Lieutenant Governor Evelyn Sanguinetti is launching a pilot program to give high school students in rural areas more acess to advanced placement courses. 75 students from 10 rural high schools around the state will participate in the one semester pilot program. Lt. Governor Evelyn Sanguinetti says many AP classes aren’t offered in smaller districts. But, under this program, the student will be able to take a course online.
Sanguinetti says AP classes are vital since a good grade on the AP exam is worth college credit which will save families on tuition costs.
