Senior Finals Connected to Attendance
Seniors will be eligible for Second Semester Finals Waivers if, during their second semester, a senior meets the following criteria:
- Fewer than 5 unexcused absences (approximately 7% of the Senior Second Semester attendance days) and fewer than 10 total absences.
- The total absences would include any combination of Unexcused Absences and Authorized Absences.
- A grade of B- or above.
This rule will be applied on a per-class basis. If a student has exceeded the allowed number of absences in one particular class, then the Second Semester Finals Waiver can be denied for that particular class.
Students may appeal the decision to deny a waiver and all appeals will be heard by the Principal or Department Chair with final decisions made prior to senior finals.
- The 10 total absences would include any combination of Unexcused Absences and non-school related Authorized Absences such as College Visits, Family Emergencies, Medical Appointments, and Illnesses.
