The following is an important message from Brewer High School:
We are making a CHANGE to our exemption policy this semester due to the large number of absences related to the flu this season. We WILL count medical absences this semester and will increase the number of absences to 7.
Final exam exemptions will be granted each semester to eligible students for one of the following reasons:
· A student with an overall average of 85 or higher and three or less absences (excluding co-curricular, extra-curricular, and college visit absences) for the semester may exempt the semester final exam in that course. The semester average will be entered for the final exam grade.
· Students who are eligible for exemptions may choose to take the final in an attempt to earn a higher grade. The higher of the two semester exam grades will be recorded.
