State supports AP exams and low income students


In January of this year, I wrote a letter to Governor Baker imploring him to support low-income students by paying for their AP exams after the federal government cut funding for the AP program.  I am happy to report that the Governor has agreed to cover the costs associated with AP exams for low-income students with an allocation of $326,000.  With the collective support of our state representatives, senators, and educators, students across the Commonwealth will all now have the opportunity to take the AP exam regardless of their ability to pay.
