All school campuses in the Walnut Valley Unified School District, including DBHS, will be closed through the remainder of the 2019-20 school year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are transitioning to online instruction.

AP Exam Changes For Next Year

I wanted to take this opportunity to advise you all of some changes instituted by College Board for our Advanced Placement testing starting next school year (2019-2020).  We have a new order deadline of October 4th.  What this means for our students is that they will order and pay for their AP testing in the beginning of the school year. 

 

As a result of this change, I have already posted our fee reduction forms on the web site.  To be eligible for a fee reduction and pay only $10.00 per AP test, you must qualify for free and reduced lunch.  This process is done annually at the district office.  You can print the application and turn it into nutrition services. It takes approximately 3 weeks for processing to occur so please submit your paperwork in enough time to meet the AP office deadline of 9/20/19. 

 

During your student's first week of school, the teachers will have the students set up/log in to their College Board account and register as a student of each AP class they are taking.  Then the students will have to check yes or no on the College Board web site and decide if they will be taking the exam (for classes they are enrolled in at DBHS only).  I have already posted the AP test payment schedule online beginning 9/23/19 through 10/4/19.  We will place our order on 10/4/19. 

 

Another change is the cost of a canceled test.  Should your student cancel a test, the College Board fee, beginning in the 2019-2020 year, will be $45.00.  This does not apply for students having a conflict and needing to take an alternate exam. 

 

Should you have any questions please check out the DBHS AP Web pagehttps://dbhs.wvusd.k12.ca.us/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=64575&type=d&pREC_ID=1677564

Or the College Board Web Site: https://apstudent.collegeboard.org/home

 

 

We are looking forward to the challenge of next year!!
