Mid-Term Exam Check-out Policy

After a student’s last scheduled exam has been completed, that student may check-out provided: 

  • The student has all missed or outstanding work made up for all their classes.
  • The student has a note turned in to their last exam teacher or the office from their parent giving them permission to check-out and has to sign the check-out log after their last scheduled exam.
 
Students may not go to the middle or elementary campus. Students not allowed to check-out will remain at school and be assigned to the classrooms of those teachers for whom work is owed. Students who fail to stay will be addressed by administration.

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, Geometry, English I, II, & III, Biology, U.S. History, the EOC serves as the final exam grade.  The state EOC score shall count twenty percent of the student's grade in the second semester:  3rd quarter = 40%, 4th quarter = 40%, EOC = 20%. 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 (90 or above) in the course and have no more than five absences from the course.
B average (80-89) in the course and have no more than three absences from the course.
C average (70-79 or above) and have no absences from the course.

Juniors and seniors who score a 21 or above on their ACT test are also exempt from final exams (other than 1/2 credit semester courses for which there are no exemptions).


Academic Weight

The EOC score shall count twenty percent of the student's grade in the semester in which the test was administered. 

Final exam = 20% of the second semester grade
Third quarter grade = 40%
Fourth quarter grade = 40%


If the state is late reporting EOC test results prior to the scheduled final exams, TN Ready End-Of-Course test results will not be utilized for student final exam grades in the tested EOC courses (Algebra I; Algebra II; Geometry; English I, English II; English 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. 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 (40%), quarter four (40%), and final exam (20%).


Additional Notes

Attendance will be documented daily. Exams will not be administered earlier than scheduled without prior administrative approval. 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:
