News releaseAlpine, Davis, Morgan Districts Named to AP Honor Roll

SALT LAKE CITY – Utah’s Alpine, Davis, and Morgan school districts were named to the fourth annual AP District Honor Roll, the College Board announced today. The honor recognizes districts who have simultaneously increased access to AP courses while maintaining or increasing the number of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP tests.

The College Board, creators of the AP exams, used AP data from 2011-2013 to create the honor roll. Criteria includes:

  • Increasing access to AP by at least 4 percent in large districts, at least 6 percent in medium districts, and at least 11 percent in small districts.
  • Increasing or maintaining the percentage of exams taken by black, Hispanic, and American Indian students.
  • Improving performance levels on tests between 2011 and 2013, unless the district has already achieved a level of 70 percent of its students earning scores of 3 or better.

In 2013 Alpine District had 2,587 students take 3,311 exams with a success rate of 76.7 percent; Davis District had 3,480 students take 5,892 exams with a success rate of 73.5 percent; Morgan District had 108 students take 226 exams with a success rate of 55.8 percent. A total of 20,638 Utah public school students took 33,217 exams in 2013 with a success rate of 67.4 percent.
