AP Exam Registration 2014-15
click to expand

February 16- February 28

Important Note!
We've learned that in addition to bringing in the confirmation page, you also must bring in a signed copy of the "SHS AP Policies and Procedures" form.  I've attached a copy of it for you to print.  Here is the link to it on the AP Registration site as well:
https://user.totalregistration.net/register/additionalDocuments.php?examType=AP

After you log in, you can also go to "additional documents" to find the form.

STEP 1: Stop by Student Services and pick up your 2014-15 AP Bulletin for Students and Parents.

STEP 2: You must register  and schedule online for your exams

Students will be registering for AP exams online using Total Registration. This can be done from any computer with an internet connection.  To register for AP Exams, please visit www.TotalRegistration.net/AP/343213. Be sure to answer all questions.

When filling out the form, select all your exams you will be taking and the appropriate teachers. You will not be able to come back and edit this registration at a later date.

When you reach the confirmation page print two copies - one for your records and the other to return to Student Services by the end of day on Monday, March 2, 2105.

STEP 3: Fees for the AP Exams

This year, the Department of Public Instruction will be paying the AP exam fees for all students who wish to take the AP Exam.  Only students who are in the AP course may have their AP exams paid for by the state. 

Please know if you register for an exam and then you do not take the exam, you will be charged a $15 no show fee. This fee is charged by Collegeboard and neither the state, nor SHS will pay this fee for you. Additionally, please be sure you check your calendar and only register for exams that you know you can take. If you decide you have to take a late exam, you will have to pay a $45 late testing fee. Again, this is a fee charged by Collegeboard that you will be responsible for if you choose not to test on the date for which you have registered.

Important Dates:  Registration begins on February 16 and ends February 28. There is no late registration!     

Your confirmation page must be returned to Mrs. Carpino in Sanderson School Student Services Department by the end of the day on Monday, March 2, 2015.

If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Carpino at lcarpino@wcpss.net.

PVSA and SHSVSA Awards for Volunteer Service
click to expand

The Academic Booster Club sponsors two volunteer service awards for students who improve their communites through volunteer service:  the Presidential Service Award  (PVSA), issued by the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation; and the Sanderson High School Volunteer Service Award (SHSVSA), issued by Sanderson for those who do have a minimum of 25 service hours but do not have enough service hours to qualify for the PVSA.

To be eligible for a volunteer service award, students must record their volunteer hours in 2 locations:

  1) Set up an account and enter/track their hours on the PVSA website http://www.presidentialserviceawards.gov.  Once the student account is set up, the student MUST go to the "Profile" tab and entere Sanderson's Record of Service key, which is CO-JCV-9826W or the hours will not be reported for credit towards the award.  This is required for all service awards, regardless of level or type.

  2) Hours must be recorded on a "Record of Service Form" with supervisor signatures verifying the number of volunteer hours.  The forms are turned in at the front desk in the main office.  You can access the Record of Service forms on the Academic Booster Club site on the SHS website and on the forms page of the Student Services tab on the SHS website.  In these areas of the SHS website, you can also access an information form which sets forth the hour thresholds for each of the awards and step-by-step instructions.

DEADLINE for setting up the account, logging in hours and turning in the completed Record of Service forms is April 15, 2015.
