Testing Reminders:

1. Grades- By the end of each exam day, please have everything but the final exam and the final grade posted in Powerschool.Teachers of classes with delayed exam scores will be expected to enter exam grades when they arrive. This can be done remotely. Scores should be delayed no more than 4-5 days. You will receive scores and directions from Ms. Gwaltney.

2. Exam Policy- Exams (of any type) will count 25% of the final grade.

3. Do’s and Don’ts during EOCs- Please do not play music during or after exams. This is distracting to other classes. You are NOT to send kids to the restroom during an EOC. If it is an emergency, use the plan outlined during EOC training. DO NOT let students leave your room when they are done with exams. They stay the entire time. Do not tell students to bring pillows or blankets to school.

4. IEPs and modifications- please make sure to follow all IEP modifications during testing.

5. Exam exemptions- Seniors with 85 or above for the semester and 3 or less absences.
