Final Exam Exemption Policy
There are no exemptions from any course where 1/2 credit is earned or from any course that has a state end-of-course test (EOC). In courses that have state EOC tests: Algebra I & II, English I, II, & III, Biology, U.S. History, the EOC serves as the final exam grade. The state EOC score shall count twenty-five percent of the student's grade in the second semester: 3rd quarter = 3/8 (37.5%), 4th quarter = 3/8 (37.5%), EOC = 1/4 (25%). If state EOC test results are late reporting, see the policy below.
Exemption status is determined by averaging the first three quarter grades and the mid-term exam. Absences of any type that are not school related count against the exam exemption policy. Students are exempt from the final exam in an eligible course if they have:
A average (93 or above) in the course and have no more than five absences from the course.
B average (85 or above) in the course and have no more than three absences from the course.
C average (75 or above) and have no absences from the course.
The EOC score shall count twenty-five percent of the student's grade in the semester in which the test was administered.
Final exam = 1/4 (25%) of the second semester grade.
Third quarter grade = 3/8 (37.5%).
Fourth quarter grade = 3/8 (37.5%).
Juniors and seniors who score a 21 or above on their ACT test are also exempt from final exams.
EOC/FINAL EXAM POLICY IF STATE EOC TESTS REPORT LATE:
If the state is late reporting EOC test results prior to the scheduled final exams, online TN Ready End-Of-Course test results will not be utilized for student final exam grades in the tested EOC courses (Algebra I and II; English I, II, and III; Biology; U.S. History). For these EOC impacted classes, a final exam in lieu of the missing EOC grade will not be required. The quarter three (50%) and quarter four (50%) grades will be averaged for the final semester two grade. However, students may choose to take a teacher-produced final exam during the established final exam schedule in an effort to raise their final grade. If this option is chosen, semester grades will be calculated: quarter three (37.5%), quarter four (37.5%), and final exam (25%).
Attendance will be documented daily. Any make-up exams will be administered at the discretion of the teacher. Students may checkout at the conclusion of their last exam period of the day with written parental permission as outlined below:
CHECK-OUT POLICY AFTER FINAL EXAMS
If a student intends to check-our after their final exam of the day, they must have a written note signed by their parent or guardian. PHONE CALLS FOR PERMISSION TO CHECK-OUT WILL NOT BE PERMITTED.
Students will give their written check-out note to the teacher of their last exam of the day.
Students will turn in their check-out note upon entering the classroom.
When the dismissal announcement is made, only those students who turned in a written note are permitted
to leave. Students must sign the STUDENT SIGN-OUT LOG when departing. No student is allowed to leave prior to the scheduled dismissal time.
Written notes are required even if a student has a permanent checkout on file with the vice principal.
Once students have turned in a written note and signed the sign-out log, they have permission to leave.
