Cumulative exams will be given the final days of each semester. We ask that you avoid scheduling appointments during the final days of the semester because of review for and administration of final exams.

Exams will not be given early. Students will not be permitted to check out during an exam period. If a student misses an exam due to an excused reason, the exam can be taken on the announced make-up day. Students may not use pre-arranged absences on exam days.

Final Exam Exemption:

Exam exemption applies only to second semester graduating seniors. Exam exemption does NOT apply to state end-of-course exams. In order to exempt a final exam, graduating seniors must meet the following criteria:

Academics

Seniors who have a cumulative “A” average, 90.0 (not rounded) or greater, at the end of first semester may be eligible to exempt all exams if they meet the other criteria; OR Seniors who have an “A” average, 90.0 (not rounded) or greater, in a specific course may be eligible to exempt an exam in that course if they meet the other criteria.

Attendance

Seniors will NOT be eligible to exempt an exam in a class if they have more than FIVE absences in the class for the semester. All absences, except school sponsored activities count against the total of five. Students will be counted absent from class if they miss more than half a period.

Behavior

Seniors who have been suspended in or out of school during their final semester will NOT be eligible to exempt exams. Seniors may exempt all exams for which they qualify. Seniors who are eligible to exempt an exam must turn in textbooks prior to the exam day. Students must have clearance from the Media Center that they have no books outstanding. Seniors who are eligible to exempt an exam may choose to take the exam without the risk of lowering the final average. The exam can improve the average, but cannot lower it.
