 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 ghumble@doe.k12.ga.us.

GaDOE sponsored 7 Regional Workshops throughout the fall of 2018. These workshops, led by Georgia teacher leaders, offered Advanced Placement teachers across the state the opportunity to learn, collaborate, and share best practices specific to their AP course. Over 1,300 teachers participated in the 2018 AP teacher workshops.

AP Coordinators, principals, teachers, and counselors should take advantage of the AP Central​ website. This resource has a wealth of information about AP courses, upcoming changes for the 2019 school year, and many additional resources for AP teachers.  


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. For additional AP Coordinator resources, visit the AP Coordinator page of the College Board website at https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/ap-coordinators​


AP Audit/Authorized Syllabi 

​Principals must ensure that the syllabus for each AP teacher in the school is authorized by The College Board through the audit process. The audit process ensures each course meets specific academic/AP standards. After a course is authorized​ through the audit, it will appear in the AP Course Ledger, the official list of all AP courses. 

To authorize a syllabus, the principal (or designee) 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. Brandi Saab at the Southern Regional Office of The College Board at 770-225-4041.

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 Alison Coker at acoker@doe.k12.ga.us​ or Martha Smith at masmith@doe.k12.ga.us​.

Building a Quality AP Program

AP Potential is a powerful free tool schools may use to identify potential AP students. AP Potential utilizes data from the PSAT to help match students in your school who could be successful in specific AP courses. For assistance, contact Alison Coker at acoker@doe.k12.ga.us or Martha Smith at masmith@doe.k12.ga.us​.
