The College Board, creators of Advanced Placement, recently announced significant changes to the AP exam ordering process, deadlines, late fees, and cancellation fees that will be mandated for all schools and all students in the 2019-2020 school year.
Next year, all students will decide whether to take AP exams and order their exams by November 15, 2019. All students in AP classes who register after November 15, 2019 will be assessed a late fee of $40 per exam. In addition, a cancellation fee of $40 per exam will be assessed for any exam order canceled after November 15, 2019.
While these changes will not affect AP registration and testing during the Spring 2019 semester, it is important that all families are aware of the College Board’s upcoming new policies, especially as students begin registering for their 2019-2020 courses. We understand these changes may cause concern for students, parents, and teachers. Please keep in mind these changes in ordering deadlines and late fees are being mandated and assessed by College Board, and were not decided by the school, district, or state.
George Washington’s JV and Varsity Baseball teams are in the midst of a major upgrade to the baseball field in preparation for the spring season. To that end, the Patriot Baseball Organization invites you to support the team by advertising your business on an outfield fence banner. Each sign is 4 feet x 8 feet to ensure great visibility. The field is used by GW’s baseball teams from February through the end of October. Banners are removed from the fence during winter months. Sponsorship options are as follows:
Grand Slam: $1000 five-year sponsorship
Home Run: $900 four-year sponsorship
Triple: $750 three-year sponsorship
Double: $400 one-year sponsorship
If you want more information or know of a business that would be interested in advertising on our outfield fence, please contact Debbie Bishop at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 303-908-6504.
Thanks for your support, and Go Patriots!
