Nevada gets $436K to help students afford AP tests

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Nevada is getting nearly half a million dollars to help low- and middle-income students take Advanced Placement classes and the AP tests. Senate

Majority Leader Harry Reid announced a $436,000 federal grant to the Nevada Department of Education on Tuesday.

The Advanced Placement program allows students to take college-level courses at their high schools. Students who pass the accompanying tests are often eligible for college credit for the course.

Reid says the grant will ensure students of all backgrounds can access the classes and the tests.
