   Interoffice Memorandum
 
To:           Faculty
Date:        January 17, 2017
 
From:       Todd Grimes, Principal
 
Subject:    Mid-Year Exam Procedure
 
 
Exams will be given on January 25th – 30th.   A schedule for these exams is attached.  All students are required to take a mid-term exam during the scheduled exam block.    
 
Alternative assessments, such as projects, portfolios, etc. that are given in lieu of a written final exam must be submitted in writing to your Department Head by Friday, January 20th.  Department Heads will then submit these requests to me for final approval. Students who take alternative assessments must still be present during the scheduled exam block.
 
A copy of all exams must be submitted to Mrs. Beland in the main office 24 hours before the exam is given, anyone failing to do so will be contacted by me.
 
Thank you for your attention regarding this matter.
