Port Byron CSD Named to AP District Honor Roll
To help ring in 2019, we thought we’d share some exciting news: the Port Byron Central School District was recently named to the College Board’s 9th Annual Advanced Placement (AP) District Honor Roll!
Port Byron was one of 373 districts across the United States and Canada to be named to the list. Successful completion of AP classes (and their subsequent exams) enable students to transfer college credit into a university upon admission.
To receive this distinction, the district had to (since 2016) increase the number of students participating in AP courses, while also increasing (or maintaining) the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of “3” or higher at the completion of those courses.
“Reaching these goals shows that this district is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for AP,” per the College Board.
“Success in Advanced Placement is a combination of students’ own motivation and the opportunities educators provide for them,” said Trevor Packer, senior vice president of AP and Instruction at the College Board. “I’m inspired by the teachers and administrators in this district who have worked to clear a path for more students of all backgrounds to earn college credit during high school.”
Congratulations to Port Byron CSD’s administration, faculty, staff, and the community for helping identify and prepare these students for Advanced Placement courses, and for helping the district receive this honor!
