For "Graduating" High Schools

This is a voluntary program for schools and districts graduating as formal Participants in the full AdvanceKentucky program.  Schools that wish to continue as Partners will enter into a memorandum of agreement (MOA) in order to access selected services mentioned below at discounted rates.  While the program has demonstrated that the full suite of Elements of Success has contributed to the transformative growth in Advanced Placement (AP) participation and student success in high school and college, these services are currently most feasible to continue offering access to Partners.

Sign up here or read below for more information on services available for Partner Schools. 

Access to the services below will be documented in a new MOU between each Partner School / District and AdvanceKentucky / Kentucky Science and Technology Corporation outlining program benefits and school commitments negotiated with AdvanceKentucky.

Any school able to self-fund these and the other Elements of Success are welcome to negotiate continuing as a full Participant.

To be eligible to become a Partner, schools commit to AdvanceKentucky to:
  • Submit annual AP MSE student unit record enrollments;
  • Annually update the AP MSE online teacher roster;
  • Permit ongoing access to College Board's AP online score reports; and
  • Agree to training for new AP MSE teachers as mutually negotiated in the best interest of student success.
