Parents of Advanced Placement Students,
The College Board, creators of Advanced Placement, recently made significant changes to the AP exam ordering process, deadlines, late fees and cancellation fees that will be mandated for all schools and all students in the 2019-2020 school year.
It is important that all families are aware of these changes:
- AP Exam payment for the May exams will be collected this Fall semester. The cost of each exam is $100.00 for the exam and for administration/proctoring costs. Students who qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch will pay $40 per exam. Payment can be made in person at the ASB or online at the ASB Webstore starting in August. There will be no sales the week of October 7th due to Homecoming activities. Please budget and plan accordingly to pay for the exams. The school deadline is October 25, 2019.
- Any exams ordered after the initial school order submission to the College Board will be assessed an additional $40.00/exam late fee per exam.
- An additional $40.00/exam cancellation fee will be assessed for any exam order cancelled after Nov 15, 2019.
- Furthermore, there is a $40/exam no show fee for students who ordered a test but do not take it in May.

Welcome back for the 2019-2020 school year. The first day of school for registered students is Monday, July 22nd.
*The last day to request course changes or electives was Friday, May 31st provided space availability and appropriate placement.
*Counselors will focus on resolving scheduling errors and balancing classes during the opening weeks. Students with mistakes or concerns in their schedules can see their counselor during lunch. All students must address concerns in person during these times. Parents, please direct your students to follow the correct process and practice their self-advocacy skills.
*We are unable to honor requests for specific teachers, class periods, and other preferences. Counselors will work to balance class sizes to ensure productive learning environments and to meet teacher contractual limits. The addition or closure of classes may be necessary with changes in enrollment or staffing.
Please review the Eagle Eye Newsletter for other information regarding important events, SAT and ACT testing, and counseling services.
We look forward to another fantastic year at Olympian High School!
