AP Exams News from the College Board
Information for families from the College Board regarding upcoming AP exams:
We are committed to providing students with opportunities to demonstrate the knowledge and skills they’ve developed in AP classes this year. During this extraordinary time, we’re launching daily video lessons, taught online by AP teachers, as well as AP Exams that can be taken at home.
More information is available at collegeboard.org/ap-covid19-updates and we will email schools and students with important updates.
Q: When will AP Exams be offered this year?
We’re providing two online testing dates for each AP subject—one sooner, one later—so that students can choose what works best for them. Because each AP Exam will only include questions about the units of the course typically taught prior to March each year, many students will prefer to test sooner, while the material is still fresh. By April 3, we’ll publish the full exam schedule including the specific free-response question types that will comprise each AP exam.
Online AP Classes
Q. When do online AP classes begin?
Wednesday, March 25, 2020. A schedule of classes, including descriptions of each lesson is available at collegeboard.org/ap-covid19-updates. All classes are available for free and are completely optional.
Q: Where can students access the classes?
Students can find the classes at youtube.com/advancedplacement.
Q. What if a student can’t attend a particular class?
The classes will also be available on-demand at youtube.com/advancedplacement so teachers and students can access them any time. But remember these classes are optional, not required. They will begin finishing up the AP course so students have the knowledge for the subsequent coursework in college and loop back to review the entire course.
Q. Will all AP subjects have online classes?
All subjects will have live online classes except for 2-D Art & Design, 3-D Art & Design, Drawing, Seminar, and Research. These courses will instead receive on-demand lessons that will cover the tasks required for the course. These will be available by early April. Computer Science Principles students will receive support from endorsed providers.

10 Reasons to Volunteer
1. Make a difference.
Volunteering is about giving back. With a team of like-minded people by your side, you’ll get the chance to be a part of something bigger than yourself: to immerse yourself in different experiences, to instigate change at a grassroots level and along the way, to gain new perspective.
2. Change a life.
We believe the most beneficial thing we can do is to give people opportunities, not handouts. With us, you will lay the foundations of durable change and improvement in the lives of the communities you work with.
3. Give back to the causes most meaningful to you.
Pick your volunteer work based on what inspires you most. Whether it’s animal conservation, primary education, or construction work, you will create positive change in the world.
4. Gain a new perspective.
As the saying goes, “life begins at the end of your comfort-zone”. We come from extremely privileged countries in terms of both opportunities and amenities, and often do not realize the hardships others endure. You will be amazed how much you can take away from a summer volunteer experience and how it allows you to see the world in a different way.
5. Make a real connection.
Volunteering means you’ll have the chance to work alongside people from all over the country and make life-long friendships!
6. Real-world experience.
Releasing baby turtles, teaching English in underprivileged primary schools, laying foundations and building houses, preparing lunch for up to 100 children, cleaning crocodile enclosures, refurbishing classrooms, making enrichment toys for elephants… talk about real-world experience! You will bring home skills you never even knew existed!
7. Learn new skills.
Volunteering abroad is eye-opening, and the perfect opportunity to challenge yourself: you’ll learn to problem-solve, work with a team, be resourceful and adapt to life in an unfamiliar environment. These are skills that will benefit you for the rest of your life, no matter what field of work you chose.
8. Boost your resume for college applications.
As a general rule, recruiters look out for people with community involvement. It helps to create a positive impression, makes you more innovative, creative and gives you a range of useful skills. More importantly, college recruiters look at community involvement from students as a demonstration of leadership.
9. It's fun!
Volunteer work can be demanding, but it’s also a whole lot of fun!
