Verona, NY (WIBX) – The Madison-Oneida BOCES will develop three online Advanced Placement courses, thanks to a recent grant from the state’s Virtual Advanced Placement Program.

The 18-month grant, worth $1.35 million, will be used to develop courses including AP English Literature and Composition, U.S. History and Calculus AB.

Tracy Rowlands is the Assistant Director at the Mohawk Regional Information Center at BOCES. She says program development will begin soon.

“We’ere going to be spending the next six to nine months creating the courses and creating the course content, working along with some local colleges to assure that our curriculum is aligned with higher education,” Rowlands said.

They will be implemented during the 2013-14 school year and are expected to work with about 300 students.

To allow students to connect to their classes anywhere at any time, tablet computers will also be purchased for students.

Madison-Oneida BOCES was only one of eight BOCES to receive a VAP grant, and only one of 17 state recipients total.
