ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A group of Rochester City School District students are traveling to the state capital on Monday to advocate for funding for Advanced Placement (AP) exams.
About 20 students and a few teachers from several RCSD high schools got on a bus from Adams Street to Albany. Students say taking AP course exams can be expensive. They’re urging lawmakers to maintain funding to help low-income students with the cost of AP exams. They’re also asking lawmakers to expand access to AP courses for schools that have few or none.
Some students who are taking multiple AP courses say the cost for exams can get expensive. Students also say that AP courses will prepare them for college.
