Issaquah School District Named to College Board’s AP District Honor Roll

Posted by L Michelle on December 07, 2018

Issaquah, WA—The Issaquah School District (ISD) is proud to announce that it is among a select group of 373 school districts in the U.S. and Canada to be included on the College Board’s 9th Annual AP District Honor Roll this year. The College Board acknowledges districts that actively work to encourage academically prepared students enroll in AP course access and clear a path to ensure availability and access to AP courses among students of all backgrounds. Over a three year period (2016-2018), the ISD, along with the other districts on the honor roll, increased the number of students taking AP courses while also increasing or maintaining the percentage of students earning AP exam scores of three or higher between 2016 and 2018.

“All of our high schools are committed to removing barriers for any student who wishes to challenge themselves in a rigorous course, like an AP course, explains Executive Director of High Schools, Donna Hood. “We accomplish this through an administrative staff who diligently support students in need of fee waivers, the excellent guidance provided by our school counselors in the course request process each spring, and the one-on-one conversations our teaching staff have encouraging students to stretch themselves.”

This is the sixth non-consecutive year that the ISD has been named to the list since the recognition program began in 2011. The complete 9th Annual AP District Honor Roll can be found online at https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/score-reports-data/awards/honor-roll.
