Exam Exemption Qualifying Request

Kohler High School Bomber Pride Exam Exemption Initiative

To acknowledge and reward students for demonstrating respectful and responsible behaviors in our high school. The initiative was developed by student leaders and the High School Bomber Pride Team.


A student may exempt from one (1) exam per semester if the following criteria have been met:

  • Student has been absent NO MORE than a total of 27 class periods (the equivalent of 3 days) in the semester.

  • Student has 3 or fewer tardies in the semester.

  • Student has NO unexcused absences. - School-related absences do NOT count toward the total. - Special consideration will be given to students who have multiple absences related to a verified medical condition or special family circumstance. (The Administrative Team will address all appeals.) - Juniors and Seniors will be allowed two days (2) college visits per school year which will NOT count toward total absences for exemption.

*** AP courses are not included in this policy. No students may exempt from an exam in an AP class.

*** A qualifying student may exempt only one (1) semester exam per course. Example: If a student exempts from the semester 1 Geometry exam, that student must take the semester 2 Geometry exam.

*** Any exam that is taken before the attendance cut-off date is not eligible for exemption.

Any attendance errors must be fixed within a week. CHECK YOUR ATTENDANCE WEEKLY.
