FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
League City, TEXAS—Pat Jones, Clear Creek Independent School District faculty consultant to the College Board, has been selected to participate in the annual reading and scoring of the College Board’s AP Examinations in English Language and Composition.
Each year the AP Program, sponsored by the College Board, gives more than one million capable high school students an opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses and examinations and, based on their exam performance, to receive credit and/or advanced placement when they enter college.
More than 6,000 readers from universities and high schools evaluated approximately 1.9 million examinations in 19 disciplines. Representing many of the finest academic institutions in the world, these men and women are some of the best high school and college educators in the United States, Canada and abroad.
The AP Reading is a unique forum in which academic dialogue between secondary school and college educators is fostered and strongly encouraged.
“The Reading draws upon the talents of some of the finest teachers and professors that the world has to offer,” said Trevor Packer, Executive Director of the Advanced Placement Program at the College Board. “It fosters professionalism, allows for the exchange of ideas and strengthens the commitment to students and to teaching. We are very grateful for the contributions of talented educators like Pat Jones.”
