Missed Test / Exam

Students who are absent for a test will be given an alternate test on their first day back in the respective course. A doctor’s note will be required to validate the absence. If a student does not submit a doctor’s note or submits a parent letter only the teacher will follow-up with a parent to inquire about the absence. Students absent for an exam will be given a zero. The only exceptions are at the discretion of the principal. Illness must be documented by a doctor’s note submitted no later than three days after the exam.

For IB Diploma Programme exams we follow the IB exam attendance protocol.

Practices Related to Supporting Students with Attendance on Test Days:

  • Teachers are required to share with students the requirement that a doctor’s note be submitted to verify an absence on the day of a test.
  • Teachers are required to check the appropriate Grade Calendar to avoid scheduling tests on days when two tests are already listed.
  • Teachers are required to post the date of their tests in the appropriate Grade Calendar.
