VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!

Volunteers are needed for AP Exams!

We are currently looking for adult volunteers to help with check-in, distribution of materials, and being an extra set of eyes to prevent possible cheating. The exams are held from May 6th until May 17th, with 1-2 sessions per day. It also acts as an opportunity to get an inside look at what your student should expect to experience when they take their own AP exam.

If you are interested in signing up to help during one (or more!) exam session, please contact Haileigh Hopper at hahopper@capousd.org

 

Thank you for your support!!

IF A STUDENT SIGNS UP AFTER MARCH 6TH, THEY WILL BE REQUIRED TO ATTEND A PRE-BUBBLING SESSION. 

*** No refunds will be granted for exams that are cancelled after 3/6/17 at 11:59pm ***

How to Register

  • SCHS students pay for all AP exams using the Total Registration website. NO payments will be accepted on campus.
  • If you took an AP exam last year, be sure to use the same email address when accessing the Total Registration site. 
  • Print a copy of your AP exam registration and payment confirmation for your records.
  • Mark your calendar for your AP exam date(s).
  • Pick up a “Bulletin for AP students and Parents Handbook” from one of your AP teachers, or in the upper right corner of this site. This bulletin will answer many of your questions regarding how to prepare for the exams as well as the test administration policies and procedures.
  • Use this link to access Total Registration:       www.TotalRegistration.net/AP/052814

Financial assistance:

  • To see if you might qualify, click here: AP Fee Waiver Info
  • ​If you need financial assistance you MUST visit the Guidance Office as soon as possible. Please see Mrs. Spencer no later than February 22nd for a forms and approval. Students will also need a copy of their Free/Reduced Lunch confirmation letter (OR tax returns from last year)

IB  Exam or CIF Sport Conflict:

  • IB Students:  It is your responsibility, not the school’s, to figure out if you have a scheduling conflict with IB exams. See Guidance as soon as possible to order an alternate exam.
  • Student Athlete:  It is your responsibility to confirm with your coach if your (only sanctioned) CIF events will conflict with an AP exam.  Once the conflict is confirmed by the coach, an alternate test may be ordered for an extra fee. See Guidance to order.   https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/late-testing-dates                       

Accommodations:

  • If you currently receive testing accommodations or need to apply for approved accommodations through College Board, you need to speak with Mrs. Spencer in Guidance by February 22nd. College Board takes several weeks to complete the approval process. 

 

Day of the Exam

Check-in time for AP exams is 7:30 a.m. for the morning administration and 12pm for the afternoon administration. Students may not be dismissed until an exam has officially ended; DO NOT ASK TO LEAVE EARLY if you finish before the end of the exam. If you play a sport or have a job, it is your responsibility to inform your coach or employer of your AP Exam obligation, and arrangements should be made accordingly.

Get a good night’s rest before your exam, and eat a nutritious breakfast. It is advisable to dress in layers, as the testing room may not always be at your comfort level. 

You are required to abide by the policies of both the College Board and SCHS during the exam period. Any misconduct will be reported and could jeopardize your AP Exam score.  Be sure to review the 2018-19 Bulletin for AP Students and Parents (available in the Guidance Office, classrooms of AP teachers, in the top right corner of this site, and on the College Board website). Although there will be NO REFUNDS available, if you decide not to take an exam, please inform Mrs. Hopper as soon as possible prior to the test administration.

If you have any additional questions or concerns, feel free to email Mrs. Hopper in the SCHS Guidance Office at hahopper@capousd.org. Good luck!!
