Dis­trict hon­ored by Col­lege Board

The Morning Journal (Lorain, OH) - - LOCAL NEWS - Staff re­port

Avon Lo­cal Schools is one of 373 school dis­tricts in the U.S. and Canada hon­ored by the Col­lege Board with place­ment on the ninth an­nual AP Dis­trict Honor Roll, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease.

To be in­cluded in the AP Dis­trict Honor Roll, Avon Schools had to, since 2016, in­crease the num­ber of stu­dents par­tic­i­pat­ing in Ad­vanced Place­ment while also in­creas­ing or main­tain­ing the per­cent­age of stu­dents earn­ing AP exam scores of three or higher, the re­lease said.

“We are proud of the di­ver­sity of cour­ses we are of­fer­ing our stu­dents,” said Kristina Buller, prin­ci­pal at Avon High School. “Our teach­ers are ded­i­cated to pro­vid­ing col­lege level of­fer­ings to our stu­dents.

“The cour­ses are rig­or­ous and re­ward­ing. There is both a fi­nan­cial and in­trin­sic value to these cour­ses and the stu­dents see what when ap­ply­ing to col­leges. I am proud of our staff and stu­dents.”

Buller said 360 stu­dents are en­rolled in AP cour­ses out of 1,400 stu­dents in the school.

“We are very proud of this dis­tinct recog­ni­tion and it is truly a re­flec­tion of our staff’s will­ing­ness to be trained and teach the rigor of an AP course,” said Ben Hodge, as­sis­tant su­per­in­ten­dent of Avon Schools.

“Our stu­dents con­tinue to be im­pres­sive as they per­form at such a high level ev­ery year.”
