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 are 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.
