Instructional materials for AP Courses
Selection of AP Materials
When new materials are required, Irving Independent School District assembles a team of educators to review and evaluate possible selections, much as it does when adopting materials for general education courses.
In recent years, the following model has been in place:
Students in AP Science courses have access to a class set of print materials and digital materials on a 1-1 basis
Students in all other AP courses have access to print and digital materials on a 1-1 basis
We are moving towards a different model:
All students will have digital access, and print materials will be provided as an accommodation.
Lifespan of materials
Currently, the projected lifespan of AP materials is 6 years print and digital, whereas a standard state-driven adoption for general education is planned to last 8 years.
