FINAL EXAM EXEMPTION - 2017-2018 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.
Exam exemptions are an acknowledgement of a student’s exemplary attendance and academic effort which has led to the student’s college and career readiness. Redundancy of a comprehensive exam for an individual non-EOC course is not needed for students who meet the eligibility requirements as stated below.
Teachers and Administration make the final decision on exam exemptions. At the end of each semester, students may earn an exemption from the taking the final exam in a class. 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 an exam.
70-75 = 0 absence
76-79 = 1 absence
80-89 = 2 absences
90-100 = 3 absences
Students are responsible for turning in all exam exemption forms by the set date. If students do not turn in exemption forms by the set date they will not be exempt from final exams.
Exam exemption is an acknowledgement of hard work and dedication. There will not be any appeals.
