Waxahachie High School will waive semester exams for students who meet the following criteria:

 

  • Students classified as a Freshman may have 1 Semester exam exemption.

 

  • Students classified as a Sophomore may have 1 Semester exam exemption.

 

  • Students classified as a Junior may have 2 Semester exam exemptions.

 

  • Students classified as a Senior may have 3 Semester exam exemptions.

 

  • A student must have no more than 2 absences for the semester in the course of exemption AND have at least a 90-semester average in the course.

OR

  • A student must have no more than 1 absence for the semester in the course of exemption AND have at least an 80-semester average in the course

 

*All absences will count against exemptions except school-related absences or approved college visits. Other excused absences still count as an absence.

**Any student that qualifies for an exemption may choose to take the exam. The option which best helps the student’s semester grade will be used by the teacher in their calculations.

***The Waxahachie High School exemption policy in dual credit courses pertains only to the Waxahachie High School curriculum.  College courses still must meet the final test / final exam requirements as determined by the college curriculum.

****The students are exempt from their EXAM ONLY, not from attendance at school during semester exams.
