School district celebrates African-American AP performance

FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -- A new report names Fulton County Schools as one of six urban districts nationwide to successfully increase African-American participation and success in Advanced Placement courses.

The report, "The Road to Equity: Expanding AP Access and Success for African-American Students," was created by the Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation.

It explains how black students in Fulton County Schools have improved their AP passing rates enough to gain on their white classmates, and how more and more black students have shown interest in taking AP courses.

"This report is eye-opening in how well our schools are doing, but to reach our strategic goal of increased college preparedness, we have to do more to engage all of our minority student populations," Fulton County Schools Superintendent Dr. Robert Avossa said in a statement.

"It's not enough to just increase our African-American students' participation. We must also continue providing access and support to make sure our students are successful," Avossa added.
