Superintendent Donald E. Fennoy II issued a decision to waive Semester 2 exams for FY21, and to also waive the 20-hour community service graduation requirement for current seniors who have not met the requirement, but are otherwise on track to graduate.

Second semester grades for non-End of Course (EOC) high school courses will be calculated as follows:

• Quarter 3: 50%

• Quarter 4: 50%

• Semester Exam: Exempt 

• Semester 2 Grade: 100%

Community service hours are still required for many scholarships, including Bright Futures. Schools must continue to advise seniors of additional community service opportunities and requirements.

Per School Board Policy, in the event of a state, local, or national emergency, the Superintendent has the authority to waive high school semester exams and/or community service.
