Senior Exam Exemption Policy
A senior who has earned the privilege, may be exempt from the second semester exam in each class in which he/she meets the following criteria:
- Any student with an average of 90 or higher may be exempt from their exam.
- The minimum average for an exemption to be considered in any class is 80 for the second semester. In addition, a student cannot have dropped more than five (5) points from his first semester grade to his second semester grade (or from the third nine weeks to the fourth nine weeks in a semester course). For example, if a student has a 87 average for the first semester and drops to an 81 the second semester, they would be required to take the exam.
- Assignment of disciplinary consequences during the first or second semester will eliminate a student from consideration of exemption in all classes. Disciplinary consequences that are covered include, but are not limited to: Saturday School, suspension, and Alternative School assignment.
- Participation of senior class members in inappropriate behavior including, but not limited to, a “senior prank”,” will eliminate those members from exemption in all classes.
- Exemption consideration is considered for semester classes at the conclusion of 1st
Note: Any student taking an AP exam will be exempt from the semester exam in that class. The above criteria for exemption will apply to any AP student who chooses not to take the AP exam.
