You must have a semester cumulative average of 90% or a grade of an A in each class you are choosing to exempt.  You must have had NO Saturday Schools, In-school or Out of school suspensions for second semester and you must have NO unexcused absences in ANY CLASS for second semester.  If you are a senior and think you qualify to exempt from an exam, please pick up the form in the office and carefully read and follow the directions.  The forms must be complete and returned by next Wednesday, May 6th.
