    ACT

    Wakefield High School is scheduled to administer the ACT to all 11th grade students on February 25, 2020. If your student receives testing accommodations through a 504 or IEP and wishes to apply for these accommodations to be provided for the ACT, please contact your child's case manager to ensure that consent is in place. Wakefield cannot provide accommodations that are not approved by the ACT for this assessment, regardless of 504 or IEP accommodations, therefore the consent to apply is crucial for ensuring all students are given their most appropriate testing environment."

     

    Final Exams for the Fall Term

    Wakefield High School will administer final exams during the week of January 11-15. We ask students and parents to please review our webpage for final exam information. Information on testing may be found by visiting the WHS homepage, scrolling down to Quick links, and clicking Testing Information. Parking passes are not required for student drivers during exam week.

     

    School Bus Transportation During Exams

    Transportation is establishing bus routes for the students who need transportation for exams during the week of Jan. 11. These routes will be posted to the transportation web page by January 6.

Cohort D indicates Virtual Academy enrollment. 

    Students will be able to submit requests for schedule changes on the school website from January 14-20.  Due to the needs of the master schedule, schedule changes will only be considered for student needs or to correct errors.  The form will go live on the site on January 14.

    Spring Schedules

    Parents, student schedules for second semester will be posted in PowerSchool on January 8.  Any schedule information in PowerSchool is not finalized.  We will open a course change request window from January 16-January 20.  Details will be shared soon, and the form link will be live on the school website once the window is open.

    Women’s Lacrosse

    There will be a meeting for all girls interested in playing Lacrosse this season on Tuesday, December 15 at 7:00.  The link for the meeting will be posted on the athletic website.  

    CCP for the Springs

    Attention students: If you have registered for CCP courses for the Spring semester, please email your CCP schedule to your counselor, along with a completed Dual enrollment form. The Dual enrollment form can be found on the student services website, please click on the student services form link on the left of the page.

    Final Exams:

    Final exams will take place January 11-15. The schedule is attached to this communication. Teacher made exams will take place virtually during that week. Teachers may also choose to offer final projects as an exam grade, and these projects may be due prior to January 11.

    As usual, final exam grades will count as 20% of your child’s final average for the course.

    Exam Exemptions:

    In alignment with WCPSS policy, seniors who have a C or above in the course (as averaged by the Quarter 1 and Quarter 2 grades) may be exempt from their teacher-made final exams. All other students will take their exams. Students enrolled in CTE or EOC classes may not be exempt from teacher-made exams.

    EOCs and CTE Exams:

    Per state policy, all EOCs or final exams for CTE courses will be given in person on campus. This includes students enrolled in the Virtual Academy. These tests will be conducted according to WCPSS and NCDHHS-approved safety measures. Students with medical conditions that may preclude their ability to test safely may request a medical waiver. The medical waiver form is located on the school website. Students who do not take the final exam for these courses will receive an Incomplete for the class until they take the final. Students with an incomplete grade for a course will not receive credit for the course, which may affect athletic eligibility.

    Arrival and Dismissal for In-Person Tests:

    Students reporting to campus for testing must have completed a Student Accountability Form that is located on the school website. Forms may be returned by printing the form, scanning it and emailing it to Ms. Torres (ctorres@wcpss.net). Forms may also be brought to school the day of testing.

    Transportation will be provided for students who need to come to campus for testing. Students will be screened prior to entering the building. Parents dropping students off should remain in the carpool until the student has been screened.

    Students who have their own transportation may leave campus at the end of the testing session for that day. A signed parent permission form is required to leave campus early. The permission form will be posted on the school website, and teachers may post it to their class sites. Students will turn in the form to the teacher testing them that day.

    All forms related to testing may be found on the school website. Go to the Students tab and click on the Testing link. More information about EOC Testing can be found below.

    We are excited to welcome some of students back to campus and look forward to partnering with you and your student to create a safe, successful testing experience.

    Scoring of End-of-Course (EOC) Tests & CTE Post Assessments

    All students are strongly encouraged to take their exam and do their best. The exam is an opportunity to share what students have learned. Our hope is that the scoring structure described below allows students to do just that!

    NCDPI has provided school districts with the ability to adjust the scoring scale for state tests. For the 2020-2021 school year, the scoring of End-of-Course (EOC) tests and CTE Post Assessments will observe the following:

    Minimum Score of 60. The grading scale for state assessments will include a minimum possible score of “60.” The goal of this change is to ensure that no student fails the course as a direct result of their score on the exam.

    Exam Score Only Improves Course Average. If a student’s score on the state exam is lower than the combined average of Quarter 1 and Quarter 2, the student’s exam score will be curved to equal their course average. For example, if a student has an “80” average for the course prior to the exam, then their lowest possible exam score is an “80,” but they will keep any score higher than an “80.” It is important to note that the score is curved for the purpose of calculating the course average. The original EOC scale score, achievement level, and percentile will be reflected on the student transcript.

    Students who do not test and have not submitted a medical exemption will receive an Incomplete (INC) for the course.

    FAQs:

    Q: What if I / my student do not feel comfortable coming into the school building to test?

    A: WCPSS respects the choice of a family to not enter the school building at this time due to health concerns. As such, there are several options available to still allow the student to test. First, if there is a medical reason for this choice, the parent may submit a medical exception request from their school. Second, students who do not test in the fall testing window can engage in make-up exams in early spring, they may also test in the spring testing window in May / June.

    Exam Grading Scale

    Q: Why have we created a “floor” of 60 for the exam?

    A: NCDPI has provided districts the ability to modify the grading scale for state tests. WCPSS chose a “floor” of 60 based on the belief that the state test should not be the sole cause of a student failing a course that they otherwise had earned a sufficient average to pass.

    Q: Why did we decide to curve the exam to be no lower than the student’s course average?

    A: NCDPI has provided districts the ability to modify the grading scale for state tests. This provision allows for state tests to help a student to increase their grade while not having the risk of lowering it. Our hope is that this provides students with an incentive either now or in a future testing window to take the exam and do their best.

    Students Who Do Not Test

    Q: What happens if I / my student do not take the exam and do not submit a medical exception request?

    A: The student will receive an Incomplete in the course and will have the opportunity to test during the spring and summer testing windows.

    Q: If I / my student do not take the exam now and receive an incomplete, what are the implications?

    A: There are some critical things to know about an Incomplete. Because it is not a completed credit, it may have an impact on a student’s athletic eligibility if they did not earn three other credits for the fall semester. Also, if the student did not earn their other three credits, they may be in jeopardy of losing their driver's license per state law as that requirement has not yet been waived for 2020-2021.

    Medical Exemptions

    Q: What happens to my course grade / exam score if the state denies my medical exception request?

    A: The student’s course grade will be as it was going into the exam (i.e., average of Q1 and Q2) and will not be revisited if the request is denied. The state’s medical exception decision only affects whether the student’s score will be included in school accountability model calculations; it does not factor into the course grade for the student.

    Course Grading

    Q: Can students receive a Pass (P) or Fail (F) as a course grade - like they did in the spring?

    A: In the spring, the state provided schools with the option of WC19 and PC19 for use with courses. That use was limited to the 2019-2020 school year. We are working presently with NCDPI to determine what options may exist to use a grade of “Pass” or “P” for a course at the local level. We are also having discussions at the district level about both positives and unintended consequences to this approach.

     

    Yours,

    Malik Bazzell, Principal

    Senior Pictures

    As a company, Strawbridge WILL NOT provide Tux and Drapes.

    • Students wear a black in order to make the yearbook photo look uniform. Girls can wear a black   dress while boys wear a black blazer with white shirt.

    Senior Video Bulletin

     Seniors and Senior Families: Student Services has recently introduced a new weekly Senior Video Bulletin as one way to help our Class of 2021 students and families stay informed in this virtual/remote environment. These video links are emailed to the senior's school email account at the end of each week. We plan to continue to communicate important class, college, and career information to you in this way, so please get in the habit of checking your student's email for this link on a regular basis.
