eligible for an online AP course, students must demonstrate readiness
for the rigor of the course by a score of 20 or above on the EXPLORE
test in the subject area of the proposed AP course or an ACT score of 21
or above in the subject area of the proposed course.
Placement courses are vendor based and used in conjunction with
approval granted by the Tennessee Department of Education. These
courses have higher fees due to the higher cost to Putnam County
Schools. Unless noted, Advanced Placement courses are FULL year courses
and fees for the full year must be paid upon enrollment. Course
fees do not include the cost of any required textbooks and materials or
the cost of the Advanced Placement exam. These expenses are solely the
responsibility of parents and students.
courses are designed to challenge students by preparing them to
demonstrate college level performance through success on end of course
Advanced Placement exams. These courses are designed for highly
motivated students who are reading at or above grade level and have
demonstrated success in high school coursework.
To earn credit at the highest quality point level, students must take the Advanced Placement exam and score a minimum of 3.
Attention prospective IB Diploma Candidates:
It is strongly
recommended that you take Spanish I, Spanish II, or Spanish III online
in order to fit all required language prerequisites into your schedule
in preparation for IB Spanish (Spanish V). Spanish IV should be taken
in the face to face classroom if at all possible in order to adequately
prepare students for the rigorous literary analysis necessary to be
successful in IB Spanish.
AP Spanish Language and Literature can be used to satisfy a fourth year of foreign language but it is NOT a true substitute for Spanish IV for students planning to take IB Spanish.
