Exam Exemption Policy

No Homework Weekends
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 45 class periods (the equivalent of 5 days) in the semester.

Student has 3 or fewer tardies in the semester.

Student has NO unexcused absences.

These types of absences will NOT count toward your total:

-         School-excused absences

-         Absences coded Doctor, Counselor, Dentist, or Ortho

-         Special consideration will be given to students who have multiple absences related to a verified medical condition or special family circumstances.  If this applies to you, fill out an appeal form (found on the website or in Mrs. G’s room) and turn the form in to Mr. DeBaker.

*** 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.

***  If a student must take an exam before the attendance cut-off date, that exam is not  
      eligible for exemption.

Any attendance errors must be fixed within a week.
