Advanced Placement Summer Institutes
In June 2011, Region 16 ESC will host summer institutes for the content areas of science and math. Look for those to be posted in late fall.
Fees for summer institutes are eligible for reimbursement from TEA. Since a district may be reimbursed for a teacher attending a summer institute every other year, Region 16 ESC offers our AP summer institutes on a rotating basis -- currently, English and social studies are offered in even numbered years while science and math are offered in odd numbered years.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I become certified to teach AP?
How do my students get AP credit?
Neither TEA nor College Board requires a certification for teaching an AP course. College Board does, however, recommend teachers attend summer institutes.
How can I be reimbursed for a summer institute?
- In order for students to have AP on their transcripts, the course syllabus must be approved by College Board. The College Board website offers sample syllabi, and approximately 70% of submitted syllabi are approved on first reading.
Teachers/Districts may be reimbursed up to $450 every other year for attending a summer institute. To apply for the reimbursement, click here.
