Advanced Placement exams are still going to be conducted in school buildings for certain students according to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. They have released their plan as to how to issue the AP exams, yet not spread COVID-19 infection. It is up to local schools to make sure the rules are followed.
According to their plan, students and staff will be required to wear face coverings at all times. All students and staff must apply hand sanitizer upon entering the building. Students will be monitored by staff while in the building while still maintaining social distance. Social distancing standards of at least 6 feet will be maintained before, during, and after test administration.
How will they protect students and staff from contracting COVID-19 from the beginning of the AP exams to end? Check back here as we will list how they plan on achieving this goal. Their AP testing plan may be a sign of what is to come for everyone once they decide to open up schools again for all students.
