Students will not be able to apply for AP scholarships to cover the cost of AP exams this year. In past years, students who were taking multiple exams could apply for the scholarship to cover part of the cost.
According to AP coordinator Cari Oberreuter, approximately 62 students utilized the program last year.
However, this year, the district did not receive the College Readiness Block Grant it previously used to provide AP scholarships.
Senior Madison Husing is in four AP classes this year and initially planned to take all four exams; however, after the change she said she will no longer take AP Literature.
“There is an in between between people who have so much money and they can pay for all these things and people who have absolutely nothing,” Husing said. “They shouldn’t just get rid of it. Because yeah, people need the help.”
