  • Final exams will be completed between December 8-16

FCPS high school students are afforded the opportunity to be exempt from attending the specific class(es) on the final two days of the fall term (Thursday, December 15 and Friday, December 16) provided they meet the following criteria:

  • Pass the SOL/End-of-Course assessment (if required) during the term in which they are taking the class and are passing the course OR
  • Earn an A or B in the course
