Introduced in Senate (01/22/2001)

Access to High Standards Act - Amends the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 to establish Advanced Placement (AP) programs of assistance to increase the access of low-income students to AP high school courses and AP tests to earn advanced placement and credits at institutions of higher education.

Directs the Secretary of Education to award grants to: (1) State or local educational agencies (SEAs or LEAs) for activities to expand access for low-income individuals to AP incentive programs; (2) SEAs for subgrants to LEAs (especially those that serve high concentrations of low-income students, rural areas, and would not have such online access without assistance) to provide students with on-line AP courses; and (3) SEAs for AP incentive programs to reimburse low-income individuals for all or part of AP test fees.
