Final Exams May No Longer Apply to Seniors
Seniors would have to earn a certain grade in classes to be exempt.
The district is discussing the possibility of allowing Bridgewater-Raritan High School seniors to be exempt from final exams based on earning certain grades in each class.
“We discussed this at the curriculum committee,” said Cheryl Dyer, assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction. “There was positive support for the change.”
Dyer said they are currently considering what requirements should be set to allow students to be exempt. She said the board’s policy committee will discuss it at its first meeting in February.
“Depending on the support at the committee level, it could be coming to the full board for support quickly,” she said.
