College Board Recognizes KISD on AP District Honor Roll

The College Board recognized Keller ISD as one of 539 school districts in the United States and Canada to place on the 2012-13 Annual AP District Honor Roll.

AP District Honor Roll districts are recognized for opening Advanced Placement doors to a significantly broader pool of students, while maintaining or improving the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP tests.

The Honor Role is based on three years of AP data: 2010, 2011, and 2012. Over that span, Keller ISD increased the number of students participating in AP from 1429 to 1743, while improving the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher from 61% in 2010 to 66% in 2012. An AP Exam score of 3 is typically needed to earn college credit.

Based on the Honor Role list, the College Board will honor three districts in the nation with the 2013 AP District of the Year awards—one each from categories of small, medium, and large districts. That award goes to the districts that have achieved the most significant improvements in the nation to college-level AP courses and student performance on AP Exams.
