Allen ISD Named To AP District Honor Roll

The Allen Independent School District has been named to the AP® District Honor Roll to recognize districts across the U.S. and Canada for increasing AP access to underrepresented students while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning AP exam scores of 3 or higher.

AP District Honor Roll recipients are committed to expanding the availability of AP courses among prepared and motivated students of all backgrounds. National data from 2016 show that approximately 50 percent of underrepresented students with a high degree of readiness for AP are participating in the program.

Inclusion on the 7th Annual AP District Honor Roll is based on the examination of three years of AP data, from 2014 to 2016, for the following criteria:

  •         Increased participation/access to AP by at least 4 percent in large districts, at least 6 percent in medium districts, and at least 11 percent in small districts;
  •         Increased or maintained the percentage of exams taken by African American, Hispanic/Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Native students who scored 3+ on at least one AP Exam; and
  •         Improved performance levels when comparing the percentage of students in 2016 scoring a 3 or higher to those in 2014, unless the district has already attained a performance level at which more than 70 percent of its AP students are scoring a 3 or higher.
