    2016 SDHS Summer School Application

    Exam Exemption Policy

    Seniors who are eligible for exemption cannot be required to take an exam. If a senior who is eligible for exemption elects to take the exam, the grade must count and be recorded.

    Individual classes determine senior exam exemptions by semester. Criteria for exemptions are as follows:

    1st/2nd Term – All students
    Any student with no more than four (4) absences in a yearlong class, two (2) absences in a semester class, and/or one (1) absence in a nine-week class will have his/her lowest major test grade dropped in the calculation of his/her class average. This does not include local/state EOCs, dual enrollment, International Baccalaureate, or Advanced Placement exams. The definition/determination of “major test” is left to the discretion of the teacher.

    2nd Term – Seniors Only
    Second term seniors who have no more than two absences per class and a minimum of a “76” average may opt out of the final exam. A student may not be exempt from a state EOC. A student who does not take and AP/IB exam will be required to take the teacher-created final exam.

    AP/IB Final Exam Exemption
    AP/IB students may choose to be exempt from the final semester exam by taking the AP/IB national exam. In the event students miss or choose not to take the AP/IB exam, they will then be required to take the teacher-created course exam.

    College Visits
    Juniors and seniors are allowed two days per year for college visits. These will be counted as excused absences. Visits must be arranged through the school counseling office.

    KCS announces South-Doyle High a Winner of School Technology Challenge
    Award Dr. Jim McIntyre, Superintendent of the Knox County Schools, recently announced the winning schools of the School Technology Challenge, which is an internal competition for selected schools to begin a 1:1 technology effort (one technology device for each one student, and each one teacher). Interested schools went through an application process, and a total of 28 schools applied for consideration in this pilot initiative.
    “We believe selecting a small, representative sample of schools to embrace instructional technology will leverage the creativity and expertise within our schools, build capacity for future expansion, and demonstrate success in schools across our community,” McIntyre said. “With this initiative, parents, teachers, stakeholders and taxpayers will be able to see how instructional technology is enhancing education right in their own neighborhood.”
