Area School Boards Weigh in on AP Classes
Published June 24th, 2013
FLORIDA- School boards throughout Florida are concerned that a legislative bill allowing students to take as many courses as they can handle will cost millions of dollars that school districts can’t support.
Alachua County has a track record for success that is hard to match when it comes to students taking costly AP tests.
Alachua County School Board Spokesperson, Jackie Johnson says, “We spend about three-hundred dollars a year but we get back about 1.7 million just last year, for our successfully passed AP tests so it’s great return.”
Pinellas County Superintendent Michael Grego said the bill will cost between 40 and 60 million dollars a year.
