Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the School Code to require all public high schools to offer to their students at least one advanced placement course in mathematics and one advanced placement course in English. Effective July 1, 2006.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (Ill. State Board of Education)
 Has no fiscal impact on the Illinois State Board of Education. There are 665 public high schools in Illinois, with 328 offering AP courses and 337 offering no AP coursework. HB 4409 would require the schools offering no AP coursework to provide two courses not currently part of their curriculum, as well as force high schools that may be offering AP coursework in one of the two areas to provide an additional course. High schools may incur the cost of an additional teacher or teachers, the cost of course materials, and potentially the cost of taking AP tests (which are $82 per test).
