Edison Advisement Conference Schedule

 

 

Dear Parent/Guardian:

         

In 2013 our Texas Legislature passed House Bill 5 (HB 5) changing the graduation requirements for students entering the ninth grade in 2014 - 2015.  Beginning in the 2014 - 2015 school year, school districts must ensure that each student, on entering ninth grade, indicates in writing an endorsement that the student intends to earn.  As per state mandate, high school counselors are to review the Personal Graduation Plan and endorsement together with the parent and each student entering 9th grade.  The Personal Graduation Plan must be signed by the student and parent.  Below is the Advisement Conference Schedule of date and time of your scheduled conference during the week of August 11 - 14.  It is imperative that you and your child attend at the designated time indicated below based on your child's last name.

If an Edison student earns a qualifying grade on an AP Exam (score of 3, 4, or 5), they can receive credit for the equivalent course at thousands of colleges and universities.  At Edison, we have had students earn up to a whole year’s worth of credits.  That amounts to a lot of money saved.  Many scholarship awards consider AP classes and grades.  It also allows a student to experience what a

college course will be like.  Talk to your counselor for Pre-AP or AP classes.

Exam Scores

AP Score Reports are sent in July to the college or university you designated on your answer sheet, to you, and to your high school. Each report is cumulative and includes scores for all the AP Exams you have ever taken, unless you have requested that one or more scores be withheld from a college or canceled. Visit AP Score Reporting Services.

To request that your score reports be sent to colleges, call 888 308-0013 (toll free in the United States and Canada) or 609 771-7366.

Most AP Score Reports are sent by mid-July. Some reports take longer to process because of problems with identification information or the late arrival of materials from the testing location. Contact AP Services if you have not received a score report by September 1.

Subscores are not available (except for Calculus BC and Music Theory) nor are scores analyzed to determine strengths and weaknesses.

 

  

PASS your AP & Pre-AP Classes

If you are not there, at 8:00, you miss the test. 
ALSO, you have a free dress day on the date of the test. 
After you are released from the test, I will give you a free dress pass for the rest of your day.

Planning for the day of your AP Test(s)          You are required to arrive no later 8:00 for the morning administration; 12noon for the afternoon administration.  Students may not be dismissed until an exam has officially ended.  Do not ask to leave early if you finish before the end of the test, as your request will be denied.  If you play a sport or have a job, it will be your responsibility to inform your coach or employer of your AP obligation and arrangements should be made accordingly.         
Get a good night’s rest before your test, and eat a nutritious breakfast.  You are allowed to bring a snack and beverage for your 10-minute break.  However, eating is prohibited while you are taking an exam.  It is advisable to dress in layers, in case the library temperature is below or above your comfort level.  
          You are required to abide by the policies of both the College Board and Edison High School/SAISD during the exam period.  Any misconduct will be reported and could jeopardize your AP Exam grade.  If you decide not to take an exam, please inform me
as soon as possible prior to the test administration. 
You can bring the following items to the exam:          Several sharpened No. 2 pencils (with erasers) for all multiple-choice answer sheets—we WILL provide you with pencils & pens.          Pens with black/dark blue ink for completing areas on exam booklet covers and
 free-response questions in most exams.
          Your social security # for identification purposes. If you provide it, the # will appear
on your AP Grade Reports.
