DECATUR, Ga. — Students at Decatur High School are going to have to start paying for their Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exams.
Until now, the district has paid for all students to take the tests, but the school’s principal says it is no longer feasible for the district to continue to pay.
The change goes into effect next school year.

Last year, the exams cost the district almost $250,000.
The school’s principal said scholarships and payment plans will be available.
