North Augusta High School Semester Exams (2023-2024 School Year)
Final examinations for 0.5 credit courses and 1.0 credit courses shall be administered for all courses. All students are required to take exams except for a special education student whose IEP specifically excludes exams, and seniors who may exempt the end of the year examination due to having a grade of “A” in the course for the year.
The final grade for a 1.0 credit course will be determined by averaging both nine weeks grades (40%) and adding the final exam grade (20%). Nine-week exams may be given at the end of the first and third nine-week grading period per teacher discretion and will count as a test grade.
Exams are extremely important and students are required to be in attendance on the scheduled date of exams.
Final exams count 20% of the final grade.
The following expectations will be adhered to for exams at North Augusta High School without exception:
- Exams will not be administered prior to the scheduled date.
- Students who know in advance that they will be absent for an exam must get advance administrative approval for the absence to be excused. If the absence is not excused, the student will not be able to take the exam upon return from the absence. The request must be made in writing and signed by the parent. The request must be made at least 30 school days prior to the exam.
- Aside from prior-approved absences, the only absences that will result in approval for making up the exam will be those accompanied by a doctor’s excuse or death in the immediate family (i.e. brother, sister, mother, father).
- Parents may not sign out students during the exam block. It is a classroom disruption when students are signed out during exams, so students will only be released at the conclusion of the exam blocks. Should a student have a doctor’s appointment, the student will need to have a note from a parent stating what time they need to leave class. The request to be dismissed from class early must be approved by an administrator and include both the parent’s and administrator’s signatures in order for the teacher to release the student.
