Maybe the Chatham school board should have considered the timing of the AP exams

The school administration presented a draft calendar at the January 11 board meeting. I think the board should have considered the timing of the AP exams more – there was a little discussion, but the board unanimously decided to go with this calendar because the administration recommended it and the plurality of survey respondents chose it. (That detail isn’t in the minutes, but I was at the meeting and remember the discussion.) As the mother of sons who took many AP exams, I understand that this is a bad idea – I would have moved spring break a week earlier.
