Special Education students are given the opportunity to request for exam withdrawal. This gives students the ability to write in a special education environment with additional provisions including extra time.
We have entered the "culminating season," that is in the weeks before the end of classes when a portion up to 30% of the total mark can be demonstrated. Like exams, these culminating activities are legally required and cannot be re-scheduled.
Exams begin January 24.
During the final weeks of classes (which includes the formal examination period), 30% of the students overall mark will be earned through culminating activities and evaluations. During this time, students will be assessed in a variety of ways including such tasks as tests, assignments, in-class essay writing, research reports, presentations, portfolio presentations, and formal examinations. Teachers typically inform students of their mark prior to the culminating activity/examination. The weighting of each task and examination will vary from course to course, but will be clearly explained in the course evaluation overview provided at the beginning of the school year.
The Ontario Secondary School curriculum does not provide for exemptions from culminating activities, and this includes culminating activities and final examinations. Students are expected to complete all aspects of the culminating evaluations. For this reason, there is a moratorium on students being taken out of school for field trips during culminating activities and examinations. This semester it is January 16-20, 2017. There may be some Board-wide activities such as sporting events, which may necessitate that students miss class. In such cases, arrangements will be made to ensure the completion of culminating activities.
Because culminating evaluations are a significant portion of a course mark(30%) and because, in many situations, an evaluation task may take the place of a formal examination, the policies and procedures in place during examinations are extended to cover the period of culminating evaluations. This means that if a student is absent from any part of the culminating evaluation, including both presentations and in-class written work, the reason for the absence must be substantiated with a medical, legal or Vice Principal note. Students should discuss individual situations with either the subject class teacher or the Vice Principal.
