Springboro on AP Honor Roll

Springboro is one of only 477 districts across the United States and Canada named to the AP® (Advanced Placement) Honor Roll. Yolandé Berger, Advanced Placement Coordinator for the Ohio Department of Education, presented Springboro Schools with a certificate commemorating this honor at the Board of Education meeting this week.

The Board recognized the following high school teachers who have taught AP® courses over the last two years: Michele Roberts, Lindsay Sav, Donna Griffith, Mike Holweger, Gail Dauber, Jack Hanson, Mary Loose, Trish Vulgamore, Chris Rowe, Bill Fox, Laura Houston, Rory Korzan, Julie Crace, Mari Kay Miller, Deb Tuck and Robert Ogan.

The College Board announced the 4th Annual AP® District Honor Roll to recognize school districts that increase access to AP® course work while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of three or higher on AP® Exams. Reaching these goals indicates that these districts are successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are likely to benefit from rigorous AP® course work. Only 37 districts in Ohio achieved this honor.

Inclusion on the 4th Annual AP® District Honor Roll is based on the examination of three years of data, from 2011 to 2013, for the following criteria.
• Increased participation/access to AP® by at least four percent in large districts, at least six percent in medium districts, and at least 11 percent in small districts;
• Increased or maintained the percentage of exams taken by African American, Hispanic/Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Native students, and;
• Improved performance levels when comparing the percentage of students in 2013 scoring a three or higher to those in 2011, unless the district has already attained a performance level at which more than 70 percent of its AP® students are scoring a three or higher.
