Brazos Independent School District (ISD) recognizes the hard work and dedication of its teachers and staff members, and Chad Divin is no exception. Chad is a teacher at Brazos High School who was selected to be an AP Program Reader by the Educational Testing Service. The AP (Advanced Placement) Program Reader is an experienced educator who is selected to evaluate the performance of high school students who have taken an Advanced Placement course. The AP Program is a college-level program that offers high school students the opportunity to take college-level courses and potentially earn college credit while still in high school. The AP Program Reader is responsible for scoring students’ AP exams, which are designed to assess students’ mastery of the course content. The AP Program Readers are carefully selected by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) and are typically experienced teachers who have a deep understanding of the course content and the standards for student performance. The AP Program Reader’s role is critical to the success of the AP Program and ensures that students receive a fair and accurate evaluation of their performance.  Chad’s selection as a reader reflects his commitment to providing students with a fair and rigorous evaluation of their mastery of the college-level coursework.
