    Eligibility: 

    • Students must have an 85+ average in Pre-AP/on-level courses, and 85+ in AP/6.0 weight courses. Teachers determine the course average for the student by adding the 3rd 9 weeks report card grade with the 4th 9 weeks grade and dividing by 2. 
    • Freshmen can exempt up to 2 exams (if they qualify), Sophomores up to 3, Juniors up to 4, and Seniors up to 5
    • Students that have been placed in ISS/OSS/DAEP during the Spring semester will NOT be eligible for exemptions. If a student has a debt, it must be cleared with the A.P. office BEFORE a teacher can grant an exemption.

    Reminders and Answers to NEW FAQs:

    • No Early exams. Students that miss with an excused absence/extenuating circumstance may make up a missed exam in June.
    • Students that are exempt will still report to your class during test time if they are on campus. Example: I am taking 1st and 3rd period exams, but am exempt from 2nd period. I will still report to 2nd period during exam time.
