FARMINGTON — The Davis School District has once again been named to the Advanced Placement Honor Roll by the College Board, a nonprofit organization representing hundreds of colleges responsible for the Scholastic Assessment Test and the AP program.
The district is only one of four in the nation that has been named to the list each year since it was created seven years ago. The Duchesne County School District also made the list for the second year in a row.
Districts on the AP Honor Roll must not only increase access to AP coursework but also maintain or improve the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP tests. This year, 433 districts in the U.S. and Canada earned the distinction.
The College Board examines three years of AP data to make sure the district increased participation or access to AP programs by at least 4 percent and improved performance levels when comparing the students who scored a 3 or higher in 2016 with those who passed tests in 2014, unless the district already attained a 70 percent or higher pass rate.
