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.
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.
