CI: About AP Courses in Collaborative Partnerships

Intended Audience: Collaborative Instructors
This article pertains to courses taught by a local teacher as part of a collaborative partnership.


Advanced Placement (AP) courses offered through collaborative partnerships may differ from those taught by Michigan Virtual instructors. This article provides information on the distinctions between the two.

AP Courses Led by Michigan Virtual InstructorsAP Courses Taught by Local Teachers in Collaborative Partnerships
For AP courses taught by Michigan Virtual instructors, assignments will have specific due dates tied to their completion. Late submissions will be subject to penalties outlined in Michigan Virtual's AP Policy. These AP courses will not include pacing guides in the Student Learning Portals (SLPs). Instead, due dates will be directly populated into the courses, and students can view these dates through the Brightspace Calendar tool and on the class homepage.In the case of AP courses taught by local teachers through collaborative partnerships, due dates will be built into the courses. However, collaborative instructors have the flexibility to use, modify, delete, or ignore these due dates, as well as Michigan Virtual's AP Policy. While collaborative instructors are encouraged to follow Michigan Virtual's AP Policy, local policies and expectations set by the local teacher will take precedence. AP courses taught by collaborative instructors will not have pacing guides in the SLPs. Instead, a pacing guide will be provided within the course for instructors to use at their discretion. Instructors can choose to use the provided pacing guide as-is and share it with students, copy and edit it before sharing, or employ an alternate method to communicate pacing.
