Hello Georgia Educators!
In these unprecedented times, we want to be helpful.
That starts by being a good partner and anticipating/answering your needs for the current state of schools. In order to do that, we've put together this temporary site to help support you and your schools with our programs with both face-to-face and virtual learning. This is not an attempt to recreate or replace the vast resources of our organizational website, but rather a chance for us to support GA districts in the same way that we would when we visit.
We'll update this site as needed, but for the most updated information, please click on the blue button at the top of the site to head over to the College Board website or visit www.collegeboard.org. We'll try to keep you informed as we make updates.
Thank you for all that you do for the students of Georgia. We look forward to our continued work together.

Georgia AP Coordinator Meeting
GaDOE AP Coordinators' Webinar 8/19/2020
Join the College Board to learn about programs and free resources you can use to help students plan, prepare, and pay for college – even during a pandemic. Whether they’re seniors about to make their final decisions, juniors taking the first steps of the planning process, or sophomores just starting to explore, this session will help support educators advising students toward making college a reality. As is the case every year, 10th grade Georgia students get a jump-start on the process by participating in the PSAT/NSMQT. Help put those results to work and make the most of your student opportunities – or learn what you can still do if your sophomores couldn’t participate this year.We’ll discuss five actionable steps that every student can make right now – from the classroom or at home – in order to stay on track to be prepared for, able to enroll in, and afford college. Coordinators will leave the virtual session with a lesson plan and presentation materials to use with their students.
As is the case every year, 10th grade Georgia students get a jumpstart on the college-planning process by participating in the PSAT/NSMQT. In October, we shared information on programs and free resources to support students as they plan for college. As a follow-up, we offer a new webinar that focuses specifically on academic preparedness and putting PSAT/NMSQT scores to good use once they are released to educators on November 30th. Join as the College Board supports educators as they prepare to review PSAT/NMSQT scores and reports with students. Educators will learn how students can access scores online, understand how to use those score reports to improve academic skills, and receive personalize practice recommendations through the Khan Academy. We’ll also highlight the corresponding instructional planning reports available to educators in the K12 Portal. Coordinators will leave the virtual session with a lesson plan and presentation materials to use with their students. Please feel free to share the invitation with the appropriate personnel (counselors, department chairs, etc.). This webinar will be recorded and available for viewing 48 hours after the event.
