Final exams in English, social studies, math, science and world language occur on scheduled exam days. Students report only to exams for which they are scheduled. When students will miss a final exam due to an excused absence, they must obtain administrative approval to reschedule the exam. If a student is absent for a final exam during the first semester due to illness, they will receive an incomplete. A meeting with the counselor and the teacher will determine how many days they have to make up the missed exam when they come back. If a student is absent during a final exam for the second semester due to illness, they will receive an incomplete and will have to come in to school over the summer and take the exam (administered by a member of the administrative team). For extensive absences, those that might prevent a student from performing well on the final exam, a meeting with the counselor and administrative team will determine if the student will be exempt from the final exam.
Senior Final Exams Policy
Seniors who earn a letter grade of “A” for each marking period of a course will be eligible for exemption from the final exam in that course and will receive a final grade of “A.” Final exam exemption does not apply to final projects in courses.
