District named to AP honor roll

Dublin City Schools was last week named to the AP District Honor Roll by the College Board.

The district was one of 477 in the U.S. and Canada to be named to the honor roll for increasing access to AP courses and increasing the number of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP exams.

"We are extremely proud of this achievement," Superintendent Todd Hoadley said in a news release from the district.

"For the 12th largest district in Ohio to be able to increase the number of students who take AP exams while also increasing the scores, is a remarkable achievement."

The AP Honor Roll looks at data from 2011 to 2013.

To be eligible for the honor, the district must increase participation and access to AP course by 4 to 11 percent depending on the size of the district, increase or maintain the number of exams take by minority students and improve performance level between 2011 and 2013 in AP test scores.

As part of a college readiness effort, the district has been working to increase AP courses for students.

Dublin City Schools students took the most AP exams in the state during the 2011-12 school year, the release said.

According to information from the district, since 2011 Dublin City Schools increased the number of students taking AP courses by 8 percent. The number of students who earned a score of 3 or higher on AP exams increased by 1 percent.
