Wimberley High School
Final Exam Exemption Policy
The opportunity to earn Final Exam exemptions in the Spring semester is a privilege offered to students who have met specific criteria. Students must meet the following requirements to earn exemptions:
- Attendance: Students must have been present for 95% of school days during the 2017-2018 school year. For exemption purposes, absences due to participation in school-sponsored activities or school approved college visits, absences for which a Doctor’s note is provided, and absences due to death in the immediate family will not count against a student.
- Honor Code: A violation of the Wimberley High School Honor Code disqualifies the student from exemption privileges during the school year in which the violation occurs.
- Behavior: Students assigned to a Discipline Alternative Education Placement will not be eligible for exemptions during that school year. Students receiving three referrals resulting in suspensions (including either in-school and/or out-of school) will lose the right to exempt final exams for that school year.
- Obligations: All school obligations (fees, fines, school equipment, etc.) must be cleared.
9th and 10th Grade Students: These students will have the option to potentially exempt two spring semester final exams. To be eligible for an exam exemption, the student must have a final year average of 85 or higher in the class they choose to exempt.
11th Grade Students: These students will have the option to potentially exempt three spring semester final exams. To be eligible for an exam exemption, the student must have a final year average of 85 or higher in the class they choose to exempt.
12th Grade Students: Seniors have the opportunity to exempt four spring semester final exams. To qualify for an exemption, the student must have a final year average in the class of 80 or higher.
Due to the rigorous nature and demands of AP and Pre-AP courses, classroom teachers of these courses will determine whether the exemption policy will apply to their particular class.
