Exam Exemption Policy and Grading Scales

Exam Exemption Policy for Grades K-12 for 2019-2020 School Year

Students must meet the following criteria in order to be exempt from May end of year exams for grades K-12 and students in grades 9-12 December end of course exams:

  1. Perfect Attendance from October 1st – December 1st and March 1st – May 1st
  2. Have a passing grade in the class
  3. Principals may refuse a student’s exemption status due to disciplinary actions

Absences for school-sponsored activities do not count as an official school absence. Exempt students may choose to take an exam to raise their final average. In this case, exam grades will not count against the student’s average if it will lower their final grade. The school calendar is in the front of this handbook. Please do not schedule vacations, etc., during exams, which will be the last two days of each semester.
