I hope you are all doing well during this challenging time. Most of you are aware of the changes in testing and the pausing of college tours/information sessions due to the virus, but I wanted to share the relevant information and links so you have them in one place.
These changes and the uncertainty they bring can be stressful, but please try not to worry. We are all in the same boat and everything will be worked out as soon as possible by both the testing centers and the colleges. I will certainly share any additional information as it comes out.
Please feel free to contact me anytime if you have questions or concerns. All meetings will be via Zoom videoconferencing or phone until we are through this period.

Traditional face-to-face exam administrations will not take place. Students will take a 45-minute online free-response exam at home.
Some students may want to take the exam sooner rather than later, while the content is still fresh.
Other students may want more time to practice. For each AP subject, there will be 2 different testing dates.
