Shoreline Public Schools one of eight in state named to AP District Honor Roll

Wednesday, December 13, 2017

Shoreline Public Schools was announced this week as one of 447 school districts in the U.S. and Canada to be honored by the College Board with placement on the 8th Annual Advanced Placement (AP) District Honor Roll.

To be included on the AP District Honor Roll, Shoreline Public Schools had to increase the number of students participating in high school AP Courses while also increasing or maintaining the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher over the past three years.

There are currently 539 Shoreline students enrolled in 27 AP courses offered at Shorecrest and Shorewood High Schools.

"This recognition is a testament to the incredible work our teachers and support staff engage in from preschool through senior years to help their students reach their full potential,” said Superintendent Rebecca Miner. “To be one of only eight districts in the State and less than 450 in the United States and Canada is an incredible honor for our entire school community.”

In 2017, more than 4,000 colleges and universities around the world received AP scores for college credit, advanced placement, or both, and/or consideration in the admissions process. Inclusion in the 8th Annual AP District Honor Roll is based on a review of three years of AP data, from 2015 to 2017, looking across 38 AP Exams, including world language and culture. The following criteria were used.

Districts must:
  • Increase participation/access to AP by at least 4% in large districts, at least 6% in medium districts, and at least 11% in small districts; 
  • Increased or maintained the percentage of American Indian/Alaska Native, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander students taking exams and increased or maintained the percentage of American Indian/Alaska Native, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander students scoring 3+ on at least one AP Exam; and
  • Improve or maintain performance levels when comparing the 2017 percentage of students scoring a 3 or higher to the 2015 percentage, unless the district has already attained a performance level at which more than 70% of its AP students earn a 3 or higher.
