Peach school board approves more AP class offerings

Students at Peach County High School will have more Advanced Placement options next year after the board of education approved additional courses Tuesday during its regular meeting.

Peach County currently offers six Advanced Placement courses, and that number is expected to increase to eight next academic year and to 13 during the 2014-15 school year. Five additional educators will be trained this year to teach those extra courses. Next year, students will be able to take AP courses in world history, biology, chemistry, calculus, statistics, microeconomics, English literature and composition, and American government and politics.

The board also approved a class size waiver, which will allow the district to expand the maximum number of students in classes, if necessary.
