Local Advanced Placement Credentialing (LAPC) Program
According to The College Board, the LAPC Program, launched in April 2014, is a FIRST of its kind in the nation. The main objective of the program is to increase student achievement in Advanced Placement (AP) courses across the District. Since inception, the LAPC Program has met its objective. In the last three years, the District AP passing rate has increased 6%, from 48.6% in 2014 to 54. 6% in 2017. LAPC teachers have the opportunity to attend an Advanced Placement Summer Institute (APSI) free of charge. They also participate in subject specific PLCs throughout the year to share best practices, collaborate and network with other AP teachers
throughout the District. Each PLC is facilitated by an AP Lead Teacher with documented experience as an Advanced Placement Summer Institute participant, AP exam reader and/or AP exam review instructor. (LAPC Schedule 2017-18)
