AP in the course catalog

Principal Mary Mackbee, who was out of town when the issue heated up, distributed a letter at Monday’s meeting noting that AP and Quest courses were in the 2014-15 course catalog. When a parent asked if AP was being phased out, Mackbee replied: “That’s not my understanding.”

Asked the next day if she was satisfied, Shariff said, “Certainly, the information received last night implied there were no immediate changes … but I think there’s still a lot of uncertainty about what will happen as we move forward.”

Allen said that she believed the misunderstanding stemmed from comments made by Mohs at the staff meeting about the impending review of AP courses districtwide. “At no point,” however, she said, “did he say that AP would be eliminated.” The district has made clear, however, that no new AP classes will be added at Central, Allen said.

On that point, at least at Central High last Monday night, there were no misunderstandings.
