Each of Cobb County’s 16 high schools received $1,400 grant awards last month from the Georgia Department of Education to train teachers for Advanced Placement instruction. Teachers from 207 Georgia schools will participate in the 2012 AP Summer Institutes, which include 30+ hours of subject-specific professional development. AP courses help better prepare students for post-secondary studies. Just a few weeks ago, the state recognized 15 Cobb schools among its 2012 AP Honor Schools for overall achievement on AP tests and for increasing access to AP coursework to more students.
