 AP Information for School Personnel

Advanced Placement 

Advanced Placement courses are college-level courses offered by trained high school teachers in the regular high school setting. Since 2008, over one-third of the seniors in Georgia public high schools were enrolled in AP courses. AP courses guarantee rigor in our classrooms. To learn more about offering AP courses in your high school, contact Gail Humble, Program Manager for AP at the GaDOE, at 404-463-5098 or

GaDOE is sponsoring 7 Regional Workshops throughout the fall of 2018. These workshops offer specific courses at each site; please see the online registration form for a listing at each site. There is no registration fee. For questions, contact Martha Smith at

New AP Coordinators

New AP Coordinators in GA high schools need to carefully study the AP Coordinator’s Manual for guidance regarding the AP Course Audit process and the process for ordering and administering AP exams. If you do not have a copy of the manual, contact the Southern Regional Office of The College Board at 770-225-4050.

AP Audit/Authorized Syllabi 

Principals must ensure that the syllabus for each AP teacher in the school is authorized by The College Board, or students will not be able to receive college credit based on successful AP exam scores. To authorize a syllabus, the principal must access the AP Audit registration site and enter the teacher’s name and then work with the teacher to get the syllabus submitted for approval. Principals that have questions about the Audit process may contact Ms. Lynn Demmons at the Southern Regional Office of The College Board at 770-225-4028.

AP teachers, high school principals, counselors, and AP coordinators should take advantage of the APCentral website. This resource has a wealth of information about AP courses and many layers of resources for AP teachers.

Georgia AP Teacher Network 

This is a contact list of Georgia AP Teachers by course who have attended GaDOE AP Regional workshops or who have asked to be a part of this professional network in order to share information, resources, and/ or seek solutions or assistance.  This network list is also used to notify AP teachers of upcoming workshops, webinars, and other opportunities.  If you have questions or would like to join this network, please contact Georgia McSwain at .
