HIGH SCHOOL SEMESTER EXAM EXEMPTION

The purpose of the semester exam exemption plan is to:

  • Provide an incentive for academic endeavor
  • Improve school attendance
  • Encourage good citizenship and punctuality
  • Foster student-teacher relationship and responsibility

Exemptions for final exams will not be given until the student has been cleared of textbook/library fines, fees, payment for lost books, etc.  Extenuating circumstances preventing the payment of fees by a student will be considered on a case by case basis by the principal.  Any student assigned to in-school suspension (ISS), out of school suspension (OSS), disciplinary alternative education program (DAEP), or caught cheating will forfeit their exemptions for that semester.  For exemption purposes only, three tardies in a class will count as one absence for that class.

Attendance/Grade Requirement for Exemptions:

  • Perfect attendance –  semester grade average of at least 75
  • One or Two absences – semester grade average of at least 80
  • Three absences – semester grade average of at least 90
  • Four or more absences – no exemption

**Attendance on review days is mandatory; absence may result in a loss of exemption. 

  • Seniors must take one (1) exam and may exempt all others in the fall semester; may be exempt from all exams in the spring.
  • Juniors must take two (2) exams with one being a core subject.
  • Sophomores must take three (3) exams with two being core subjects.
  • Freshmen must take four (4) exams with two being core subjects.

IMPORTANT ATTENDANCE INFORMATION

  • When a student returns to school from an absence, a medical/dental note or note from parent explaining reason for the absence must be turned into the office, within 7 days of returning to school.
  • Unexcused absences remain coded as “unexcused” after 7 days has lapsed.
  • It is imperative that parents provide documentation in a timely manner.
  • The state truancy laws now require schools to place students on truancy prevention plans starting with the third unexcused absence.

If you have any questions please contact the school.
