									                         Advanced Placement Contract
The purpose of the advanced placement class is to help students prepare for college. At
the same time it gives the student the opportunity to place out of certain college courses,
thus saving money and time. The course will be taught at a faster pace than the normal
high school art course with higher level of thinking skills and outside projects museum
trips (on personal time) and readings. Because of the nature of the course the time and
energy needed to complete it successfully. There are set criteria for this class that must be
met in order to receive AP credit for the semester.

      that may be controversial. I am aware that I will be required to purchase
