AP Computer Science Principles introduces students to the foundational concepts of computer science and challenges them to explore how computing and technology can impact the world. More than a traditional introduction to programming, it is a rigorous, engaging, and approachable course that explores many of the foundational ideas of computing so all students understand how these concepts are transforming the world we live in.
Students will be completing all of the coursework in the Code.org platform.
In the Business Department we utilize the following marks in the grade book:
- X Indicates the student is exempt from the assignment/assessment
- Z Indicates that the student has not completed and submitted the assignment but they are still able to.
- 0 Indicates that the students has missed the deadline for completing/submitting the assignment and has received a zero.
It is the policy of the Business Department that late work is accepted up to 2 weeks from the due date without a late penalty. After that, a zero will be given and the student will not be able to make up the assignment unless extenuating circumstances have been discussed with the administrative staff at the high school and approved.
