Senior Exemption Procedure
On Wednesday, May 9th, the main office will run a report to determine which students meet the attendance criteria. For a student to be exempt, they must have two (2) absences and two (2) tardies or less. If a student has three (3) absences or three (3) tardies (or more) then they would no longer be eligible for exam exemption.
Once the main office has determined which students are eligible based on attendance, we will run a second filter to determine student grades. If a student has maintained a B- or better in their class, he/she will be exempt from the final exam. If a student has a grade in the C (+/-) range, he/she will have the opportunity to speak with their teacher to determine if the grade may change. A student's sheet will be highlighted in yellow if an hour is eligible for a teacher override. If a course is blacked out, that hour is not eligible for exam exemption.
Exemption forms for those that qualify, will be delivered 1st hour Thursday, May 10th. Once the student's have obtained their exam exemption sheets, they will take the form home to be signed by a parent/guardian. If a parent/guardian signature is not provided or if the sheet is not turned in by 12 p.m.(noon) Monday, May 14th, then the student is required to take any final exams that are part of their classes. Teacher's will be provided a final list of eligible students and the hours they have been exempt from by Thursday, May 17th. Students must continue to maintain exemption status (for attendance and grades) through May 17th (when a final report will be run again).
