End Of Course Exams

Students enrolled in US History, Biology, Geometry and/or Algebra 1 will take an End of Course Exam in their respective course. Depending on when the student entered 9th grade, the exam impacts students differently, with the exception of US History. The US History EOC counts as 30% of the students’ final grade, regardless of 9th grade entry year. Students who entered 9th grade in 2011-2012 have their Geometry EOC count as 30% of their final grade while their Algebra 1 EOC considers whether or not the student receives the credit for the course. Students who entered 9th grade in 2012-2013 have EOCs in Algebra 1, Geometry, and Biology that determine credit for the course. The dates for these exams are as follows:

o US History EOC: April 29th-May 3rd

o Biology EOC: May 6th – May 10th

o Algebra 1 EOC: May 13th – May 17th

o Geometry EOC: May 20th- May 24th
