Final Exams and Academic Incentive

Final Exams

Teachers are required to formally assess students throughout the term. These assessments should be authentic in nature, where students actively demonstrate knowledge through presentations, projects, reports, portfolios, etc. Ideally, this will occur at the end of a unit, course, semester, program, and/or school year.

  • Final exams will be completed between December 8-16

Academic Incentive

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

Due to the pandemic, this incentive is not based upon student absences.
