Education Code, 28.010(b), as amended by SB 282, (80th Legislature)

Advanced Placement Program: Advanced Placement courses are challenging, comprehensive, and rigorous courses that allow students to pursue and receive college credit while in high school. College Board® course descriptions outline the content of courses, and each individual teacher’s course syllabus is approved by College Board®. AP courses are typically characterized by an in-depth study of college-level content, an accelerated pace and higher-level assessment. Students enrolled in AP courses are required to take the AP exam offered for that course in the spring. Colleges and universities have the option of accepting the AP exam results for college credit. Exams are graded on a five-point scale with credit usually given for scores of 3 or higher. While there is a fee for each test, financial aid is available. Rockwall’s secondary gifted and talented students’ needs are served through Pre-AP and Advanced Placement programs.Dual Credit Program: The dual credit program offered in Rockwall ISD allows qualifying students to earn high school credit and college hours simultaneously. Dual credit enrollment in a variety of courses is offered to students through Eastfield Community College and Collin County Community College. Students must obtain approval by consulting with their counselors prior to enrolling in dual credit courses at either community college, and they must also take the Texas Higher Education Assessment ® (THEA®). The community colleges may charge tuition and fees for dual credit courses. Each course taken for dual credit may count for one of the four advanced measures in the Distinguished Achievement Program.
