Glenbard earns national recognition for equitable access to AP classes
Sep 22, 2016 5:12 PM - On Sept. 21, the White House and U.S. Department of Education recognized Glenbard District 87 for its commitment to closing the enrollment gap in Advanced Placement courses that exists between middle-income and upper-income white and Asian students and their low-income, black and Hispanic peers. Faculty and administrators in Glenbard's four high schools identified students who have the assets to be successful in Advanced Placement and through a variety of outreach methods, enrolled hundreds of these students in AP classes. This year, 874 traditionally under-represented Glenbard District 87 juniors and seniors enrolled in Advanced Placement classes. Glenbard serves approximately 8,100 students from nine communities.
