We are happy to announce the continuation of the Arkansas Advanced Placement Computer Science A Incentive Program. The purpose of this program is to increase the number of qualifying scores (3, 4, or 5) on the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Computer Science (CS) A exam. This program will not apply to the College Board AP CS Principles exam or any other exam.
Under this program Arkansas students and schools may be eligible to receive a tiered monetary incentive/reward when the student receives one computer science flex credit for successfully completing an AP CS A course in an Arkansas public school and makes a qualifying score on the AP CS A exam taken between July 1, 2022, and June 30, 2023.
Student scores will be verified by official College Board data shared with ADE during the fall of 2023. Payments to schools/students will be processed by January 27, 2024. Student award payments will be sent to the school district for distribution.
Each student may only receive any of the above awards once, and teachers may not receive multiple awards for the same student.
