CENTENNIAL – Nearly 20 students who took an AP exam at Eaglecrest High School in early May will have to choose whether to retake the test, take a projected score, or have their AP credits thrown out.

According to the Cherry Creek School District, a retired teacher who was administering the exam fell asleep during a portion of it. Students woke the teacher up and reported the incident to the school's assistant principal.

A district spokeswoman tells 9NEWS the district reported the incident to the College Board, which scores the exam. The spokeswoman said at the time College Board officials said there was no problem.

However, earlier this month, parents of the students received a letter claiming the test scores had been voided because of the incident and gave them a week to decide between the three options. The district said it received word of that letter from the College Board Monday morning.

The district said it will work with parents to comply with the College Board's request. 9NEWS reached out to the College Board which refused to comment and directed us to the school district.
