student-advancement-in-virginiaOver $358,000 has just been awarded to the Virginia Department of Education that will primarily be used for advanced placement testing for low-income students, helping to identify any problem areas and advance their development.

This current round of funding for our state is part of the larger $28 million that the U.S. Department of Education awarded to 40 states, as well as Washington, D.C., as well as the Virgin Islands.

The cost for every AP test is typically $89, each school usually keeps $8 of that fee as a rebate to help with administrative costs.

This new grant is based on the anticipated number of test-takers, as well as the potential for specific resources for individual students. US education officials have anticipated that the payments should be sufficient to cover all but $18 of the cost of each advanced placement exam taken by each low-income student.
