Clark County School District named College Board Advanced Placement District of the Year
The Clark County School District (CCSD) has been named a College Board Advanced Placement District of the Year for being the national leader among large school districts defined as 50,000 or more students in expanding access to Advanced Placement Program (AP) courses while simultaneously improving AP Exam performance. CCSD students, teachers, district and school administrators and College Board leadership celebrated these achievements with an award ceremony at Ed W. Clark High School.
"I'm extremely proud of this important distinction," said CCSD Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky. "This award reinforces that our district is headed in the right direction and aligns with our Pledge of Achievement goals to close achievement gaps, increase graduation rates and have students college and career ready by increasing the number of students taking AP courses. Our students and staff are setting goals and reaching them, which positively impacts our entire community and our economy."
