More Hayward students taking advanced placement
Hayward Unified School District was named to the College Board’s advanced placement honor roll.
School districts had to increase the percentage of students taking part in advanced placement and also the number of students earning an exam score of 3 or higher.
The number of Hayward students taking the exam went up by 9.2 percent, and the district increased the number of students scoring 3 or higher by 13 percent.
The district also had to increase or maintain the percentage of African-American, Latino and Native American students scoring at least 3 on one advanced placement exam.
According to national data, only about half of African-American, Latino and Native American students who qualify for advanced placement take part. Hayward plans to use a grant to pay the cost of the advanced placement for all its students.
Hayward is one of 433 school districts in the United States and Canada named to the honor roll.
