Longview School District’s growth in Advanced Placement course participation–while maintaining or improving high exam scores–has earned the district placement on the 8th Annual AP CollegeBoard Honor Roll.
The district is one of only 447 in the US and Canada to receive this recognition. (As a reference point, there are approximately 13,500 school districts in the United States alone.)
To earn this prestigious award, a school district needed to:
– Increase participation/access to AP (Advanced Placement) by at least 4 percent in large districts, at least 6 percent in medium districts, and at least 11 percent in small districts.
– Increase or maintain the percentage of exams taken by African American, Hispanic/Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Native students.
– Improve performance levels when comparing the percentage of students in 2017 scoring a 3 or higher to those in 2015, 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.
In Washington, Arlington, Everett, Lake Washington, Shoreline and Walla Walla were also among the eight districts included on the honor roll.
