Rockton - Changes are coming to a high school test affecting students across the county and one local teacher will be a part of it.
James Sabathne, a history teacher at Hononegah, was appointed by the College Board to revamp the Advanced Placement test for U.S. History. He says it's the first time major changes will be made to it in more than 30 years.
Based on how a student performs on an AP test, it determines if they get college credit for that class while they're still in high school. "It's somewhat daunting as a task the idea of being on a small committee of people that are working on an exam students will take around the entire country" says Sabathne. "But, it's very rewarding."
The changes to the exam will take effect in 2015.
