LAWRENCE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The Lawrence County School System is preparing to expand their advanced placement classes.

Superintendent Heath Grimes made the announcement Thursday morning.

The state's A+ College Ready program is providing grant money to allow for more AP, or advanced placement, classes. It's the first time an Alabama school system has had all of its high schools accepted into A+ at the same time.

That means students will be able to choose between 20-25 math, science and English classes this fall instead of just one or two.

"We lost most of our AP classes during proration. We were slowly putting those back on our own accord. But, now we can do that much faster," Grimes said.

The school system, however, will still have to pay for the textbooks needed for the advanced placement courses.
