College Station ISD was recently one of 447 school districts in the U.S. and Canada and one of only 28 districts in Texas to be honored by the College Board with placement on the eighth-annual AP® District Honor Roll.
It marks the fourth year in a row for CSISD to receive this honor.
CSISD was selected for increasing access to Advanced Placement (AP) coursework while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams. Reaching these goals indicates that the district is successfully identifying and preparing motivated, academically-prepared students who are ready for the opportunity of AP.
College Station ISD is committed to expanding the availability of AP courses among prepared and motivated students of all backgrounds.
In 2017, more than 4,000 colleges and universities around the world received AP scores for college credit, advanced placement, and/or consideration in the admission process.
Inclusion on the AP District Honor Roll is based on the examination of three years of AP data, from 2015 to 2017, looking across 37 AP Exams, including world language and culture. The following criteria were used.
- Increase 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;
- Increase or maintain the percentage of exams taken by African American, Hispanic/Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Native students; and
- Improve or maintain 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.
