The district has made an adjustment to the attendance portion of the criteria for semester exam exemptions. the attendance criteria will begin with absences incurred starting March first. Remember for attendance you must have 3 or fewer absences for the second semester.  excluding school business absences in the exempted course. The rest of the criteria is the same:

  • if the course is a full-year course, the student must have passed the first semester.
  • the student’s final average for the spring semester is 80 or higher.
  • the student’s conduct grade in that class is “S” or better.
  • the students must attend during the scheduled exam time. if you are exempt from a classes exam but do not attend that class on the day of the exam, you lose the exemption and will receive an 11 for your exam grade. Don’t do the hard work for the exemption and lose it at the end.
