Created by Annimills LLC © 2019 The Julian News 7 September 18, 2019 Solution page 12 College-bound students can save time and money by taking advanced placement classes while still in high school. (NAPS)—The Advanced Placement (AP) Program gives students a chance to experience college-level classes in high school and opens the door to earning college credit before they ever set foot on campus. Students get to dig deeper into subjects they love, while building the skills and confidence they Exciting Changes Coming To The Advanced Placement Program need to succeed in college. There are more statewide and system-wide AP credit policies than ever; over 99 percent of colleges have an AP credit policy in place. And, regardless of a student’s AP Exam score, taking AP courses can have a positive affect on their college applications. Admissions officers un-derstand that college faculty play a big role in developing AP courses, so they know students who took AP pushed themselves to take challenging, college-level courses. New Resources Beginning this school year, the AP Program is providing all AP students with free digital practice resources. A new question bank will help students master content and skills with real AP questions that their teacher assigns. Personal progress checks will give students real-time evaluations of their work with helpful score explanations. And, the tools are mobile-friendly— so they’re accessible anytime, anywhere. Other Changes To increase their chances of success, students can register for AP Exams beginning in the fall. The exams will still take place in May. More than half of schools that offer AP ask students to commit to taking the exam in the fall, boosting their chance of earning a score that translates to college credit. The exam fee and the fee reduction aren’t changing for the 2019-20 school year. However, there are two new fees—one for late registration and another for canceling the exam. These fees encourage students to commit to the exams early and stay engaged throughout the year. Schools will provide students with directions on how to register and will place the exam order for students. Getting Ready To access new online AP classroom resources and register for AP Exams this fall, students will need to join a class section online. That requires access to their College Board account. All College Board programs are connected through one account, so students who created one for AP, PSAT/NMSQT, SAT, or College Board Opportunity Scholarships, are all set. They’ll just need their user name and password to sign in. Students who don’t have an account, can sign up at collegeboard.org/register. Parents shouldn’t create accounts for their students—and account information should be held in a safe place. More Information Students and parents can visit www.apstudents.collegeboard. org for additional information on the AP Program, AP credit policies, digital tools, and AP Exam registration. For A Purpose- Driven ROI, Partner With Those On The Front Lines by Rick Shadyac continued on page 10 (NAPS)—My greatest hope from last week’s historic Business Roundtable proclamation cementing the changing concerns of some of the world’s top business leaders is that this statement becomes reality. This idea that corporations deliver more than profits deserves our attention, respect, and for those who can, help. Unsurprisingly and perhaps understandably, there are cynics and doubters, but still, the statement of governance, the one with nearly 200 CEOs signatures promising a more compassionate, broader and intergenerational take on stakeholder value is an essential first step for our communities— current and future—that fall under this expanded definition. “The American dream is alive, but fraying,” said Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co and Chairman of the Business Roundtable in support of the shifting priorities he and his peers outlined for the pro-business lobby, which had not amended its shareholder value statement since 1997. The intervening two decades have seen a collective cry for a more purpose-driven society while, according to recent research published by the Harvard Business Review, companies with higher levels of purpose outperform the market by 5 percent to 7 percent per year. (These are business folks after all.) As the CEO for the last 10 years of America’s largest healthcare charity, ALSAC— the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Chil- dren’s Research Hospital—I know a lot about dreams crushed and dreams fulfilled. St. Jude has answered many a parent’s prayer for their child’s return to health from a catastrophic illness such as cancer, and has done so with blind equity at the heart of our mission. Since opening our doors in 1962, we’ve treated thousands of patients regardless of race, country of origin or creed, and at no cost to the families—many of whom would never be able to pay for the treatments, travel, housing and more that’s required of this journey that we cover thanks to generous donors. For many of our families, the American dream never existed, was never in reach. And when they leave us, they face that reality anew. The business leaders who have put their names to paper, as our country’s founders once did, are theoretically accountable now to their words and an ROI that isn’t just measured by profit. I applaud them for the bravery of their action and hope this laudable statement becomes reality. The pursuit of purpose alongside bottom line revenue and traditionally defined shareholder return is the more difficult, yet rewarding path. The journey ahead for them will be extraordinary; a test against the cynics and nonbelievers. But each can take solace knowing the status quo is not an immovable object when faced with the tenacity of genuine purpose. I hope they’ll channel our founder, Danny Thomas, who never wavered despite many in the medical community resolute in their beliefs he was wasting his time trying to save cancer-stricken children; that the challenge would ultimately break his heart. The manifold survivorship success of St. Jude over five decades has proved false
