Possible School Course Changes Spark Concern

J.H. Rose High School in Greenville has received nationwide recognition for its advanced placement program. Now, school officials are considering some changes. Rose senior and A.P. student Everette Warren says the school is considering removing some A.P. classes from the core curriculum and making them electives instead. Pitt County School officials declined to be interviewed, but did say they are committed to communicating with parents and students next week before making a final decision. Warren says the depth of study and possible college credit offered by the A.P. courses are vital.
