Ralston Named to National AP Honor Roll

Ralston Public Schools is one of 373 school districts in the U.S. and Canada being honored by the College Board with placement on the 9th Annual AP® District Honor Roll. Only three school districts in Nebraska earned the honor this year.

To be included on the 9th Annual Honor Roll, Ralston Public Schools increased the number of students participating in Advanced Placement courses and exams while also increasing or maintaining the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher. Reaching these goals shows that this district is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for AP.

In 2018, more than 4,000 colleges and universities around the world received AP scores for college credit, advanced placement, or both, and/or consideration in the admissions process. Inclusion in the 9th Annual AP District Honor Roll is based on a review of three years of AP data, from 2016 to 2018, looking across 38 AP Exams, including world language and culture. The following criteria were used.
Districts must:

  • Increase participation/access to AP by at least 6%
  • Increase or maintain the percentage of American Indian/Alaska Native, Black/African American,
    Hispanic/Latino, and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander students taking exams
  • Increase or maintain the percentage of American Indian/Alaska Native, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander students scoring 3+ on at least one AP Exam; and
  • Improve or maintain performance levels when comparing the 2018 percentage of students scoring a 3 or higher to the 2016 percentage, unless the district has already attained a performance level at which more than 70% of its AP students earn a 3 or higher.
