Parents,

I hope you had a chance to read my message from Wednesday. We know we had some issues with links to our COLT document, so I want to make sure you have it again.

Colts Owning Learning Together

Just a reminder about what the COLT document, after listening to teachers, students, and parents, these are strategies that these three groups can engage in to help support students as we continue with hybrid/virtual learning. I explain it further in a video here and here is a link to my message from Wednesday. I strongly urge you to watch the video with your child. It’s a little on the long side, but I think has some very helpful information.

AP Testing
It is our expectation that all students in AP courses take the AP exams in May. Exams are $13 each, so # of current AP courses x $13 = your total due. Payment is due by Nov. 1. Please pay online at tinyurl.com/AHSAP2020 If you will not be able to pay before Nov. 1, you can sign up for our payment plan. Either pay as little as $1 at tinyurl.com/AHSAP2020 or email Ms. Fougerousse (cfougero@aisd.net) directly. We do not want money to get in the way of any student's opportunity to take the exam, so please contact your teacher or Ms. Fougerousse if you are concerned about being able to pay for exams.
