DEPARTMENTAL TEST DAYS
Major tests are permitted to be given on the following days, but quizzes or spot assessments that are less than 10 (ten) minutes in length may be given on any day.
The test days for the 2019-2020 school year are:
Monday: Math, Business, and Health
Tuesday: Science and Social Studies
Wednesday: Foreign Language and Business
Thursday: English and Math
Friday: Foreign Language, Science and Art/Music
English and social studies have an additional “floating” test day that can be used for the type of written assessments often used in these disciplines, typically requiring little to no preparation.
If a student is absent for an exam, he/she must be prepared to take the assessment upon his/her return. A student absent illegally for an assessment forfeits the right to make up the exam. It should be stressed that the goal for all students is to take exams as scheduled. If an exam is missed for unavoidable reasons, taking the make-up exam must take precedence over any other activity or appointment in the student’s schedule.
Extra Help Schedule
Monday: Science and Social Studies
Tuesday: Foreign Language and Business
Wednesday: English and Art/Music
Thursday: Math and Health
Each department has an office, or designated classrooms, where students can go after school for extra help on that department’s extra help day. During that extra help session, students have the opportunity to make up missed work, take an exam, or receive additional instruction to reinforce or re-teach material. In addition to the extra help day, students can make an appointment with their teachers for a mutually convenient time.
