SED Update – AP & GRS
(Droid – use menu/browser for full text)
$17.3 has been awarded to 17 school districts and local consortia for the NYS Virtual Advanced Placement (VAP) program. The program is intended to provide students (especially low-income students) access to take AP classes and tests on their own schedule and at their own pace. Eleven of the 17 awardees are affiliated with SAANYS.
Associate Commissioner Ken Wagner has notified us that the online Growth Reporting System (GRS) is available via a link on EngageNY.org beginning today, November 30.
The GRS will enable authorized teachers, principals, and district personnel to securely access 2011-12 State-provided growth results.
