All teachers will administer one of the following assessments during Final Exam days:

1. District Final

2. Quarterly Check

3. Principal Approved Assessment (PAA)


If you're not sure which assessment you will be giving, check with your PLC facilitator.

Instructions for Students Requesting to Test Semester Exams Early

Please encourage perfect attendance during the Final Exam week!


Here are the steps that students/parents should take if they need to sign out of school early during the final exam days.


  1. Parents should submit a “Request for a Pre-Approved Absence” on the CCMHS home page by clicking on the Report an Absence button.
  2. Once approved by admin, the request is forwarded to Ms. Perez in Student Services and Mr. Copeland.
  3. When Mr. Copeland receives the request, he will contact the student and parent directly to arrange the date/time of early testing if the student will be absent on a testing day.
  4. Students who need to make up exams will have to do so during non-exam periods on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
  5. If the request is not made or approved AND the student does not take the exam, then they will receive a grade of “0”.

Winter FSA/NGSSS EOC Retakes

The Winter FSA/NGSSS EOC Retakes will take place starting Tuesday, 11/27, in the Media Center. Only EOC's (Algebra 1, Geometry, Biology 1, US History, and Civics) will be assessed.

Best Practices for Grading

Just a friendly reminder, teachers must have nine assignments a quarter posted in myStudent. The Employee Handbook states, teachers are to post at least one grade weekly. This ensures we are following contractual obligations and giving students the opportunity to prove mastery of standards.

Actionable Items

Submit a Faculty or Student Howlout!

Faculty Howlouts will drive our selections for Staff Member of the Week. Each week we will announce all of our HS and MS Coyote staff members of the week! These staff members will have their names announced on the intercom on Friday. At the end of the quarter the Staff Members of the Week will be invited to a special luncheon in their honor! We look forward to receiving numerous staff shout outs so we have many to select from each week!”


Student Howlouts: At the end of the week these students will be invited down to the flag pole in the center of the courtyard where we will have a Coyote Flag to be raised on Friday. These students will get the honor of raising the flag each Friday, and will have their names announced on the intercom! At the end of the quarter we will have a breakfast for all of our Students of the Week and their parents.
