Dual Credit: Planning ahead because of COVID-19
  • Students taking a dual credit course on campus with Mr. Gardner or Ms. Range will continue to participate in class discussions and assignments via canvas and email. 
  • Online dual credit courses will continue to be online.  You've got this!!
  • Students taking a CTE course that required contact hours off campus, such as Fire Science, Cosmetology, will want to check your email regularly from your professors.  In addition, we are all waiting to hear from The Higher Education Board as to their response to your required contact hours.  We do not know if/when/how the required contact hours will be addressed.
  • Students NEW to dual credit and are planning to take a dual credit course in the Fall, I will start making contacts with those of you who have already requested a course and we are looking into options for those of you who still need to earn college ready scores via TSI. While I will be reaching out to you, please do not hesitate to reach out to me with questions or concerns. 
AP Students:
Students taking an AP course will want to stay in contact with their teacher and will want to continue to study using their accounts. 
Update from College Board about AP Exams:

"March 20, 2020

As schools and communities navigate the unprecedented challenges posed by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the health and safety of educators and students are the AP Program’s top priorities. Here’s how we’re supporting schools:

Through our members across the country, we understand the new time constraints on everyone in the education community. These solutions are meant to be as simple and lightweight as possible for both students and teachers — without creating additional burdens for school leaders during this time.

  • Traditional face-to-face exam administrations will not take place. Students will take a 45-minute online free-response exam at home. 
  • Some students may want to take the exam sooner rather than later, while the content is still fresh. Other students may want more time to practice. For each AP subject, there will be 2 different testing dates.

The full exam schedule, specific free-response question types that will be on each AP Exam, and additional testing details will be available by April 3. We'll also unlock any relevant free-response questions in AP Classroom for digital use so students can access all practice questions of the type that will appear on the exam.

About This Year’s AP Exams

Students remain eager to take AP Exams and to have a chance to earn credit and placement. We surveyed 18,000 AP students and 91% indicated they want to complete this important step, urging us not to cancel this opportunity they have been working toward.

We’ll continue to support students with free resources through exam day. And while we encourage students to wait until closer to the test date to decide, any student already registered for an exam can choose to cancel at no charge.

The AP Program will invest heavily over the next month in the following ways:

  • For the 2019–20 exam administration only, students can take a 45-minute online free-response exam at home. Educator-led development committees are currently selecting the exam questions that will be administered.
  • AP curricula are locally developed and we defer to local decisions on how best to help students complete coursework. To be fair to all students, some of whom have lost more instructional time than others, the exam will only include topics and skills most AP teachers and students have already covered in class by early March.
  • Colleges support this solution and are committed to ensuring that AP students receive the credit they have worked this year to earn. For decades, colleges have accepted a shortened AP Exam for college credit when groups of students have experienced emergencies.
  • Students will be able to take these streamlined exams on any device they have access to—computer, tablet, or smartphone. Taking a photo of handwritten work will also be an option.
  • We recognize that the digital divide could prevent some low-income and rural students from participating. Working with partners, we will invest so that these students have the tools and connectivity they need to review AP content online and take the exam. If your students need mobile tools or connectivity, you can reach out to us directly to let us know. "
