AP-TIP Announces Cohort 11 of the Advanced Placement Teacher Investment Program
NOTRE DAME, Jan. 23, 2023 – In July 2023, seven high schools across the state of Indiana will join Cohort 11 of the Advanced Placement Teacher Investment Program (AP-TIP): Eastbrook High School, Hamilton Southeastern High School, Indiana Math and Science Academy - North, Lanesville Jr./Sr. High School, Manchester Jr./Sr. High School, North Decatur Jr./Sr. High School, and Tri-West High School.
Across three years of cohort membership, AP math, science, and English teachers will receive fully-funded access to a wide array of instructional resources and professional events. In addition to professional support, program teachers may qualify for benchmark awards for student participation on AP Exams or for meeting qualifying (3, 4, or 5) score goals on AP Exams in eligible courses. Students enrolled in eligible AP math, science, and English courses at cohort schools receive access to AP-TIP resources, as well. Students participate in online study sessions and mock exams, and—like their teachers—receive awards for qualifying AP Exam scores.
Since 2012, Indiana high schools have used their partnership with AP-TIP to increase enrollment and success in AP classes:
- On average, enrollment of all students in AP math, science, and English courses increased by 68%, enrollment of traditionally under-represented students increased by 104%, and enrollment of female students in AP math and science subjects increased by 64%.
- On average, the total number of AP math, science, and English qualifying exam scores increased by 58%, 132% for traditionally under-represented students, and 74% for female students in AP math and science subjects.
While AP-TIP's dedication to strengthening instruction and performance in AP courses is long-standing, the benefits of AP-TIP are broad and reach more than AP students. When many educators teach a combination of AP and other classes, skills and resources from AP-TIP programming benefit all students, regardless of course or instructional level.
