In schools and districts, it’s not only about the teachers who inspire and the students who rise to the challenge; it’s also about the AP Coordinators and counselors who perform all of the tasks of an exam administration, from ordering the tests to setting up the exam rooms, to coordinating the proctors and keeping all of the materials secure, to doing the crucial work of organizing their schools’ AP programs.
