End-of-Semester Testing Schedule and Activities

END-OF-SEMESTER TESTING

The testing periods should consist of a minimum of one and one-half (1.5) hours each. This would allow ample time for testing and collecting textbooks and other school materials. Textbooks should remain with the student until after the tests are completed.

Dismissal will be at 2:30 P.M. on both testing days for both semesters.

Extracurricular activities will end at 6:00 P.M. during "Testing Periods." Principals will determine dates of test week on an annual basis.

END-OF-SEMESTER ACTIVITIES

Parents will be notified in writing of failures with the recommendation that the student attend summer school (INS-76 Computer Services).

Second semester report cards will be mailed home if students bring self-addressed, stamped envelopes. Students who fail to bring a self-addressed, stamped envelope may pick up their report cards at the school on a designated day.

Locks on lockers are to be removed the final day of school, but a locker clean-out for all students may be scheduled at an earlier date.

Libraries will remain open until the end of test week. However, circulation may be terminated before test week, as long as students have access to materials on a non-check-out basis.
