Seniors Only

Adopted by Senior High Faculty January 15, 2008

  • There will be no exemptions for first semester exams.

•·       To be exempt from the second semester exam in a subject and to be excused from the two official review sessions for that subject, the following three criteria must be met.

  1. The average of the third and fourth grading periods must be an A - 90 or above.
  2. The student may not miss more than five (5) classes (unexcused) in that subject during the second semester. School related absences would be excused and would not count toward the total classes missed. (i.e. - science fair participant, softball, baseball, or golf team member, scholars bowl team member, etc. Spectators for these types of events are not considered excused.)
  3. The student may not have more than five (5) tardies to homeroom or that class during second semester.
  • Suspension for any reason or any length of time voids all of the above. Any student who is suspended during second semester is not eligible for exemption.
