Spring Final Exam Schedule 2018, Exemptions and Exits

posted Feb 20, 2017, 3:02 PM by Marissa Sarabando   [ updated May 8, 2018, 2:45 PM ]
Students who have met the requirements for exempting a final exam must still report to class for attendance. Failure to report for the exam will result in the student receiving a "ZERO"  for their final exam. Please bring something to read or to study quietly as other students will be testing.
 
The attachment has both the testing schedule for Lamar Academy and the one for McHi, Memorial and Rowe. Both of these final exam schedules are the same as no one is scheduled to take two or be at two locations at the same time.


EXEMPTION POLICY EXCERPT - McAllen ISD


EXIT POLICY EXCERPT REGARDING SEMESTER GRADES:

Lamar Academy Initiated Exit

Academic Performance:

*Note:  For purposes of average values, grades with a .5 or higher round up to the next whole grade.  Grades with a decimal lower than .5 do not round up to the next higher grade.   Therefore a 69.5 or higher rounds up to a 70, but a grade below 69.5 does not round up to a 70.  A 64.5 or higher will round up to a 65, but a grade less than 64.5 will not round up to a 65. 


            9th – 10th grades:

·     Any student who has a failing first semester average (between 65 - 69*) in only one IB subject will be placed on academic probation for the second semester.  Academic probation may include an individualized action plan and contact with a mentor.

·         Any student who has a failing first semester average (below 65*) in any IB subject will be exited from the program.

·         Any student who has a failing first semester average (below 70*) in more than one IB subject will be exited from the program.

·         Any student who has a failing yearly average (below 70*) in any IB subject will be exited from the program. 

 

11th grade: 

·     Any student who has a failing first semester average (between 65 - 69*) in only one IB subject will be placed on academic probation for the second semester.  Academic probation may include an individualized action plan and contact with a mentor.

·         Any student who has a yearly average below 70* in any IB subject will be exited from that class.  This student will be ineligible to earn the IB diploma, will not receive the IB pin, stole, or honor cords and will not participate in the pinning ceremony.

·         The student may choose to exit to the home campus or become a course certificate student.  If the student elects to become a course certificate student, they will be allowed to complete the IB classes in which they have a passing semester average and to test in those subjects only.

 

12th grades:  1st Semester
