    Opting Out and Getting A Refund

    ALL students who choose to opt out of taking AP exam(s) and receive a refund, should complete the Opt Out Google form for Ms. Davenport's records.

    If you paid by cash or check you MUST ALSO complete (and return digitally) this KCS Refund Form to Ms. Davenport.

    NO money can be refunded until the KCS form is returned!

    Form deadline: Thursday, May 28 at 9 AM. NO Exceptions.

    Forms recieved after this time will be refunded in August 2020.

    • It must have a parent/guardian name AND parent/guardian signature. This is KCS Bookkeeping Policy.
    • Also include the AP student's name to the side.
    • If you already submitted a form that is missing a parent/guardian name AND parent/guardian signature, please email Ms. Davenport the corrected form.
    • Only fill out the top half of the form. Ms. Davenport will complete the bottom half.
    • We will begin issuing refund checks when regular testing dates are complete (no sooner than May 22).

    Thank for for your patience while we figure this out.

    How do I fill this form out online?
    You have a few options:
    1. If you have access to a printer, you can print it, fill it out and email Ms. Davenport a screenshot
    2. You can use Preview on a Mac, Adobe Reader (a free download), any other PDF viewer/editor or photo editing tools to add text to the PDF or image.
    3. You can use your phone's photo editing/markup tools to add text and a signature.
    4. You can 'sign' the form by typing. A hand-written signature is not required.

    5. Email the edited image/screenshot to me at Emily.davenport@knoxschools.org

    What if I can't fill it out online?

    Call the school office at 865-933-3434 and schedule an appointment to pick up and fillout a form in person. It must have a parent/guardian signature to be valid

    What if I paid online?

    You still need to fill out the Opt Out Google form for Ms. Davenport's records and your refund will be automatically returned to the original payment source when regular testing dates are complete (no sooner than May 22)

     

    What about my five points?

    ALL AP grades should have the 5 points added for the 2019-20, whether the students register or sit for the online exam.  Per the grading policy, "students can earn the additional weighting (additional points added to final grade) for AP, IB....without the requirement to sit for the culminating exams.  This applies only to courses with exams given at the end of the Spring 2020 semester". This would include any AP courses taken in the fall with the exam given in May. 

    You will still get your five points for fall and spring AP courses even if you don't take the exam.
