Rescheduling a Final Exam
Only under serious circumstances, that are out of the student's control, will a student be permitted to take an exam other than at the scheduled time. Students must initiate that request by completing and submitting a form (available at the Reception Area) to be signed by a parent, verifying the need for a change in test time, accompanied by appropriate documentation (i.e. medical documentation, airline tickets, etc...). The request must be submitted two weeks prior to the final and approved by the Associate Principal of Academic Affairs and the teacher involved.
If a student is simply changing the day/hour to ease their exam schedule on a given day, (but not to finish earlier) an email notification from the teacher, approving this arrangement, to Ms. McMaster is all that is necessary.
