Final Exam Exemption - 2018-2019 School Year

Comprehensive exams remain in place for Georgia Milestones End of Course assessments (EOC). We will continue to stress the importance of these exams and use the data to plan for instruction. EOC assessments may not be exempt due to state policy.

This exemption is an acknowledgement of a student’s exemplary attendance and academic effort which has led to the student’s college and career readiness. Teachers and Administration make the final decision on exemptions. Absences that apply to this policy include excused, unexcused and out of school suspension. The classroom teacher will keep records to validate a student’s eligibility for exempting the assignment.

                70-75 = 0 absence

                76-79 = 1 absence

                80-89 = 3 absences

                90-100 = 5 absences

Students are responsible for turning in all exemption forms by the set date. If students do not turn in exemption forms by the set date, they will not be exempt from the Final during the Final Exam days. Exemption is an acknowledgement of hard work and dedication. There will not be any appeals.
