Seniors and Semester 1 Exams
In most cases, seniors will exempt the final exam for 1st semester. Seniors must take the final exam in courses in which they have a failing grade (unless the failing grade is due to absences). They may elect to take the final exam in courses they are not failing in order to improve their grade. Their course grade may be raised, but not lowered, by their exam grade. If the exam grade would have the effect of lowering the final course grade, it should not be entered into the report card and the exam grade in the grade book should be left blank.
The last day for seniors who have exempted exams for Semester 1 is December 15. Any senior who plans to take a final exam will take the exam at the regularly scheduled exam time (see
Semester 1 Exam Schedule). Seniors who are in year-long classes are still expected to attend their year-long class through December 19. Attendance will be taken through December 19th.
Early Graduate grades are due December 16th at 3:30. If necessary, Early Graduate exams must be taken prior to December 16th. Please make arrangements with the teacher. Gilbert High School has 17 Early Graduates.
