Just curious what your high school's exemption policy is for final exams. In our district, it depends on the grade level and the subject. Freshmen/Sophomore/Juniors in "TAKS" classes (English, math, science and social studies) just have to pass TAKS and have a 70 or higher in the class. They also can have no suspensions. Absences make no difference. All seniors (for every subject) and underclassmen in "non TAKS classes" (electives) have to have an 80 or higher, no more than 3 absences, and no suspensions. What is your policy? Do you think it's fair? I get a little frustrated with the fact that a kid can exempt my class (a TAKS class) with a 70. I wish they had to work harder for it.
