In accordance with the altered nature of this year’s learning, there will be no end of year special schedule to make time for cumulative final exams or presentations. Instead, the regular schedule will continue until the end of classes on June 8.
According to Assistant Principal Asra Ahmed, this decision was made in discussions with both the faculty and curriculum committee.
“The idea was that because first of all many departments are not giving any type of cumulative exam or project in the way they typically would, there wasn’t a need for it like the way we’ve done it in the past,” she said.
Teachers can still have tests or projects within the regular daily schedule.
The decision to not include end-of-year tests was also a major part of the planning process for the end of the year.
Ms. Ahmed said, “That decision was not made by the administration, we just had discussions with the department chairs about where people’s thinking was with it, but it was very much a decision at the department and even teacher level.”
