Advanced College Placement

CODE:  IHCD

Maine School Administrative District No. 31


ADVANCED COLLEGE PLACEMENT



It is the belief of the Board that any student who is capable of, and wishes to do, college level work while in high school should be permitted to do so and given assistance in enrolling in advanced courses.


Advanced placement courses offered by the school system shall depend upon a sufficient number of students desiring the particular course and qualifying for it, and upon the availability of a staff member qualified to teach it.  M.S.A.D. #31 shall pay the cost for all students who wish to take an AP test.


Any high school student whose admission to a college-level course or courses is recommended by his/her counselor may enroll in a nearby college and be released from high school attendance for such hours as are required for the college course(s).  If the student wishes to receive high school credit for the course, he/she may request permission from his/her Principal, through the counselor, to apply the course toward high school graduation requirements.
