    (Spanish is below)

    (El español está abajo)

    Final Exam Grade Waiver

    Applies to 9th, 10th, and 11th grade AP and IB

     

    • Students enrolled in an AP or IB course may be eligible for a grade waiver from the final exam in that subject for one semester courses in the Fall semester and all courses in the Spring semester if the following conditions exist:
    • A minimum overall final semester average of 80 (per class) and a minimum grade of 80 in the final-9 week grading period. 
    • Students must take the National AP or International IB exam for that course in May.
    • Students shall have no more than nine (9) absences during the final semester (per class).
    • Students attending school-sponsored events will not be penalized. 
    • Students shall have no more than five (5) tardies in that AP or IB class.
    • No major infractions resulting in ISS, Out of School Suspension, or Special Programs Center.
    • Students must have no outstanding fines, fees, or debts for school property or other PISD services.
    • Students must take the semester exam on the date/time originally scheduled or, in the case of an excused absence, during the determined make-up exam time.
    • To qualify for the grade waiver, a student must report to class on the day of the exam and take the final exam for the course. If the semester exam grade benefits the student, it will be recorded and counted toward the student’s course grade.

    If a student has an unexcused absence during the exam, the student forfeits the option to take advantage of the exam grade waiver and will take the exam for credit. 

     

    Final Exam Exemption

    Applies to 12th Grade Students

    • A minimum overall final semester average of 70 (per class) and a minimum grade of 70 in the final-9 week grading period. 
    • Students shall have no more than nine (9) absences during the final semester (per class).
    • Students attending school-sponsored events and college visits will not be penalized.
    • Students shall have no more than five (5) tardies in each class.
    • No major infractions resulting in ISS, Out of School Suspension, or Special Programs Center.
    • Students must have no outstanding fines, fees, or debts for school property or other PISD services.

    To qualify for the exam exemption, a student must be present in class for each exam. Various activities will be conducted at this time for students qualified to use exemptions, including the completion of course evaluations, student surveys, and projects. 

     

    Exempt students may choose to take the exam. If the semester exam grade benefits the student, it will be recorded and counted toward the student’s course grade.

     

    If a student has an unexcused absence during the exam, the student forfeits the option to take advantage of the exam exemption and will take the exam for credit.

     

    Lineamientos a seguir para la exención de calificaciones 

    y exámenes finales

     

    Exención de la calificación de un examen final

    Se aplica a los cursos IB y AP de 9º, 10º, y 11º grado

     

    Los alumnos inscritos en un curso AP o IB pueden optar a una exención de la calificación del examen final de esa materia para los cursos de un semestre de otoño y todos los cursos en el semestre de primavera si se dan las siguientes condiciones:

    • Un promedio final general mínimo de 80 (por clase) y una calificación mínima de 80 en el último periodo de 9 semanas de calificaciones.  
    • Los estudiantes deberán tomar el examen Nacional AP o el examen Internacional IB para esa materia en el mes de mayo.
    • Los estudiantes no tendrán más de nueve (9) ausencias durante el último semestre (por clase).

    • Los estudiantes no tendrán más de cinco (5) tardanzas en esa clase AP o IB.
    • No tener ninguna infracción mayor que resulte en ISS, Suspensión fuera de la escuela o el Centro de programas especiales.

    Para poder optar a la exención de calificaciones, el estudiante deberá presentarse en clase el día del examen y realizar dicho examen final para esa materia. Si la calificación del examen semestral beneficia al alumno, se registrará y se tomará en cuenta para la calificación del alumno de esa materia. 

     

    Si un estudiante tiene una ausencia injustificada durante el examen, el estudiante pierde la opción de tomar ventaja de la exención de la calificación, y tomará dicho examen para obtener crédito.   

     

    Exención del Examen Final

    • Un promedio semestral final de 70 (por clase) y una calificación mínima de 70 en el último periodo de 9 semanas de calificaciones.

    • Los estudiantes no deben tener multas, cuotas o deudas pendientes de bienes escolares u otros servicios de PISD.

     

    Para poder calificar para la exención de un examen, el estudiante deberá estar presente en clase para cada examen. Varias actividades se llevarán a cabo en ese momento para los estudiantes calificados para usar dichas exenciones, incluyendo la realización de evaluaciones de clase, encuestas de los estudiantes, y demás proyectos.   

     

    Los estudiantes exentos podrán optar por presentar el examen. Si la calificación del examen semestral beneficia al estudiante, se registrará y contará para la calificación del alumno de esa materia. 

     

    Si un estudiante tiene una ausencia injustificada durante el examen, el estudiante pierde la opción de tomar ventaja de la exención del examen, y tomará dicho examen para obtener crédito.
