Senior Exam Exemption Policy

Seniors will be able to exempt exams if they meet the following criteria in a course(s):

  1. Students must have an 80 or above average
  2. Students must have accrued no more than three absences (excused or unexcused) prior to the exam day (college visits count toward the three absences).
  3. Students must have no suspensions during that semester (ISS and OSS)
Other critical elements of the policy:
  1. State exams (End-of-Course/VoCats/NCFE) cannot be exempted
  2. Exemption is optional; a qualifying student may take an exam from which he/she is exempted (the final exam grade will only be used if it improves the student’s grade in the course)
AP Exams:
All students in AP classes must either take the AP exam or the teacher-made exam. There is no exemption for AP classes. If a student fails to take one or the other they will receive a “0” for their exam grade.
