Low-income students in Kentucky to get help with AP testing fees

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Low-income high school students in Kentucky will get some help with their payments for Advanced Placement tests. 

The Kentucky Department of Education will spend $800,000 to cover testing fees for those who qualify for free and reduced lunches. 

State law requires that the $53 fee be covered, so students can earn college credit. 

Until now, the state used federal grants to cover the expense.
