HS Test Schedule Rules
Fall Semester Testing and making up a missed test:
Occasionally, a student will have to miss a scheduled semester test. According to the Board-Approved Student Handbook, semester tests cannot be taken earlier than the scheduled test block. With that said, here are the options for students who do miss a scheduled test:
Health Excuse (Concussion*, sickness):
The student must make contact with the teacher, and the parent or student must make contact with the office prior to the missed testing period. A doctor’s note must be presented to the office/teacher. The individual teacher will make the determination on the timeline and the arrangement for the make-up testing.
* SW will be vigilant about enforcing ALL of the doctor's orders - not just the parts about not doing any work or tests........ If there is a "no screen time" part of the recommendation, the student will turn in his or her computer until they are cleared. If there is a "limited" screen time, the student will turn in the computer and can have access to it with teacher permission.
Additionally, no screen time = no cell phone or other devices should be used either. The student can either leave his/her phone at home or turn it in at the office for the day. A cell phone can be checked between classes if the doctor approves.
Absence for something other than a health excuse:
If a student is gone for a reason other than a health related reason (besides intentionally skipping the test or showing up for the test after the test), the student is required to make contact with the teacher, and the parent or student must make contact with the office prior to the missed testing period. Arrangements will be made to complete the test after the semester and prior to 3:30 p.m. on the day the grades are due in the office.
