Advanced Placement Information
Bixby AP Students and Parents, The College Board, creators of Advanced Placement, recently announced significant changes to the AP exam ordering process, deadlines, late fees, and cancellation fees that will be mandated for all schools and all students in the 2019-2020 school year. Next year, all students will decide whether or not to take exams and order their exams by Nov. 15, 2019. All students in AP classes who register after Nov. 15, 2019, will be assessed a $40.00/exam late fee. In addition, a $40.00/exam cancellation fee will be assessed for any exam order canceled after Nov. 15, 2019. You can view the timeline in detail at https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/about-ap/news-changes/ap-2019/for-ap-coordinators, under Fall Exam Ordering Overview.
It is important that all families are aware of these looming changes, especially as students begin registering for their 2019-2020 courses. We understand that these changes may cause concern for students, parents, and teachers. Please keep in mind that these changes are being mandated by the College Board and were not decided by Bixby Schools.
Additional details regarding the College Board’s new process will be made available once we have more information. Please see Adria Wood, AAdvanced Placement Coordinator. with any questions. She can be reached at 918) 366-2222 or email@example.com
If you are graduating or moving this summer, you must return your Chromebook to the 9GC library or the HS library as soon as you’ve completed finals. You need to return your device AND the charge cord. If you have one of our loaner devices because your device is being repaired, the loaners must be turned in after finals. Mrs. Wilkinson will notify you over the summer when your device is repaired in case you would like to pick it up. Otherwise, it will be redistributed to you in August.
All other students, you will keep your Chromebook for the summer. Please bring it to a full charge periodically and power it on so that it can receive automatic updates. If your device breaks over the summer, you may send Mrs. Wilkinson a message via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you are taking summer school classes, you will be provided a loaner device.
Seniors- Your school Google Gmail and Drive accounts will be deleted over the summer. You may use Google Takeout to archive and save any materials from your Drive. Visit takeout.google.com for more information.
Contact Mrs. Wilkinson with any questions!
