[ap-calculus] Insight into AP Calculus offerings

My school district is looking into offering AP Calculus for next
school year. We currently offer Calculus 1 and 2 as part of a
concurrent enrollment with a university. I'm looking for some
comments on the following:

1. Does your school offer AP Calculus as well as a concurrent
enrollment program? Are they the same class or two different classes?

2. To increase our AP enrollment we discussed teaching AB Calculus
along with necessary precalculus topics in a class meeting for a
double period daily. This would allow students completing Algebra 2/
Trig their junior year to enroll in calculus as a senior. Does
anyone have any experience with such a model?

In advance, I thank you for your thoughts. Feel free to reply to me
off the listserv.
