Exam Schedule and Exemption Information
Exams will be administered from Monday, December 17th through Friday, December 20th.
The timeline for receiving and completing the paperwork necessary to exempt exams has changed. Individual exemption forms will be available starting Monday, December 9, 2013 rather than Friday, December 6. These forms will be due by the end of the day Friday, December 13 rather than Wednesday, December 11.
Reminder: any student with a financial obligation may not exempt their exams until their obligation is satisfied. Obligation reports will still be available on Friday, December 6 for those who would like to resolve that issue in order to begin their exemption paperwork next week. See Mrs. Perkins in the Main Office for your report if your name appears on the obligation list posted in the Student Center and 1100 Hallway.
Click on the links below to get the exam schedule and important exam exemption instructions. This information will be shared with students by all teachers in the coming weeks in hopes of answering any questions students may have regarding exemptions. The paragraphs below explain the grade level differences where exemptions are concerned. If you have any questions concerning exemptions please contact your student's grade level or alpha office.
Open the attachment entitled "Absence Codes" for a list of codes which count for exemption purposes.
For exemption purposes only, three tardies count as an absence no matter where they occur across the schedule. Students in 9th – 11th grade may be exempt from up to three non-EOC tested course exams per semester for classes in which they meet the guidelines. The guidelines are as follows: students must have a semester average of 85 or above, have no more than two absences that semester from that class, and are present on the exam days when attendance is taken. Students will be required to take first semester exams in the fall in all EOC subjects; however they will not be required to take a spring semester final in EOC subjects.
Students in 12th grade may be exempt from three semester exams for classes in which they have a semester average of 85 or above and have no more than two absences that semester from that class, and are present on the exam days when attendance is taken. Seniors and juniors may have up to four absences when two of those absences are the absences allowed for visiting colleges and universities. Only two days for college visits are allowed per year (see College Visits)."
Reminder: Notes for all absences must be turned into the attendance office within 48 hours of an absence.
