DESE and STEM Advanced Placement Access Opportunity:
With funding through a federal grant program, and via a partnership with nonprofit VHS Learning, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) has established the STEM Advanced Placement Access Expansion Opportunity (SAPAO), a statewide initiative designed to increase Massachusetts students’ participation in advanced coursework. SAPAO will provide eligible high schools with access to up to seven online AP® STEM courses free of charge. The highest priority has been placed on schools that traditionally have not had the capacity or resources to offer classes, and within those schools, the focus is on students who have been historically underrepresented in STEM. If you think SAPAO will complement your school’s existing work, or if you are a student and have questions about the program, please schedule a consultation with Jennifer Gwatkin (firstname.lastname@example.org) from the DESE Office for College, Career, and Technical Education.
