Advanced Placement (AP)

  • Dallas ISD offers Advanced Placement (AP) courses to high school students who are ready to engage in college-level content. AP classes are open to all secondary students and taught by College Board authorized Dallas ISD teachers. Those who choose to enroll should prepare for the increased academic challenge and workload of these college preparatory courses.  

    The College Board’s Equity and Access Policy Statement

    The College Board strongly encourages educators to make equitable access a guiding principle for their AP programs by giving all willing and academically prepared students the opportunity to participate in AP. We encourage educators to:

    • Eliminate barriers that restrict access to AP for students from ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic groups that have been traditionally underserved.
    • Make every effort to ensure their AP classes reflect the diversity of their student population.
    • Provide all students with access to academically challenging coursework before they enroll in AP classes.

    Only through a commitment to equitable preparation and access can true equity and excellence be achieved.

AP Summer Institutes

  • Advanced Placement Summer Institute (APSI) training is content-focused and pedagogy-driven. It offers hands-on training, resources, and ongoing coaching support for Advanced Placement (AP) teachers. Participants will learn how to better engage and prepare their students for academic success. 


    Advanced Academic Services will fund APSI registration fees for a limited number of core content (English, math, science, and social studies) AP teachers on a first come, first served basis. Those who will teach AP courses in these content areas during the 2021-2022 school year are eligible for this funding.  However, priority will be given to new teachers, priority campuses, and teachers who did not attend last summer.
