Chico school district makes 'honor roll'

The Chico Unified School District is being recognized for the academic success of its high school students.

The district is one of only 547 in the nation placed by the College Board on the Advanced Placement Honor Roll.

Districts get placed on the Honor Roll by increasing the number of students who take the AP exam, while at the same time increasing how many students who get a grade of three or higher on a five point scale. The Chico Unified School District has been able to increase both numbers since 2012.

Kelly Staley, Superintendent for Chico Unified said "this honor is a direct result of students, teachers, parents and the community recognizing and valuing the rigorous academic work involved in Advanced Placement courses as well as the sense of pride and confidence students gain from their involvement in the program".
