Revised April 2020 to Reflect School Closing Changes
SHHS AP teachers and students have been communicating through Schoology, our online instruction platform.
Most AP students have already paid for his or her exam/s. Students or parents who would like to discuss AP payments with Mrs. Field, the school's test coordinator, may email her at for more information.
All AP Students and their parents should access updated exam information, including the test schedule and exam procedures by going to The College Board website https://apcoronavirusupdates.collegeboard.org/students
Graduation Requirement Tests - MCAP (formerly PARCC), MISA, and HSA
Traditionally, students needed to take and meet score requirements for standardized testing in the following content areas:
Algebra I MCAP
English 10 MCAP
Due to schools being closed because of the Covid-19 health crisis, MSDE has confirmed that Maryland is exempt from administering three of the four exams which are federal requirements: Algebra I, English 10, and MISA. Decisions about the Government HSA will be made pending notification from MSDE.
In short, students currently involved in those test activities (preparing for the test or working on a "bridge project") will not be penalized for not being able to meet his or her test graduation requirements at this time.
As more details become available, we will share that information. For more information, please feel free to contact the school test coordinator, Mrs. Amy Field at firstname.lastname@example.org.
