Grant to Help Low-Income Students Take AP Tests

Test

 

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – The South Dakota Department of Education is receiving more than $7,500 in an effort to help more low-income students take Advanced Placement exams.
The Advanced Placement Test Fee Program aims to encourage historically underserved students to take the university-level tests and earn college credit for high school courses. The U.S. Department of Education says the goal is to reduce the time and cost required to earn a degree after high school.
The grant funding will be used to help pay for low-income students taking approved Advanced Placement tests administered by the College Board, the International Baccalaureate Organization and Cambridge International Examinations.
