The Mountain Home School Board, during its regular monthly meeting Thursday night, approved a proposal to replace their current Pre-AP courses with the title of Honors classes. The school says according to the state, Honors courses are for “Students of high ability, though not necessarily identified as gifted, and who are placed in a class in which the curriculum focuses on higher levels of thinking and complexity therefore avoiding ‘more of the same.’ The term ‘honors’ is fitting for the current way we teach Pre-AP courses. AP courses and concurrent credit courses will not be impacted or changed in this process.”
The change is being made because The College Board who owns the Pre-AP brand recently made changes to the Pre-AP program, allowing only course curriculum purchased from The College Board to be called Pre-AP. Several courses the school offers as Pre-AP are not available through The College Board’s Pre-AP program.
The board approved a bid of $47,666 for bulk paper and plastic products and they approved an expenditure of $64,779 for the replacement of the current wireless network with wireless access points.
The board also approved quite a few personnel items:
