BVSD designated an AP Honor Roll District

“On behalf of the College Board, I am pleased to congratulate Boulder Valley School District as one of fewer than 400 public school districts in the nation honored by the College Board with a place on the 2nd Annual AP Honor Roll List, for opening AP classroom doors to a significantly broader pool of students, while maintaining or improving the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher.  This letter serves as authorization for your district to include the credential of being named a 2011-2012 AP Honor Roll in your web and print district profiles and other materials that highlight recognitions, honors, and distinctions earned by your district.  You can do this starting as early as November 1st, when the official announcement will be made. …”
