Early Post Secondary Opportunities - Reaching All Students with Advanced Placement

  • Wilson County Schools' Administrative & Training Complex 415 Harding Drive Lebanon, TN 37087 USA (map)

Why you want to attend this event:

More and more Tennessee schools are adding AP courses to their EPSO offerings, including the new AP Computer Science Principles and AP Capstone (Research and Seminar) courses. 

But how do we ensure your students are set up for success?

Many Tennessee districts are turning to SpringBoard, College Board's grade 6 – 12 ELA and Math core program offering a unique triple alignment to your (1) state standards, (2) AP coursework instructional strategies, and (3) high stakes college entrance exams such as the PSAT/SAT. Is your district looking for ways to impact college and career readiness for ALL students through daily classroom instruction?  Districts using SpringBoard also see an increase in AP enrollment and success; including gains in the number of African American and Hispanic students enrolled in AP courses as well as gains in the number of these students scoring a 3 or higher on at least one AP exam.  Please join us so you can experience SpringBoard firsthand and have the opportunity to request sample materials for ELA and Math leaders in your district or school.
