The Ithaca City School District is on the College Board’s sixth annual Advanced Placement District Honor Roll. The school district achieved this honor by increasing access to AP coursework for a broader number of students while maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP exams since 2013.
“Our school district has committed to increasing access to high-level course offerings for all students,” said Superintendent Luvelle Brown. “The recent accolade from the College Board recognizes our success with not only increasing access, but increasing achievement at the same time. I am very proud of our students, teachers, and community.”
Twenty-five school districts in New York State are among more than 400 in the U.S. and Canada to earn this distinction.
Inclusion on the honor roll is based on the examination of three years of AP data, from 2013 to 2015, looking across 34 AP exams.
