In partnership with a group of 5-7 high-need high schools in the New England region (Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut), the Action Community will promote continuous improvement around Advanced Placement and field test public goods focused on:
Conditions: Helping districts and schools set the right conditions for increased enrollment and success in Advanced Placement courses for Black, Latino, and low-income students through the development of an Advanced Placement self-assessment diagnostic tool.
Preparation: Increasing the academic preparation of Black, Latino, and low-income students in 10th grade threshold courses prior to Advanced Placement. Threshold courses may include Algebra II, Geometry, English 10, Biology, and Chemistry.
Participation: Increasing the proportion of Black, Latino, and low-income students who enroll in AP STEM & English classes.
Performance: Increasing the proportion of Black, Latino, and low-income students who receive qualifying AP exam scores.
