Advanced Placement Summer Institutes
Each Summer Region 16 ESC hosts summer AP Institutes.  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 out 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.  Look for these sessions to be posted in late fall.
