Update: AP Exam Fees, gofundme Campaign to Cover Cost & Test Schedule
School NewsComments Off on Update: AP Exam Fees, gofundme Campaign to Cover Cost & Test Schedule
At Oakland Tech, all students enrolled in AP classes are strongly encouraged to take the corresponding AP exams in May.
When word spread that OUSD was not going to cover the $94/per AP exam fee this year — and a gofundme campaign was launched to raise funds to offset this financial hardship for many of our families — we were, and continue to be, overwhelmed by the outpouring of support.
We raised $25,501 from 239 people in just seven days! THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to help our students excel and pursue their dreams! We are grateful beyond words.
We closed the campaign, having exceeded all expectations for what we might achieve with it. The school administration worked with students all week to allocate the donations to ensure that the neediest students received the help they needed before the AP signup deadline of March 30.
Thank you again for your support of our students!
Below is the 2018 exam schedule issued by the College Board, which conducts the AP program. AP tests are given across the country on the same day at the same time. Please note that Tech does not offer a few of the courses referenced in the schedule. Check the College Board website for more information.
