Senior Exam Exemptions:

Exemptions from examinations will be allowed for certain seniors meeting the following exemption requirements:

  1. A senior (a student who is a candidate for June graduation) who makes grades of not less than “B” on each nine-week report period in a given subject during a current semester shall be eligible for exemption in that particular subject that semester.  (No nine-week report grade, as recorded on the report card for a given semester, may be less than “B” in the subject for which exemption is sought.)
  2. Additionally, the following conditions apply:
    1. A student must not have received a suspension (OSS) from school in the current semester;
    2. A student must not be absent in excess of four days during the current semester.  Seniors should be reminded that missing the exam review day could count as their fifth absence.
  3. Teachers of seniors reserve the right to require all seniors to take exams.  Examination requirements shall be clarified at the beginning of the course.
  4.   Seniors eligible for exemption may, if they choose, take any of their examinations.

Exam Attendance and Make-Up Information

EXAM SCHEDULE

Once examinations are scheduled, no exceptions may be made for the convenience of individual students.  Students shall not be permitted to take examinations out of schedule.  To receive credit for a course, a student must take the exam.  The only exception to this is a senior who meets exam exemption requirements.

CREDIT

To receive credit for a course, a student must take the exam.  The only exception to this is a senior who meets exam exemption requirements.  Students who do not make-up their exams will receive a grade of zero and an F in the course for the semester.

EXAM ATTENDANCE POLICY

All students are expected to maintain a good attendance record during the exam days.  The regular absence policy is in effect.  Students must report to the attendance office to sign-in or sign-out when entering or leaving school other than the approved beginning or end of the school day.  Completion and submission of the Permission for Absences on Exam Days form, as described below, will serve as sign-in and sign-out during exam days.

Any student planning to be absent during the exam period because of exemptions and/or study halls should return the Permission for Absences on Exam Days form to their English teacher or the attendance office by Monday, January 23, 2017.  This form must be signed by a parent or guardian, and a telephone number must provided where a parent or guardian may be reached during the day for confirmation.  Seniors will not be counted absent on the days missed because of exam exemptions.  (Exam Exemptions will be verified by the teachers.). Transportation will be the responsibility of the parent/student who have an exemption or study hall. Buses will run according to the full day exam schedule.

MAKE-UP EXAMS

Make-up exams will be given only in the case of illness or other emergencies.  In all cases a parent or guardian should personally speak to the principal or assistant principal prior to the absence or before the exam time to advise the school of the situation.  It is the combined responsibility of both the teacher and the student to schedule a time to make up any missed exam.

ATTENDANCE FOR INDIVIDUAL EXAM PERIODS

Students are required to remain in their exam class for the entire exam period that has been scheduled.  No students should arrive late to an exam block or leave an exam block early.  Students arriving late to an exam or leaving an exam block early create unnecessary distractions.  Students will be dismissed from an exam once the block has ended, even if the student completes the exam early.

Eight Class Bell Schedule for May 9-13

 

Dear Parents and Guardians:

As the SOL testing window will soon be upon us, we want to ensure that every Patriot is optimally prepared for the state tests and ready to perform to the best of their abilities.

Starting Monday, May 9, and ending on Friday, May 13, we would like for every student to attend every class every day. This bell schedule adjustment is a school-wide intensive focus on enhancing student performance on these standardized tests because they are vitally important to our students’ academic successes. The adjusted bell schedule will provide time every day for in-class remediation and review. At the bottom of this letter is the bell schedule for May 9 through May 13.

I understand that this bell schedule adjustment will be inconvenient for some students. Therefore, school-wide, we have agreed to avoid major assignments during this five-day period. Details that address specific students’ situations are below:

1) Shuttle bus students: I have communicated with the principals of The Hanover Center for Trades and Technology (THCTT) and Hanover High School (HHS). They have agreed for PH students not to travel to those locations during these five days of May 9 through May 13. Our students who usually travel will be in study halls and available to complete paper/pencil work for those THCTT and HHS classes if necessary.

2) Liberty Middle School students: Liberty Middle School world language students who attend our French, German, Latin, and Spanish classes will be monitored by our senior teacher, Mrs. Stanford, or each student’s own world language teacher. We will work with these students to make sure their grades are not negatively impacted and that they remain current with their curricula.

3) Seniors with senior release: I am asking that these seniors attend classes unless they have jobs that preclude attendance. If the students cannot be in classes, teachers will work with them to ensure grades do not suffer and that senior exam exemptions are not impacted.

I appreciate your flexibility as we take advantage of every opportunity to be sure all of our students are ready for the SOL tests. If you have questions and concerns, please contact me at 365-8000 or WBibb@hcps.us. I will be happy to help. Thank you for supporting Patrick Henry High School.

With warm regards,

Wanda Bibb, Ed.D.
