Senior Exam Exemption Policy: Seniors who are taking courses that do not have a North Carolina Final Exam, End-of-Course test, or CTE Post Assessment may be eligible to be exempt from their final exam. To be exempt from a teacher made final exam, students must meet the following specifications:
- No more than three (3) absences (any form of absence- excused or unexcused) during the semester/term and an A in the course
- No more than two (2) absences (any form of absence- excused or unexcused) during the semester/term and a B in the course
- No more than one (1) absence (any form of absence- excused or unexcused) during the semester/term and a C in the course
If a senior is required to take a trip to a college (scholarship interview, required visit as part of his/her acceptance, etc.), he/she will need to submit documentation to the attendance office prior to the visit in order for it to be approved AND not count against their exemptions.
***Five unexcused tardies to a class IS EQUAL TO one unexcused absence.***
