Exams and Exam Exemptions

All classes require a cumulative semester exam.  Students have the option of taking a semester exam even if they meet exemption parameters.  If a student chooses to take a final exam, when they meet exemption parameters, the grade will only be used if it improves their semester grade.  

Students may exempt a semester exam in a class if they have four or fewer tardy marks in the specific class for the semester (Blended only), no zeroes in the grade book for the semester, and no fines or fees for the class.  Tardies will be counted starting September 16th, 2020. 

Exemptions are allowed for all students each semester, except students in English I-III, Algebra, Geometry, Algebra II, Physical Science, Biology, Chemistry, World History, US History, Civics, and Economics are required to take a fall exam. This requirement applies to variations of each of these courses (Pre-AP, AP, IB, Accelerated, etc.).  

Appeals on exemptions should be directed to a campus principal.   Exemptions cannot be appealed past the campus level.  The campus principal's decision is final.

New Books in the Library - Place Your Order Today!

If You Don't Have Anything Nice to Say by Leila Sales; This provocative and relevant young adult novel is about Winter, a one-time National Spelling Bee Champ with a bright future ahead of her.

What unfolds is a barrage of Internet shaming and rejection from her community and closest friends. Winter seeks to redeem herself, but first must come to terms with what she wrote and understand why there was so much backlash. - from the publisher
