March is Texas History Month

March is Texas History Month, a time to celebrate our state's unique history. Recognizing the importance of Texas history, the state legislature enacted legislation on June 20, 2003, declaring March 1-31 of every year as Texas History Month. Several key events which shaped the destiny of Texas occurred in the month of March: Texas Independence Day, Flag Day, and the birthday of Sam Houston on March 2; Alamo Heroes Day on March 6; and Goliad Heroes Day on March 27.

Please note that the SAT test that was to be administered on March 3rd has been rescheduled to March 24. The recent winter storm has held up the shipping of test documents. If you are a Junior who has already signed up for the test, please save Wednesday, March 24, 2021 as the new date for the SAT. Wednesday, March 3rd will be a regular school day.

The March 13th SAT has not been moved to a different date. School Day SAT testers had to register through the district in November of 2020 to test on March 24th. These testers have already been contacted by the CHS test coordinator regarding testing details. The March 13th SAT is for students who registered through College Board for the exam. Details for this exam can be found on the students' admission ticket.

AP Exams at Coppell High School

The registration deadline for AP exams was November 4th. We are not allowing late registration.

NEW! You can receive a full refund until April 1st for your exam(s). Full payment is still due by March 3rd. Non-payment will result in CHS not ordering your exam.

If you missed the deadline and still want to take the exam, you can find another local school who is allowing late registration. Flower Mound High School is no longer accepting out of school registration.

If you are able to find a school allowing late registration, you will log in to their Total Registration site (find the link on their website.) Register there for your exam(s) and select “independent study” or “exam only” or “no teacher,” depending on what the site offers as a choice. Your registration may have to be approved by the school’s test coordinator before you get your join code. Once you get your join code, you will register in MyAP using that join code. You will then test at that school for the AP exam. You must register/pay in Total Registration AND join your class in MyAP in order for any school to order your exam.
