Final semester examinations are to be given in all 9-12 courses during the regular school year.  The Chief Academic Officer or his/her designee must approve exceptions to this rule.  Exams may not be given more than one time.  Students may not type, grade, or handle other students’ exams.  Students may not be dismissed from class during exams.  Cheating on an exam will result in the lowest possible grade, according to the grading policy, being given for the final exam grade (see IM 4.144).  Students may not take exams early. If a student must miss an exam, the principal may give permission for the student to make up the exam at a later time.
