Logan County High School has been recognized as one of 10 AdvanceKentucky schools that was named on the AP District Honor Roll.

Included in the fourth annual AP Honor Roll were 13 districts from Kentucky, 10 of which have schools in the AdvanceKentucky program (up from five last year). The other nine are: Bracken County, Fayette County, Floyd County, Madison County, Marion County, Marshall County, McLean County, Murray Independent, and Pulaski County.

Each received the award for simultaneously increasing access to Advanced Placement course work while increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams.

The College Board recognized 477 school districts from the US and Canada as being AP District Honor Roll recipients.

Inclusion on the Annual AP District Honor Roll is based on the examination of three years of AP data for the following criteria:

Districts must:

1. Increase participation/access to AP by at least 4 percent in large districts, at least 6 percent in medium districts and at least 11 percent in small districts;

2. Ensure that the percentage of African American, Hispanic/Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Native students taking AP Exams did not decrease by more than 5 percent for large and medium districts or by more than 10 percent for small districts;

3. Improve performance levels when comparing the percentage of students in 2012 scoring a 3 or higher to those in 2010, unless the district has already attained a performance level in which more than 70 percent of the AP students are scoring a 3 or higher.

In 2012, Kentucky doubled the number of schools on the 3rd honor roll with five AdvanceKentucky school districts recognized: Bourbon County Schools, Clinton County Schools, Fayette County Public Schools, Pulaski County Schools, and Washington County Schools.

In 2011, the following districts made the 2nd Annual Honor Roll: Anderson County School District, Barren County School District, Christian County Public Schools, and Graves County School District.

In 2010, for the inaugural Honor Roll, College Board awarded this distinction to 3 AdvanceKentucky school districts: Barren County School District, Marion County Public School District, and Simpson County School District.
