The College Board named Cairo-Durham Central School District to the AP® District Honor Roll, a distinction shared by 433 school districts across the United States and Canada.
The AP District Honor Roll recognizes school districts in the U.S. and Canada that achieved increases in access to Advanced Placement® (AP) courses for a broader number of students, while simultaneously maintaining or improving the rate at which their AP students earned scores of 3 or higher on an AP exam.
Of the 433 school districts, 25 districts in New York State received this distinction and Cairo-Durham CSD is one of only two districts in the Capital Region to make the list. Furthermore, Cairo-Durham is the only AP District Honor Roll recipient in New York State to have a 30% or greater enrollment of students who qualify for free/reduced lunch.
“We believe that it is our responsibility to afford our students the same opportunities at Cairo-Durham that other students at much larger schools are exposed to," said Superintendent Anthony Taibi. "This honor is a testament to our belief that our students are capable of great things if we continue to challenge them. We are very proud of this accomplishment.”
AP District Honor Roll recipients are committed to expanding the availability of AP courses among prepared and motivated students of all backgrounds. Congratulations to the AP teachers and students at Cairo-Durham CSD for their outstanding achievements.
