SEMESTER EXAM POLICY.  Plan now for December and May!

  • All classes will give a semester exam each semester.
  • Students can exempt exams based on the following criteria:
    • A average in the class for the semester and no unexcused absences.
    • B average in the class for the semester and not more than 1 absence; the absence must be excused
  • Students must take a minimum of one core exam if they meet the exemption criteria for all classes.
  • Students who accumulate seven (7) unexcused tardies to school in a semester will not be allowed to exempt any semester exams.
  • Students with out-of-school suspension absences will not be eligible to exempt semester exams.
  • Students taking AP courses must take the AP test.  This will serve as the requirement for taking a minimum of one core exam if they meet the criteria for exemption in all core courses.  Students with an class average below 70 will be required to take the semester exam.  
  • Students taking dual enrollment courses must take a final exam for the course. This will serve as the requirement for taking a one core exam if they meet the criteria for exemption in all core courses.
