ATLANTA -- School officials are telling parents in a metro Atlanta school system they will have to pay for Advanced Placement exams under a policy change.
    
Southwest DeKalb High School Principal Carolyn Williams cites state budget cuts as one reason some parents will have to pay for the tests next year.
    
WSB-TV reports that Williams informed parents that the Georgia Department of Education's budget will fund only one exam for students from low-income families during the coming year, a change from previous years.
    
She said the state agency is unable to fund any exams for students who are not in the school system's free or reduced-price lunch program.
    
That means families must pick up the cost of the exams at $89 each, or $53 for students from low-income families.
