The Texas Education Agency posted information on May 1st relating to the Texas Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate Incentive Program-Funded Components for School Year 2013-2014. 

A quick snapshot of the posting :

“Funding allocated to the Texas AP/IB Incentive Program by the 83rd Texas Legislature will enable the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to fund the following two components for the 2013-2014 school year.

•    Test Fee Subsidies—TEA will provide a $30 test fee subsidy for each AP or IB exam taken by eligible Texas public school students. To be eligible for this incentive program component, students must have taken an authorized AP or IB course in the 2013-2014 school year or be recommended by their principals to take the exam and must demonstrate financial need as determined in accordance with guidelines adopted by the State Board of Education that are consistent with the definition of financial need adopted by the College Board or the International Baccalaureate Organization.

•    Teacher Training Reimbursements: TEA will fund teacher training reimbursements of up to $450 per eligible teacher who completes a TEA-approved training. The amount of the teacher training reimbursement will be dependent upon the total number of eligible applicants and the amount of funding available after the payment of exam fee subsidies. ”
