Advanced Placement Summer Institute (APSI)


The North Dakota Legislative Assembly appropriated funding for the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction (NDDPI) to continue to support professional development for North Dakota Advanced Placement (AP) instructors.

This is an opportunity to offer high-quality professional development for AP instructors to attend an AP Summer Institute (APSI). The NDDPI will reimburse selected instructors for their travel costs to attend a National Math + Science Institute (NMSI) sponsored training in their curricular area.
