The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) has money available again this year for one-time-only equipment and materials grants for Advanced Placement (AP) courses. This money may be requested for any AP course (THIS COURSE MUST BE APPROVED BY THE COLLEGE BOARD FOR 2009-2010) being taught at a high school that has not already received money for the course(s) under the Arkansas Advanced Placement Incentive Program (1996-2009). Pre-AP courses are NOT included in this grant opportunity.
Also, any high school with a carryover from the Advanced Placement Incentive Funds May 2009 report, equal to or greater than the request, should not apply for this new grant opportunity. The school’s carryover money can also be spent on AP equipment and materials.
The application must be submitted on or before September 22, 2009. The complete application form with instructions is attached.
