It's never too soon to start planning for AP testing. The 2018 Exam Schedule can be located here. And guess what? The new AP Program Guide is now available to download! And the AP Coordinator's Manual will be available very soon. There are also tutorials for AP coordinators from College Board that you can access for free. In addition to these resources, we will be providing webinars with details on the whole remittance process, so watch our webpage for details.
And the ultimate question that I know you have - will the SDE provide test fee assistance this year as in past years? Test fee assistance for low income students is our first priority for use of AP funds from the legislature. So we are planning on the same degree of assistance as was offered last school year. That means that qualifying students, based on federal and College Board income guidelines, will have a portion of their test fee paid by the SDE. Students who do not qualify on the basis of financial need, but who take more than one exam, will have also have a portion paid by the SDE. As is the case every year, we will confirm the final amounts as soon as we are sure of the amount of state funding. - Oklahoma Advanced Placement Incentive Program
