooperation. We wish all students the best of luck on their upcoming exams.
