CALENDAR OF EVENTS
In accordance with Governor Inslee's Stay Home, Stay Safe Declaration - the LC offices are closed, but all administrators, counselors, teachers, and office staff are available via email. Please contact us if you need anything. The LC email directory can be found here: https://www.spokaneschools.org/domain/1653
FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE
Last night, Spokane Public Schools hosted two webinars for seniors. In it, district officials gave updates to grading policies, credits, fees and fines as we know them, textbooks, and other items of general interest. The principals from all area high schools large and small were also “there” virtually on the Zoom, ready to answer questions about classes and completion of the school year.

But two topics absolutely dominated the hours; in-person graduation possibilities and some sort of IRL prom.

We’d anticipated that The Walk across the stage as a name is called to the joy of cheering family members was going to be at the forefront of student minds, and we’d guessed that seniors would want to know of any glimmers of hope that they might get to get dressed up and dance the night away in June… or July… or maybe even in December?

What struck me, though, and what I’d not sufficiently anticipated, was the sharpness of the seniors’ desire not just to walk, or dance, or be celebrated in any way.

They just want to be together one more time.

They want to walk through the hallways of school, see their teachers and coaches, see the faces of classmates destined to go in so many different directions very soon.

It’s the people they most miss.

We are working on a Virtual event that will replicate the spirit of the Move Out Con, the barbeque, the breakfast. We are working to make sure yearbooks are distributed and honor cords and medals, too, in some sort of government-approved fashion at the end of May.

We continue to monitor local health district dictates (God love our doctors, nurses, all med staffs, and first-responder, by the way. Heroes all. We are so fortunate for the robustly committed and brilliant leaders in our medical community. THANK YOU for putting students and teachers and families in your Circle of Care these past weeks. We are so grateful.) And if at any point they approve any sort of cleverly masked and socially-distant walk through of school or tour of new building, we will absolutely and only invite our seniors to take part.

And if we don’t get that chance, we will continue to love our seniors through every goofy virtual venue we can create, every sign we can post, call we can make, article we can write, meeting we can Zoom, webinar we can attend, and yard sign we can pound.

Be safe and be well, and some day, as soon as we can make it so, be back.

IMPORTANT AP EXAM UPDATES
AP Testing Updates (previous AP details can be found further down in the email):

ACTION STEP : Log into your College Board account to make sure you can get in: https://apstudents.collegeboard.org . If you can't get in even after trying to recover your user name/password, contact Mrs. Meyer ASAP!

IMPORTANT!!!!! Exam Times: In your College Board account, they are listing the exams with Eastern Standard Time. We are in the Pacific Standard Time zone - our exams are -3 hours different from EST. Use the AP Calendar (scroll down in this email) to find your exam time - OUR CALENDAR HAS THE CORRECT TIMES FOR YOUR EXAMS . If you miss the window, you will not be able to log in to a different time zone, so don't rely on the time listed on the web site. Your teachers will also send you reminders on the correct time for your exams.

Students Practicing Exam Submission Online: Students who wish to practice submitting and using the platform on which they will take their AP Exams will have the opportunity to do this beginning May 4 by going to the website https://ap2020examdemo.collegeboard.org/?excmpid=mtg638-2-gd . You will have unlimited practice with the process, but there will not be any practice questions - this site is only for you to become comfortable with how you will take the exam. You still find practice questions in your MyAP account. Type in the word PRACTICE when it asks for your AP ID (your real AP ID number will come from College Board 2 days before your first test to the email you used to create your account). If you try to use multiple devices ( specifically a computer to read the questions and submit responses and a phone to take pictures of written work and email to themselves to upload on the computer ), it is important that you only log into the exam on ONE device . There is a possibility of “lag time” in sending photos/attachments/etc. between devices in the 5 minute window to upload. Practice on this site to make sure you are comfortable with the process. Do not wait until test day to do this!

AP Exam Fees: Students do not have to formally “opt out” of the exam if you are registered. By not taking the exam, you will get a refund. BUT, if you log into the exam on your test day and then decide to not take it, you WILL NOT GET A REFUND . So, if you have decided in consultation with your family and AP teacher that you are not going to take the exam, do not log in or you will not get a refund. This is a College Board policy, not an LC policy.

2020 AP Testing Guide: The guide ( https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/pdf/ap-testing-guide-2020.pdf ) provides information to help you prepare. You are encouraged to read through the entire document and if you have questions, ask your teacher. If you can't get the answer you need, email Mrs. Meyer . Here are the topics covered:
  • The AP Exam E-Ticket

Information for AP French, Japanese, and Spanish Language Exams: These exams will be administered using a new dedicated app, the AP World Languages Exam App . Students taking these exams must use this app on smartphones or tablets . This free app will be available for download from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store the week of May 11 . We’ll email students and their teachers to let them know when the app is available to download. Visit College Board for more details.

We are also working on a plan to distribute yearbooks to students who have already paid - stayed tuned for more details!
AP Testing Updates from the College Board: Check your email that you used when you set up your AP account for updates directly from College Board. LC and your teachers will continue to send you AP Testing updates as well.

Exam Dates:
  • Exams will be given from May 11-22 as a take a 45-minute online exam at home
  • Makeup test dates will be available for each subject from June 1-5 but you must apply with College Board (see the 2020 AP testing guide referenced above). Please note that College Board has very specific and limited reasons to allow late exams).
  • Students can take exams at home. If school reopens, the exam will be taken at LC
  • Each subject's exam will be taken on the same day at the same time, worldwide - View the full testing schedule

Exam Format:
  • Most exams will have one or two free-response questions, and each question will be timed separately. Students will need to write and submit their responses within the allotted time for each question.
  • Students will be able to take exams on any device they have access to - computer, tablet, or smartphone. They'll be able to type and upload their responses or write responses by hand and submit a photo via their cell phones. (SPS can provide laptops - fill out the form at: spokaneschools.org/LaptopCheckout)
  • For most subjects, the exams will be 45 minutes long, plus an additional 5 minutes for uploading. Students will need to access the online testing system 30 minutes early to get set up.
  • AP Photo and AP Studio Art will use portfolio submissions and will not have a separate online exam. All deadlines for these submissions have been extended to May 26, 2020, 11:59pm ET. Teachers and students may receive separate course-specific communications.
  • Students taking world language and culture exams will complete two spoken tasks consistent with free-response questions 3 and 4 on the current AP Exam. Written responses will not be required. We'll provide additional details in the coming weeks to help students prepare.
  • Tips for testing on specific devices will be available in late April.

Exam Scores and College Credit:
  • As usual, students' work will be scored by our network of college faculty and AP teachers, and will be reported on a 1–5 scale. We anticipate releasing scores as close to the usual July time frame as possible.
  • College Board has spoken with hundreds of institutions across the country that support our solution for this year's AP Exams.

Exam Security
  • Like many college-level exams, this year's AP Exams will be open book/open note. The exam format and questions are being designed specifically for an at-home administration, so points will not be earned from content that can be found in textbooks or online. However, students taking the exams may not consult with any other individuals during the testing period. College Board will take the necessary steps to protect the integrity of each exam administration, as we do every year.
  • For the small number of students who may try to gain an unfair advantage, College Board has a comprehensive and strict set of protocols in place to prevent and detect cheating. While some of these practices are confidential to maximize their effectiveness, students and education professionals can learn more about our security measures.
  • At a minimum, test takers should understand that those attempting to gain an unfair advantage will either be blocked from testing or their AP scores will be canceled, and their high school will be notified as will colleges or other organizations to which the student has already sent any College Board scores (including SAT scores). And they may be prohibited from taking a future Advanced Placement Exam as well as the SAT, SAT Subject Tests, or CLEP assessments.

Remote Instruction and Practice:
  • On March 25, College Board began offering free live AP review courses, delivered by AP teachers from across the country. The courses have been viewed more than 3.2 million times since they became available. On-demand lessons are now available for Art and Design.
  • In addition to sharing information about these classes with students, teachers who are providing remote instruction can use AP Classroom for most subjects. Additional tips for helping your students practice are available.

Choosing to Not Take the AP Exam:
  • We encourage our students to take the exams this year because of all of their hard work and preparation. All of the AP exams will only cover material that students covered prior to the closure. But, we understand that circumstances may cause students to not take the exam.
  • With the changes this year, cancellations will be handled differently this year. After the regular testing window and make-up window, College Board will let us know who did not take the exam. Those students will be issued a refund through the LC Business Office - and there will be NO cancellation fee. We will work to issue refunds as quickly as possible, but the process will take time. There is nothing else a student or parent needs to do. We will communicate out when the process begins to the impacted students.

If you have any AP Testing Questions, please feel free to email Theresa Meyer at theresam@spokaneschools.org

AP Schedule: please note, the College Board web site lists only the Eastern Standard Time for exams. In Spokane, we are Pacific Standard Time (-3 hours from EST). The schedule below is when our exams will be and when you will need to log in to take the exams.
Fall 2020 Schedules: Our draft Fall 2020 schedules are now available on PowerSchool for students to view. These schedules are in very early DRAFT form and we have 94% of students fully scheduled (we are working on this every day to get to 100%). The next step is to ensure that all students have the correct and desired classes by logging into PowerSchool to check that the right classes are assigned and that nothing has been missed (click on Next Year’s Schedule, then look at the Matrix view - works best on a computer, the app doesn't show next year's classes). Please read the information below on how scheduling and change requests work :
  • If you don’t know how to get into PowerSchool, email theresam@spokaneschools.org.
  • If you have a hole in your schedule, that means you are one of the 6% that have scheduling issues. We are moving classes around to fix as many issues as possible. If we cannot find a solution, we will be emailing you directly to find a solution (the email will go to your MS365 account). This process will take time, so we thank you for your patience.
  • Your classes are confirmed, but the periods and teachers WILL change many times over the next few months. Sorry, but we cannot promise specific teachers or periods due to the fluidity of the schedule and very full classes. Please try to not get attached to a specific schedule because it will change every day (maybe even every hour). Note: There may still be a few classes that will be collapsed due to low enrollment. If you are in one of those classes, you will be put into one of your alternates.
  • If you signed up to be an Intern (Seniors only), we haven't assigned specific periods to that class yet. Over the next few weeks, you'll see it move into periods 1-6.
  • For errors or change requests: 1) if you need counselor support regarding the change, begin by emailing your counselor, or 2) if it is a straight forward change, you can email theresam@spokaneschools.org. You can see the changes reflected in PowerSchool once they are made. If a change cannot be made due to period conflicts or full classes, we will let you know.
  • MANY of our electives are full, which is why you may have been moved into an alternate elective that you entered into PowerSchool when you selected your classes in January. We cannot promise that we can get you into specific electives. If you were moved out of an elective that you need for graduation (ex. you are going to be a senior and you registered for CTE because you need the credit but you were moved into Art, please explain that in your request).
  • If you are a choice student from outside Spokane Public Schools, you will not be able to see your schedule online because you are considered "pre-registered" and there is a glitch that doesn't show your schedule. You can theresam@spokaneschools.org and a copy will be sent via email (but it will change many times).
  • If you are planning on taking SVL, please go online to register soon to ensure a spot at www.spokanevirtual.com. There may be some changes coming for SVL registration with the closure, when we know more, we will let you know. For now, SVL is listed on schedules as “pending”, in August, the real SVL courses will be merged into PowerSchool. If you no longer want to take the SVL class, email theresam@spokaneschools.org. Information about SVL registration can be found further down in the email.
  • If you are planning on enrolling in Running Start at the college, please contact your counselor to begin the process. Once you have a confirmed schedule, it is important to let us know that we can drop your LC classes (we understand that this process might be delayed as well due to the colleges being closed for now).

REMINDERS
Follow Us: Follow us on Facebook and YouTube !
District Logins for Students: When students return for the new school year, they will have one less username and password to remember. Students will log in to their computer with their Office365 username and their eight-digit birth date (MMDDYYYY).  For reference, students’ Office 365 username is their Last Name + last 4 digits of their student ID followed by @sps81.org . Example: Smith4543@sps81.org . Consistent with prior student experience, when a student logs in to their computer with this new username/password, this will automatically log them into Clever, Blackboard, Office 365 and most other District applications.
