AP Exam Schedule
Rogers High School’s AP exam schedule has changed since the beginning of the year. Here is the revised RHS AP exam schedule.
Exams will be administered at Rogers High School on the listed date and time. Exams start promptly at the scheduled time and date. (Note that some exams may extend beyond the school day.)
Please note that not all exams will be administered using paper and pencil, some will be administered via computer. These are marked on the schedule as “Digital”. (As exam dates near, students will get more information about what to bring to their exams.)
Students who have opted for the distance learning model of instruction this spring who do not wish to test in person, will have an opportunity to test at home via computer. However, the time of the test may change. Testing at home requires prior arrangement with the RHS AP Coordinator, Shane Noecker, (firstname.lastname@example.org).
AP Proctors Needed
Proctors are needed for this year’s Advanced Placement Exams, which will be administered May 3-28. If you are a responsible adult—and not also a high school student—you are qualified to proctor the AP Exam. Duties include reading instructions, supervising the exam room, and maintaining the security of testing materials. Proctors are compensated by the hour. Parents are encouraged to apply, though proctors cannot supervise testing rooms where a relative is testing. The AP proctor/test aide position will be posted to the ISD 728 website on March 1. If you are interested in proctoring, please email Shane Noecker (email@example.com).
