Leland makes AP honor roll

Leland Public School has put more feather in its collective cap.

School board members learned Monday night that the Leland School District is one of 23 in Michigan and 433 nationwide to earn a place on the 7th annual Advanced Placement (AP) District Honor Roll.

Since 2014, districts had to increase the number of students participating in AP while also increasing or maintaining the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher to qualify.

“We’re very pleased to receive this recognition,” Leland Superintendent Jason Stowe said. Advanced Placement (AP) is a program in the United States and Canada created by the College Board which offers college-level curricula and examinations to high school students.

The distinction comes less than a month after Leland received International Baccalaureate accreditation at the primary and middle school levels.

In northern Michgian, only Leland and the Crawford-AuSable school districts were placed on the AP honor roll.
