SENIOR EXAM EXEMPTION POLICY
Per WCPSS policy, students in Grade 12 may be exempt from exams based on the following criteria:
- Students must have a projected final grade of B or higher AND
- Students must have 10 or fewer absences (excused or unexcused) in the course.
- Students cannot be exempt from state testing including field testing.
The principal (consistent with GS 115C-288) has final authority to determine a student's exemption status.
To provide some clarification to the guidelines above:
Absences will all count equally when considering eligibility for exam exemptions. College visitations will count as part of the 10 days.
Principals may waive absences beyond the 10 absences for documented absences that are outside of the student's control (ex - medical or transportation).
All absences must be communicated to the attendance office via email or note. Attendance email: SHS-Attendance@wcpss.net
