In order to use accommodations on AP Exams, the student must request and be approved by College Board Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD). Please see your counselor or case specialist before February 2017 to request accommodations. This must be completed and submitted to College Board no later than February 17.  Parents and students are responsible for contacting their case manager before this date.

Make sure your student is approved for test accommodations from College Board.  Contact Mrs. Sokolik by February 10th at janice.sokolik@d214.org or (847) 718-5413 for more information.

These exams may be administered at an offsite location (Forest View Educational Center or another high school) and Prospect will not provide transportation.

Parent Permission for Testing and Transportation:

The parent/guardian acceptance on the Registration Form will be considered permission for your student to take Advanced Placement Exams and acknowledges that your student will provide his/her own transportation to the testing locations.

Specific dates, times and locations of AP Exams will be provided through AP classes and will be posted outside the Assessment Center,
Room 143, by April 27, 2017.  Students need to check prior to the testing date to be sure they are registered for the correct exam.
